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.
