For our snacks, we had Pooh’s honeycomb. I basically made Rice Krispy treats but substituted Honeycomb cereal for the Rice Krispies. Our second snack was Pooh’s mix. This mix had the following:
- Teddy Grahams- Pooh
- Gummy Bears- Pooh
- Cheeto’s- Tigger’s Tail
- Honeycomb cereal- Pooh’s honeycomb
- Cheddar Rabbits- Rabbit
- Mini Marshmallows- the fluffy white clouds in the movie
- M&Ms- to add color!
Robin Hood was our next movie in our 2016 New Year’s Movie Resolution. We actually watched this movie and had our movie night way back in June of 2016. This movie was released by Walt Disney Studios on November 8, 1973. My mom was actually pregnant with me when this came out! I vaguely remember seeing this movie as a child. I think I remember the book more than the movie.
My boys were familiar with the music because we have several of these songs on a Disney Movies CD we listen to in the car. Robin Hood was such a fun movie for my boys. My oldest had seen it but this was the first viewing for my youngest. Of course, they like the “bad guys” and want to shoot arrows. I knew this would be the case, so for our snack we had arrows and targets!
- box of cupcake mix and necessary ingredients to make cupcakes
- canned vanilla icing
- yellow food coloring
- Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates unwrapped
- strawberry preserves
- Make the cupcakes as directed on the box and let cool.
- Tint the vanilla frosting yellow and use a small icing tip to pipe the icing “noodles” on the cupcake. If you don’t have icing tips you can put the icing in a ziplock bag and snip the corner of the bag off to make a small opening.
- “Roll” the unwrapped chocolates in a bowl of strawberry preserves until coated. Place one chocolate “meatball” on each cupcake and drizzle remaining preserves over the top of the cupcake for sauce. If you’re having a hard time getting the preserves to drizzle, try heating it for a few second in the microwave to make it thinner.
Peter Pan was released on February 5, 1953 and is the 15th movie in our list. I don’t remember the first time I saw this movie, but it’s always been a favorite. I remember seeing the play when I was a girl and then saw the traveling Broadway style performance when I was grown. The characters are fun and memorable, the songs are catchy, and the story is lovable.
My boys and I actually watched this movie together back in April in keeping with our 2016 New Year’s Resolution. Big E helped “decorate” the mantle with our copy of the Peter Pan golden book and his character figurines. We’ve done well keeping up with watching the movies. Maybe blogging about the movies should have been a resolution as well!
This movie had lots of fun snack ideas. We made apple and cheese pirate ships, ate “pixie dust” and had Tick Tock Crock cookies made out of Nutter Butters dipped in green chocolate waffers. Too bad my youngest thought our cookies were Larry the Cucumber…
Last month, we had our second Princess Movie night as part of our Disney Resolution. I thought my boys were going to baulk at the idea of a princess night, but they didn’t! We all enjoyed watching Cinderella and eating yummy snacks!
This movie was released on February 15, 1950. It’s such a classic movie that it literally at the center of Walt Disney World! One of our favorite memories was eating at Cinderella castle and meeting Cinderella. Even though this is a girly, princess movie, my boys loved it. I think Gus, Jaq, and Lucifer helped with that!
For our movie night, we had 2 different snacks: pumpkin pretzels and magic wands. The wands were made with fruit on a bamboo skewers. You could use any fruit that you like, but top it off with a melon you can cut with a star cookie cutter! For the pumpkins, we melted vanilla wafers and added orange coloring. After we dipped the pretzels in the vanilla chocolate, we let them dry on wax paper and added a green M&M mini. These were definitely my favorite!
In addition to snacks and movie watching, families could play dress up as the characters or find coloring sheets. One activity you could do along with watching the movie is play the dress up game on Disney’s web site or have the story read to you.
