Going to the theater is always fun and so is a night in every now and then. With so many movies coming out being sequels or prequels it’s fun to throw a family movie night party to refresh your memory. In our case it’s often the first time we see a movie because both the kids are finally really sitting through the movie without having to get up for something so I wrote a piece for Fandango about preparing food and having a fun party before going to the theater….I’m a contributor to Fandango’s Family Room.

Three of the big children’s movies this summer are sequels or prequels to movies that already came out, and it’s quite easy to have a great party, celebration or movie night in preparation of the new release. My family loves to get ready for new movies because we go all out, starting with getting all dressed up. My kids love to create ways to get dressed up in a themed way.
The next movie to come out as a sequel for kids is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. I was watching a preview for it with my kids as we were watching Despicable Me and my mind went crazy with ideas! Now our party plans are all about the food. We are going to have special chocolate-covered popcorn with M&Ms and marshmallows, meatballs on a stick and, of course, we will be watching the original Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Here are a couple of my recipes for you to try out:
