Plan a movie night that kids of all ages (and moms and dads) will have fun at.
One of my favorite ways to spend a day or night indoors is watching movies. Not only is it so much fun to go to another world for two hours but movie parties are the easiest to plan. Pop some popcorn, heat up a few snacks and you are set. In May when it was raining almost every day we had several movie parties with our friends. One thing that I quickly discovered was that, even though I was into the movie and could watch the whole thing, the kids usually got bored after 30 or 40 minutes.
When I saw rain in the forecast again this week I knew a movie party would be in order but this time I would be prepared! My boys have been really into super hero movies lately and with the new Fantastic Four movie coming out I thought it would be fun to have a Fantastic Four Movie Party. The movie is great for all ages and since we were having kids big and small coming I wanted to have something for everyone to do.
For the little ones I wanted to do something for Mr. Fantastic so we made stretchy play dough. It is so easy to make and all the kids loved playing with it!
All you need is:
1 cup conditioner (the cheaper the better. I found this V05 at Walmart for $.75)
2 cups cornstarch
Combine all three ingredients in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon.
Once combined dust a clean surface with cornstarch and knead for 2 minutes.
Store in an air tight container.
The younger kids definitely had more fun than the older kids with this one so I decided to break out my next activity for The Invisible Woman, invisible ink messages.
Dip q-tip into lemon juice and write messages on card stock. You want the q-tips to be soaked well with lemon juice if they aren’t the message won’t appear as well.
Once the lemon juice has dried (5-10 minutes) iron the card stock with an iron on cotton setting.
See message appear.
For the big kids (and dads too) we bought sparklers for the Human Torch.
And what kind of party would it be without food?! Keeping things simple I went with finger foods. When I was at Walmart picking up supplies for the activities I stopped by the frozen department to get a few things to heat up. I saw these Tyson Any’Tizers® and was surprised at all the varieties; there was something that everyone would like. What was even better was that there was a Fantastic Four movie ticket offer on the bags too!
All you have to do is:
Buy 2 participating Tyson Any’Tizers from Walmart between 6/15/15 and 8/15/15.
Take a picture of your receipt and text or email to [email protected] by 11:59PM PST on 8/15/15.
Receive a code that you can redeem for a movie ticket to see Fantastic Four while in theaters.
Use the code by 9/30/15 on tysonmovieoffer.com

Knowing that our friends are big Fantastic Four fans too I bought four bags so we each could get the ticket offer. These Tyson Any’tizers are so easy to make. When you are ready to eat just pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes (or the oven for 15) and bam! You’ve got the perfect, tasty treat everyone will love. And they are more filling then just popcorn or candy alone!
After the movie was over we sent our guests home with a FANTASTIC treat…. Rock Candy (tutorial coming soon) for The Thing and more sparklers. All in all it was one of the funnest parties we’ve and the easiest to prepare. Thanks to the Tyson Any’tizers all I had to do was clean the house before everyone got there!

I love your parties Sydney! They always look like so much fun and the finger foods are a great idea, especially for all of those little ones! I can’t wait to see your next party!

What a fun theme! I had never seen the invisible writing idea before… I’ll be pinning that! In our neighborhood, we do movie nights out in someone’s driveway with a big sheet and projector. Everyone brings their own chairs and snacks and we hang out watching movies together- first a kids’ movie and then one more for the older crowd. It’s always so much fun!
Erin that sounds so much fun!! We should do that in our neighborhood…it’s like your own drive-in movie theater!!
How do I get an invite to your next movie night? It looks like a blast! And the perfect way to get excited for the release of FANTASTIC FOUR! #client
Emily you are too sweet! And you’re welcome anytime! Such a fun campaign; thank you for all your help!

What a fun movie party night! We do a movie night each week (just for the girls and my husband and I) and I’ve been needing some ideas on an activity. I think we will do the invisible writing, but our movie is Nancy Drew, so the girls can write secret messages and look for clues.
That would be so fun! I loved Nancy Drew growing up… I’ll have to watch the movie now!
