Movie Night – Minions The Rise of Gru

We’ve been wanting to see the new Minions movie! You’re either a fan or not of the Minions. For me, I think the first two movies are cute, the Rise of Gru was just okay. My daughter Hadley loved it.

For this movie, I was not as prepared as past movie nights but as I always say the kids don’t really care about all the fancy stuff. I try to remind myself to not overdo it, but sometimes I just can’t help myself. I love doing this stuff! And they will only be so little for so long!

For the goodies, I prepared some Minion type snacks at the last minute, and I think it turned out pretty good. For the twinkies, I printed out a free label I found online and tape it around each one. We already had blue and yellow Oreo packs, for the banana pudding I drew with a sharpie Minion faces, taped the same twinkie label on the bananas, had Minion fruit snacks, and hand picked out the yellow and blue M&M’s and threw in some candy eyes. Already had some yellow and blue paper plates, and that is it!

For the signs, I literally go on Google and search Minion movie under images. Figure out which ones I like best, print them, and tape them up wherever.

Movie night is a favorite around our house. Gives us something to look forward to and unwind for the end of the week. Super simple and easy.

  1. Those Minion snacks are all too fun!! I felt the same way about the new movie. I thought the previous ones were cute, but this one was too over-the-top and didn’t have much of a plot. But my kids loved it as well. 😉
