We have a weekly family movie night with the kids every Friday Night at our house. It involves everyone in their jammies, sprawled on the sectional with blankets and snacks and inevitably ends with either me or the husband falling asleep while the kids laugh at us.
This past week we watched How to Train Your Dragon 2 with the help of a fun package we received in the mail. The kids and I are huge fans of the first movie so we looked forward to watching the second one. Along with the DVD/Blu-ray, we received plates/cups/napkins/stickers/decorations and some fun activity/colouring sheets. Normally, we don’t go to this much trouble before sitting down to watch a movie but when it arrives at your door, I’m all for it. The kids were totally into it – even the 10 year old, who is too cool for everything these days, enjoyed himself.
First, I decorated the fireplace, while my daughter naturally posed with the DVD in hand.
Then, I set the table – plates I can throw away, instead of wash are my new favourite thing.
Then I set the kids up with the activity sheets while I got dinner ready – ie. put the pizza on the plates. Watch out Martha Stewart.
And then the brood watched the movie, without killing each other which is always a lovely bonus.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 takes place five years after the first movie, where we find Hiccup and Toothless still together and inseparable friends. They discover a secret ice cave with hundreds of wild dragons and the dangerous Dragon Rider. This leads to a battle between both worlds, with Hiccup and Toothless and all their friends in a fight to save the future of both man and dragon. Of course, there are surprises and heartbreak, but I’ll spare you the details so I don’t ruin it for you.
The kids really enjoyed the movie, especially the second time around, and making it a theme night with fun activities, made it that much more fun. Want to have your own fun night?
