I started buying Disney movies for my children as soon as I got married (my daughter was born 3 years into the marriage) because of the fact Disney locks their movies in the vault for years at a time.
We were lucky enough to meet the real Snow White on our trip to Disney last May. Emily fell in love with her and can’t wait to see her again. So when I received the movie, I thought it would be a great time to start our Disney Family Movie Nights. Movie Nights are a great way to ignite the Disney spirit in your family and keep it burning throughout the whole year.
For the movie night I printed off a Snow White craft, purchased a red table cloth (to match her dress), found a package of jewels at Michaels (since the 7 Dwarfs were miners) to create a mining activity and found the cutest popcorn dishes at The Dollar Tree. My kids and my nephew could barely contain their excitement when they found out we were having a Snow White Party.
We started off the evening by making the craft. Emily made Snow White, my nephew made a dwarf and Jacob made a knight. They did a great job except Jacob decided to put all the pieces of his knight on the inside of the tube! Gotta love a 2 year old’s creativity.
For dinner I wanted to do something easy. Ideally I would of made a German meal, but since it was just the kids and me tonight I decided to make something I knew they would eat. So I made Pigs in a Blanket for the first time. The kids laughed and gobbled it all up.
They ate quickly though because they were excited to do the mining activity. I filled 3 bowls with rice and hid a variety of jewels in the rice. I expected Jacob to make a mess and not be interested in finding any of the jewels. I was shocked to discover that he was the one who was most interested and my daughter lost interest before she even found half of her jewels. Jacob found every single one of his and the rest of hers!
