With the cold & dark winter evenings upon us, it is time to look for fun (indoor) ideas for chilly evenings!
Last weekend we had a fun, late night, movie night with popcorn, pyjamas, pillow play, Disney princesses and a Cars film chucked in there, for the lads. The girls chose to wear matching PJs, these came in handy when performing their choreographed dance routines! The lads chose to mix it up in different styles- boys will be boys and girls will be girls, right?!
We purchased these amazing reusable popcorn containers, plastic and washable, from Amazon. There are plenty to choose from, I personally loved the pink polka dot ones, however Louis had something to say about that! So we settled on the vintage looking red and white stripe. The kids LOVED having a popcorn just for themselves and it is a great way to control the portions they ate!
I think, in future, when we head to the cinema I will take these along. A great way to stop arguments mid movie…(in hush, yelling, voices) ‘he ate all my popcorn’ ‘give me back the pop corn’ ‘shhhhh’ you know the drill…
The movie night was a hit! The kids all enjoyed it and were found exhausted and napping on the fold out couch by midnight. We are in the other room enjoying more of an ‘adult’ evening where our red and white pop corn boxes were swapped for red and white wine!
This weekend Louis thinks it is his turn to choose the indoor entertainment…his plan is fort building…I am less convinced!! Wish me luck xx
