With my house full of kiddos, it seems more and more like the time available to spend together is less and less. No matter what is going on in our lives though, one way that I’ve always been able to get my kids all in is for movie nights. Sometimes we’re lucky enough to hit the theaters, but most times, our family movie nights consist of a few rentals from our closest Redbox® kiosk and lots of movie snack foods.
Family movie nights have been one of our favorite things to do since the kids were little, and they still love it. Being that the boys are teenagers now, I consider myself lucky that they so willingly will stay home for a movie night. I try to keep our movie nights fun for all of us, and in order to do that there are a few things I do to make sure it’s just that!
- I let them pick the movies…..as long as they are appropriate! We all love a good scary movie, so there is usually at least ONE scary movie title in the mix.
- I let them make a mess. I can’t stand clutter or a messy living room, but on our movie nights, I let them bring in pillows, blankets, snacks, whatever they need to get comfy and enjoy our time.
- Lots, and I mean LOTS of food to snack on. You can’t have a movie night without snacks right? Some of their favorite movie munchies are finger foods like State Fair® Classic Mini Corn Dogs, Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and Honey Battered Tenders. I always make sure to have all of their favorites.
Now through April 15th ,Tyson Foods and participating Redbox locations are going to make family movie night easier for us with their fun “Winter to Go” promotion. They are joining forces to offer us free movie nights with the purchase of participating Tyson Foods, State Fair or Jimmy Dean products at participating Walmart stores.
