Our family loves having family movie nights. It’s a nice break from our busy sports and work schedules and the perfect way to spend time together as a family. There’s nothing better than cuddling up together on the couch! Typically we take turns picking the movie but this week I bought the Peter Rabbit Blu-Ray + DVD Combo from Walmart for us to watch. I don’t typically get into “kid” movies but I’d seen commercials for this movie and it looked hilarious. Movies that the whole family can enjoy are the best because they keep mom, dad, AND the kids entertained!
I put together a cute little gift basket to surprise my boys with my movie selection for the week. Along with the Peter Rabbit movie, I added in a couple of their favorite frozen meals from Kid Cuisine, including Luke’s favorite- the Kid Cuisine All Star Chicken Breast Nugget Meal, for the boys to enjoy before movie night (because who wants to be doing the dinner dishes when they could be enjoying time with their family?!). Kid Cuisine serves up kids’ all-time favorites, many with full servings of vegetables. With these easy meals, you know you’re choosing dishes that will satisfy your kids. Plus, they usually have a fun dessert that kids love!
I also added in a box of Orville Redenbacher’s Movie Theater Butter Flavored Popcorn because popcorn is a must-have on movie night (and the more butter the better in my opinion)! I like Orville Redenbacher’s popcorn because they have a lot of flavor varieties and they are the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, or Dyes in any of its products. The Kettle Corn flavor is delicious as well when you are craving something a bit sweeter.
Everything fit into a basket that looked like a white picket fence.I thought it was perfect for this because it reminded me of the gate to Mr. McGregor’s garden. The movie night gift basket was a fun surprise for them after a long day at school!
I also set up a simple “garden” themed popcorn bar since, in the movie, Peter Rabbit and his three sisters love spending their days in Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden trying to eat all his veggies. I put the popcorn in a bushel basket with an unused garden trowel as the scoop and put some napkins in a watering can. The popcorn was served in small garden pots (that were lined with napkins).
For the mix-ins I set out chocolate cookie pieces (to represent dirt but just not as messy as crushed cookies), gummy worms (like you’d find in the soil), mini marshmallows (aka bunny tails), and candy pieces (with orange ones to represent carrots). The boys favorite part of the evening was creating their own special popcorn mix!
For your own popcorn bar you can do any mix-ins your family would like. I just stuck with our movie night theme. Other mixins we enjoy are raisins, sunflower seeds, dried apple pieces, and chocolate chips. Just make sure you have some of everyone’s favorites!
The kids loved our fun family night with their special dinner and treats. We all thought the movie was great and I’m glad that we have it in our collection now. Whether it’s a family movie night during the week, or celebrating a special event, Peter Rabbit is a fun movie for the whole family. Plus, the DVD/Blu-Ray combo came with a digital copy which will be great for rewatching it on our travels this summer!
You can pick up everything you need for your next family movie night at Walmart.
