Growing up, I went to the movies with my dad nearly every weekend, and in law school my buddy Omar and I continued the tradition. Sadly, hubby doesn’t see the magic of sitting in a theater, so movie weekends went by the wayside after we were married. But as genetics will do, it turns out my kids love movies just like me!
We’ve worked out an awesome compromise – since it’s hard to wrangle (and pay for!) five small kids in a theater, we bought a projector and do movie nights at home, usually on our big patio. We order pizza and make movie inspired snacks and treats. So, naturally I was completely stoked when the opportunity to work with Disney’s Big Hero 6 came about!
The characters in Big Hero 6 both look like, and are named after food, so we made Lemon Cakebox Cookies with Honey Lemon Glaze after Honey Lemon, Baymax marshmallows (for roasting at the table!), and Wasabi Pea snack mix after Wasabi. I grabbed the ingredients and movie on a quick run to Target, threw in some pennants, character inspired balloons – and we had ourselves an instant Big Hero 6 movie screening party!
