Each week my family does a movie night. Normally, it's a cartoon and we go all out! We put on our pjs, fix fun snacks, grab our blankets, turn off the lights and sit on the living room floor for our feature film. It wasn't until recently that I noticed something was missing. We haven't been including one member of our family! We've been leaving out our "first baby", Dusty.
So this family movie night included the whole family! And what better movie to watch than "We Bought A Zoo". It's all about a grieving family that buys a zoo and how the animals and people that work at the zoo become a part of their own family.
Now how do you plan the perfect family movie night? First, you need treats! I know the normal is popcorn but we wanted something a little more fun and zoo themed! I headed to Walmart to pick up the perfect supplies: Del Monte fruit cups (if you get First for Women magazine then you'll find a $.50 off coupon for Del Monte fruit cups), sponge cake, whip cream and animal crackers. I used these ingredients to make a fun little "Who let the zoo animals out" treat. It was a big hit with the kids! By the way, if you want to see my entire "zoo" shopping experience check out my google + album!
Meow Mix, Kibbles and Bits and Milkbone! Del Monte Pet products are even being featured in Women's World and Parade magazines! While I didn't find the coupon, I did pick up some milkbones and some Milo's Kitchen treats for my pup.
What did we think of the movie? Well it was a little slow for the attention span of a 3 year old and 4 year old. My 4 year old did start to get into it when the animals started making more of an appearance and my tool obsessed 3 year old even tried to join in with the Zoo inspector by pulling out his measuring tape and measuring stuff in the house! I'm not really into dramas but my husband and I really liked the movie. The themes were a little deep for kids but it was such a heart warming/feel good story! The only part I didn't like was the snakes; but then again I have a phobia of snakes...LOL
