Family Movie Night: Planes: Fire and Rescue
I decided it was time to watch one of Teddy’s movies for Family Movie Night. Usually, I’ve tried to pick movies we don’t watch very frequently, but I thought Teddy would appreciate watching one of his favorites. And by “favorites,” I mean, we’ve watched it at least 1000 times, and that’s not an exaggeration.
So the menu for the night was:
Corn Festival Corn on the Cob
Dottie’s Favorite Vegetable, Green Beans (betcha didn’t know that, didja?)
Fire Extinguishing Fluid to drink (water)
Fire Jello (layered red and orange jello topped with fire retardant, aka Whipped Cream)
Red Warning Lights (so… we had strawberries that needed to be eaten…)
and for a snack during the movie, we had Fire. Fire was supposed to be Cheetos, but we had a last-minute inspiration with red, yellow, and orange sweet peppers instead!
The airplanes were super fun. Little Smokies wrapped with Crescent roll dough (yeah, from a can) and baked, and then small popsicle sticks stuck through them.
For decorations, I asked Teddy to get out all of his Planes toys and put them on the table. This lasted for a while, but ultimately, all the planes ended up at Teddy’s spot, of course.
We did zero activities. Teddy fell asleep mid-afternoon and Genna played with the neighbor boy and it was actually quiet and I had orders waiting for me, so we just didn’t worry about it. 🙂 I’m not sure what we’d have done, anyway.
