We loved Big Hero 6
and couldn't wait to see it again when it came out on DVD. Which of course, meant a movie watching party for the little one was in order. I love our just-because get-togethers; the boys are getting older and letting me throw little parties for them is getting harder and harder.
Today was nothing crazy or complicated, just a few fun snacks, a couple of pre-movie crafts and bonding-friends-time.
- First, we colored these awesome super hero masks from Oriental Trading...after all, to quote The Incredibles, 'Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.' Plus, they make awesome photo ops.
- Then, we made marshmallow Baymax treats! They had so much fun and tried so hard not to eat them. I sent them home, way too much sugar to consume. Head over to Moms & Munchkins where I'm sharing the fun how-to.
- I put together a simple treat table with a wrapping paper backdrop, tissue fans and rosettes. Besides popcorn, we served 'Honey Lemon'ade in plastic beakers and candy sushi made with Rice Krispie treats and Twinkies.
- Of course we had to have red lollipops...if you've seen the movie you know why. The kids got a big kick out of them, running around to each other saying 'You have been a good boy. Have a lollipop!'
Be sure and check out my post on Moms & Munchkins
where I'm sharing the fun how-to for how to make your own marshmallow Baymax.
With a few simple treats and activities, you can turn any afternoon into a wonderful one with friends...and friendship is what it's all about.
