Pin It now!
We had another family movie night last Saturday and it was a blast like usual. :) We were going to be watching A Bug's Life so we planned dinner around that. Here is our dinner table all set up:
We decided to use our picnic table cloth to give it a little bit of a picnic theme. And if you look closely you can see ants wandering around. (Don't worry the "ants" are really just raisins.)
Our movie tickets were set out and ready to be used.
We decided to use some brown construction paper as place mats and I drew some ants on them. For dinner we had piles of dirt (mini meatloaves), an ant hill (mashed potatoes), green plants (salad).
We also had caterpillar rolls.
Ladybugs (strawberries) and more caterpillars (grape kabobs).
And for dessert we dirt and worms (Oreo cheesecake and gummy worms).
I didn't get Dawson's drink in any of the pictures but he was drinking bug juice! (Ok, ok, it was really Mott's for Tots apple juice.)
I had Dawson make a caterpillar out of an egg carton (he LOVES to paint!) and we used his new Rollitt paint set to make the ladybug. He painted a paper plate black and another one red and then I added the dots and put it all together.
And before the movie we changed Dawson into his bug pj's! It was SO hard for me to get a picture of him, he does not like to stay still for long.
I'm really looking forward to our next movie night because we are going to be watching Lilo and Stitch and I have never seen it before! It was hubby's pick and he is definitely going to have to help me with the planning since he has seen it and I haven't.
