Family Movie Night: Finding Nemo and Up


I’m a little behind in blogging these, but that’s ok. 🙂  Our next movie night was Finding Nemo! I think we’ve all seen it several times, but I was in the mood for fish, so Nemo it was!

The menu included:

  • Fish sticks – though I got lazy and we ended up with fillets.
  • Octopus – hot dogs sliced up to look like octopus
  • Sea Shells – macaroni and cheese made with shell macaroni
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Watermelon cut to look like a shark
  • Ocean Water (ok, really, just water.)
  • Fish-shaped Cookies


You can see that I could have done a better job with the watermelon, lol.


Goldfish crackers are one of the foods Teddy eats, so that was his dinner.


And our craft for the afternoon was making a fish from a TP tube. Generally speaking, the eye goes on the flat side there, but whatever!



Up is one of those movies we don’t watch much. It’s just never been anyone’s favorite. We chose Up for our movie night on vacation, since the menu was easy to make away from home.

Of course we decorated with lots of balloons. Teddy, however, has a thing with balloons. They’re not allowed to stay inflated.

On the Menu:

  • Hot Dogs
  • Watermelon
  • Corn on the Cob
  • French Fries
  • Grape Soda
  • Helium Balloon Bunches

The Helium Balloon Bunches were Rice Krispie Bars made with Trix instead of Rice Krispies and shaped into balls on straws. Tip: wear gloves and butter them well.
