Do you guys remember how I love creating fun times and memories with my family? We love a good movie night or other fun together. How about you? I’ve got a souper fun idea that your whole family will love for a Frozen themed family movie night.
Lately, with going to a blog conference and things being busy with work and family obligations, I’ve been feeling a bit stressed. When I’m feeling stressed, I’m a lot less likely to create fun times for myself and for the family. Anyone else with me there? I know that I actually need the fun times more, as does my family, during these times. It just feels like one more thing to do. Please tell me you know what I mean.
I got over that the other night. I created a super easy and super fun family movie night for us all themed around the movie Frozen. I’m telling you this took me just a few minutes to pull together and helped us have a relaxing evening together as a family. My girls loved helping me brainstorm fun ideas for our Frozen movie night which adds to the fun for me and them. 🙂
Now, if you have read my blog for a bit you know, I’m all about keeping things healthy. If we are going to have a souper fun family night, I need us to start with a healthy dinner. I wanted the dinner to be quick and easy as well. I don’t think it gets much more easy than Campbell’s® Classic Condensed Soup!
I love that they have a new label which features Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. Perfection! It goes so well with my Frozen movie night. We even get to eat dinner according to the theme!
The noodles are fun princess shapes! I paired our soup with some cheesy bread. We love cheesy bread with soup. To make it, just cut a baguette in half and add some mozzarella cheese. Bake until bubbly and just starting to brown. It is quick and easy.
We also decided to eat Olaf’s nose for dinner. Lol! I just peeled a carrot and voila….Olaf’s nose and a large carrot my children will now eat. 🙂
After our souper quick, easy and yummy dinner, I set up a ‘concession stand.’ I have all the tickets from my family movie night printables laminated so we can use them over and over. I just pulled those out and gave each person one set of tickets.
They got a ticket to attend the movie as well as for: 1 popcorn, 1 drink, 1 treat, and 1 candy.
We don’t eat a ton of sweets and I tend to be conscious of eating healthy, but I also think we need to have fun as well. This was fun! Let me show you how we kept the Frozen theme alive.
These were the selections for the popcorn and drink. We didn’t do anything special to the popcorn.
Our drink was a layered drink. Have you made those before? I made them once for some dancing family fun. The kids think they are super fun, especially since we never have sugary drinks.
To make a layered drink, pick two different color drinks that have different sugar levels (at least 5 to 10 grams apart). Fill your glass with ice. Pour the higher sugar content drink in first, pouring on the ice. Again, pouring slowly and directly on the ice, pour your second color drink into your glass. In this case, we used organic lemonade and blue sports drink. It goes perfectly with Frozen.
Our selections for the treat and candy. We called the trailmix the treat and the cookies the candy. Close enough. 🙂
While Anna is on the trail to find her sister, I’m sure she gets quite hungry. We put together equal parts cereal and cheese crackers. We added about half that amount of both marshmallows and blue chocolate covered candy. (It had to be blue of course!) Yum!
I can not keep these cookies in my house. I have no willpower where they are concerned, but they are blue and fit the theme perfectly, so we had them as our ‘candy.’
I had most of the supplies on hand to create this fun Frozen family movie night. We started with our quick, easy, and yummy Campbell’s® Classic Condensed Soup dinner(which you can find the new Frozen labeled soup at grocery stores and wholesale clubs now) and added in some additional themed ‘concessions.’
I had to buy a couple of things to make this movie night happen, but that was just a quick trip to the store. All in all it made for a super fun night together as a family. I really needed it and I know my family did as well. I’m so glad that I made the choice to take the time to create some family fun and magic together.
Just remember that it doesn’t have to be a big complicated thing or something that costs a lot of money. Fun with your family can be quick to pull together. Sometimes those are the best times….especially when life is busy or stressful.
What is your favorite movie night with your family? Any theming going on at your house?
