Family Movie Night: Peter Pan

Peter Pan’s a movie with a little bit for everyone. Good music. Sword fighting. Tinkerbell. Seriously racist depictions of native populations. It’d been a while since we’d watched it, so I chose it for our next movie night. I delegated dinner prep to Randy while the kids and I made Peter Pan hats from green construction paper.

The menu:

Pirate Ship Hot Dogs

Tinkerbell’s Favorite Dip

Lost Boys Swords

Mermaid Lagoon

Sea Water

 

The pirate ships were just hot dogs in toasted buns with pirate sails. I had intended for the pirate sail making to be a family activity and everyone could decorate their own sail, but we had another afternoon of peaceful sibling play and it seemed a shame to break that up. Yeah, I’m a firm believer in leaving well enough alone.

Tinkerbell’s favorite dip turns out to be ranch dip – who knew? And the Lost Boys swords were carrot and celery sticks.

Mermaid Lagoon was just blue Jello, and the Sea Water was just blue water.

 

Teddy mostly ate cheese, but he did lick a hot dog – one of only a handfuls of interactions with meat that he’s tolerated. So that was happy.

I didn’t have a chance to take pictures, but we did some Walking the Plank before the movie – we have a small balance beam (it’s a 2×4, lol) and we draped it across various sturdy and not so sturdy household objects and took turns walking across it.

 

Genna put on her Tinkerbell dress and shoes and got her plush Tinkerbell from Teddy’s Wish trip to DisneyWorld before we settled down to watch the movie.
