How To Celebrate An Incredible Family!
Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack captured our hearts as fast and as easily as our own kids did. Now that this special Pixar family is available in Blu-ray and DVD to enjoy over and over at home, how about having a viewing party to celebrate The Incredibles 2 and your own family? Not much is needed, here is how we did it:
Incredibles 2 Family Movie Night Celebrations
No capes darling. please. But, do say yes to all the masks!!! It has been super fun for us because it is Halloween, and we put masks on every pumpkin and skeleton around. The kids got a kick out fo that. They also enjoyed:
- Incredible snacks: make is easy and simple. If you say movies, I will reply popcorn. So, spruce up your popcorn with red and yellow candy. We added blue because Frozone is a favorite in our home.
- Frozone Milkshake: another quick and fun treat that won’t take more than two steps to make. Mix milk, vanilla ice cream and blue food die. Serve in a glass and top with whip cream and blue sprinkles.
- Jack-Jack cookies: while these Incredible cookies are delicious and perfect for Halloween, we had to make our very own Jack- Jack chocolate chip cookies. A fun activity to include in the festivities
- All about YOUR “incredibleness”: we sat everyone down, and asked each person to say something they thought was incredible about the person to their right. It was a wonderful way to remind each other of what makes us special. Of course, that brought on some crazy family storytelling and laughter.
- Incredibles 2: no one will let you forget to press play and enjoy the movie and all its bonus features!
- Goodie bags: yes, we love all the swag. Everyone took home candies, an Incredibles 2 movie poster, Incredibles inspired toys and games plus a Halloween pail with its very own Incredibles mask!
