I love any excuse to throw a party. This week I had TWO reasons to celebrate! It was Dave’s birthday week AND Big Hero 6 came out on DVD! So, I thought, why not combine these two awesome things into one super fun family movie night! Avery has been slightly obsessed with Baymax since she first saw the preview. That obsession grew when we were in Disney World and Baymax toys, posters and even life size inflatables were everywhere. I knew we needed to buy the film as soon as it came out on DVD!
Avery and I headed to Walmart to get it on the release date and saw that they had a Walmart exclusive 2 DISC Disc BD+DVD=DC+WM GWP 2 pack! Gift with Purchase? SOLD!!
We found it, right in the front of the store. As soon as she saw the display Avery screamed “BAYMAX!!” and ran to give the display a hug! (You can also find the movie and Big Hero 6 toys at Walmart.com)We grabbed our DVDs and then headed to find our party supplies. I had some big plans for snacks and crafts to go along with the movie! When we got home I went right to work! I started with the Silly Sushi! I’m not a fan of the real deal, but when it’s made with candy? I’ll eat it all day! These are incredibly easy to make, and you can find all different ideas on pinterest! I used rice krispy treats, swedish fish and airhead extremes. Like, I said, they are simple. You just cut the rice krispy treats to the size you’d like, place a fish on the top, then wrap the airhead around it, pressing in at the bottom to secure. And TA-DA! Cute, colorful, fun, and yummy “sushi”
Keeping with the faux sushi theme (because I figure this is a staple in the San Fransokyo diet) I made another style with bananas, peanut butter and fluff, wrapped in a tortilla! Again, super simple to create, and also super yummy! 1. Spread the fluff on the tortilla (If it’s difficult to spread you can pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften)
2. Spread peanut butter on the tortilla.
3. Place a banana on the tortilla.
4. Roll it up!
5. Cut into small slices. (I wrapped mine in saran wrap and put in in the freezer for a few minutes to make it easier to cut)
Then it was on to one of Dave’s favorite desserts. JELLO! I had originally planned to make simple jello cups, but then I thought “Ohh Why not go all out on this and make layered finger jello!”
So I did.
This recipe isn’t really difficult, it’s just time consuming. I had never made it before and scoured the internet for a simple-to-follow recipe. This is the one I used: Finger Jello After the layers were all set, I cut the jello into squares, added a dollop of whipped topping, and a Baymax marshmallow! I used a gel icing pen to make the eyes.
No family movie night is complete without POPCORN! So, I grabbed some cups and drew Baymax faces on them. They were really cute and Avery wants to eat and drink everything out of Baymax cups now! Thank you Disney for creating a character that EVERYONE can draw!
While shopping, I also picked up some glow lanterns. I thought they’d be fun to decorate our table with! They gave the feel of San Fransokyo at night! As one last little craft, I decided to make Avery her own Baymax hoodie! Again, thanks for the easy to draw characters, Disney. This entire project took less than 5 minutes to make! 1. Lay your sweatshirt out on a clean surface. Place cardboard under the area you’re going to paint in case any paint bleeds through.
2. Use something round to trace for the eyes (or freehand it it you’re that awesome!)
3. Draw the two circles and connect them in the middle with a straight line.
4. Fill in the eyes and trace the line between them with fabric paint (Avery chose glitter paint, of course)
5. Allow to dry completely before wearing.
We all had a great time at our little family movie night, and everyone loved the movie. I’m looking forward to sitting down and watching the bonus DVD that came in the set. “The Science of Big Hero6” I love robots, and it looks fascinating!
