Pete's Dragon Movie Night


Pete's Dragon is such a sweet story.  I loved the original as a kid and this one is different but so cute.  My kids enjoy it too so it makes a great family movie night choice.  
We often watch a movie over the weekend but this time I wanted to make it a little extra special.  When my kids got home from school I gave them their own movie pass and mini popcorn box.

How cute are these!  I'm not sure if you can read it but it says admit one and free popcorn on each ticket.  I printed them on cardstock.

 This is what your popcorn box printable will look like.  Fold on the white lines and tape.  They look small but they are actually a great size for popcorn or candy.

 We've been working on the Letter P during preschool so we also had pizza and punch with our popcorn.
While we waited for the pizza to bake we played one of my kids favorite games...Don't eat Pete.  However I changed the tittle just a bit :)

If you've never played here's a quick how to:  Print off the board game...cardstock works best.  Place one piece of candy (candy corn, m&m's, Cheerios, or whatever you have) on each dragon.  Send one person to out of the room and quietly decided which one is going to be Pete's dragon for that round.  Lets say you pick the one in the center.  Have the person come back into the room and eat one of the pieces of candy off each character UNTIL they pick up the one chosen as Pete (in this case the one in the center).  When they pick up this candy everyone yells "Don't eat Pete!" and their turn ends.  Add candy to the ones taken on the last turn and play as many times as you want picking a new Pete each time. 
Besides making the printables it didn't take much time to plan, print, and set up this fun movie night.  With our busy schedules its nice to take a break and just be together.  Adding these few fun printables made it a little extra special and something they are still talking about.
