Family Movie Night: Meet the Robinsons
Meet the Robinsons is one of my favorite undervalued Disney movies. It just doesn’t get the lovin’ that other Disney flicks do, and I don’t know why. The story is awesome. The music is fun and catchy and I love basically every song. Features a smart kid. Unconditional love. “Keep Moving Forward!” What more could you want from a movie?!? Our next trip to Disney, I fully intend to DisneyBound (like casual cosplay) as Franny.
Our planned activity was making a robot head at least sort of like Carl to use as our centerpiece, but then… First, the kids had trouble getting their chores done, and then they were all three playing together and getting along and there was no yelling or anything and I just couldn’t interrupt that, so we had no craft or activity today. Related, we also had no centerpiece. We survived.
Our menu for the evening:
- Cheese Pizza from Art’s Intergalactic Pizza.
- Fruit Hat Salad
- Juice Boxes
- Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
- Bowler Hat Cookies
For the pizza, we just used a take and bake from our grocery store and put it in an old PapaJohn’s box that I’d saved. The artwork on the top of the box came from here.
The fruit salad is inspired by the silly fruit hat worn by Lewis to cover up his hair in the future. The juice boxes are obviously because Goob drinks juice boxes. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich from Lewis’s disastrous meeting with the potential adoptive parents.
Bowler Hat Cookies – the idea came from this website. Hot Tip: Krispy Kreme doughnut holes are too crumbly and irregularly shaped. Learned that one the hard way.
Someone was sampling the frosting when she was decorating…
