We had some great friends who live a ways away over for a fun, Christmasy day on Saturday. In the Evening after feeding the kids an early dinner, I thought they could play movie theater and watch a Christmas movie together, while us adults had a relaxing dinner together.
I found this fun fringed curtain at the party store and cut out “Movie Theatre” on my cricut machine. We turned our play McDonald’s into a ticket booth.
We made the signs and the popcorn and movie tickets from some fun pintables found at Sweet Daisy Designs.
Our buddy Dan lent us his fancy movie theatre style popcorn maker, and I found these cute popcorn containers at the party store.
Unfortunately the kids were so excited about the tickets and the booths that they all ended up fighting over who would be what, and 4 of the 5 were in tears! I guess they liked it all a little too much! Eventually they settled down and took turns, and we enjoyed a nice dinner while they watched the Christmas movie. I’m sure the movie theatre will get lots of use over the Christmas break too, and we’ll all get to “enjoy the show”!
