With two Preschoolers, especially one with Autism, going out to the movies is honestly more stress than it is worth to me. So perfecting our at-home movie nights has become a welcome tradition in our household. Recently I headed out to our local Wal-Mart to purchase The Boxtrolls on Blu-Ray for a movie night. Jude was especially excited about seeing the movie after watching a preview.
Of course, no movie night is complete without snacks. I came up with a new fun mixture for this occasion, Movie Night Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn Bars. Oh my word, they turned out SO GOOD. If you are a popcorn fan this is a must. Highly recommend using Pop Secret Movie Theater Popcorn for this recipe, I love the 10 count box option available now at Wal-Mart. We eat a lot of Popcorn in this house. (Recipe can be found below)
Aside finding another excuse for stuffing my face with delicious treats… I find that actually sitting down and watching a new movie with the kids and knowing what it is about more in depth has really helped us to create conversation about the themes that are at play in the movies. It’s a great way to get on their level and discuss positive and negative behaviors in a way that they can understand and visualize in the moment. Jude and Ruby both really enjoyed The Boxtrolls, however Jude seemed especially drawn to it. He even shouted, “I want to go IN the movie!” which I’ve never heard him say before and thought was especially cute. Love making these kinds of memories with my kiddos. I highly recommend buying The Boxtrolls (available at Wal-Mart while supplies last) to watch with your kiddos, such a fun and different movie for kids.
