Get creative with a movie theme night.
Make family movie night into a theme night by adding snacks, decorations and crafts that go along with the movie you’re planning to watch.
For example, while you cook up some Chicken Souvlaki for supper, your kids could be creating a laurel wreath crown (like this one). And maybe make some fun decorations such as greek pottery.
Adding themed snacks is one of the easiest (and most enjoyable) ways to spice up family movie night. Here are some ideas to get you started!
- Pineapple Dole Whip
- Tzatziki with pita and cut veggies for dipping
- Scones with clotted cream and jam
- Fry up some New Orleans style Beignets
- Homemade Sala with chips
