We are all about magic, here. And we also love movies. One of our favorite ways to bring magic is with Disney. But since we can’t go to the parks whenever we need a little more magic in life, (every day,) we like to bring it home, too. One of the best ways to do that is through movies, and of course, movie nights. Since Toy Story is on its fourth installment now, we wanted to help you set up a Toy Story movie night.
When you’re done here, be sure to click on the next button at the bottom to make your way through the Disney Friends Blog Hop. Visit the other helpful Disney bloggers participating and find more tips to bring Disney magic home.
First off, you need to decorate for your movie night. Since it’s a Toy Story theme, you will want toys. Obviously. Classic toys are best. Wooden blocks, slinkys, Mr. Potato head, whatever you have on hand. Just scatter it around the room. Or, if you have a toddler, you can skip this step, because it’s already scattered around the room. Tsum Tsums are also a great choice for decor.
Next up, you need to have an appropriate meal. And since the Pizza Planet truck has made an appearance in every Toy Story movie so far, that means pizza has got to be on the menu. It doesn’t even need to be fancy, since arcade pizza is never fancy.
Then, you will need something to drink. You can make Hamm-inspired drinks for everybody. Just get clear plastic cups, pink lemonade, and a black marker. Draw two black ovals on the bottom of the cup, then fill it with pink lemonade. Tada, pig noses! It’s that easy.
Finally, you will want something to snack on while you watch your favorite Toy Story movie. To make the alien popcorn, you will need more clear cups, googly eyes, popcorn, and light green candy melts. Pop the popcorn first. Then, melt your candy melts. Dump all your popped popcorn into a gallon baggie, or a bowl or something. Add in your lime green candy melts (melted.) Odds are, you will have to stir it around by hand to get anything but a large glob of green with popcorn stuck to it. But it’s worth it when you have a delicious snack afterward. You will want to let this cool just a little when you are done coating the popcorn. This is the perfect time to make your cups. Just glue three googly eyes across the upper part of the cup. Almost in a line, but make the center one just a bit higher up. Then fill with your green popcorn.
Enjoy Your Toy Story Movie Night
And there you have it. A simple, cheap, Toy Story movie night that is still loads of fun.
