Create an inexpensive and easy party for a great birthday or just a fun night for your kids and their friends.
Send out your ticket invitations for party fun. I had made invitations to my son's class movie night. I took the large popcorn boxes and computer post cards and made a custom invitation. I printed out the information on the postcards and then glued movie night confettionto the postcard with a glue stick. I put the postcard into the popcorn box and use a hole punch and tied the bag with a black ribbon. I hole punched a movie night placecard that I had personalized with each child's name and put that on the ribbon. They were really a big hit.
Rent a couple of good kid friendly movies and set make plans to set up a concession stand. If you really want to splurge rent a slushie or popcorn machine. You can find movie candy for $1.00 or less.
Great games for a movie night: charades or pictionary or Scene-It.
Create a movie of your movie night. We set up a red carpet spot and interviewed each child and recorded all the charades and games. Send them home with the movie as a favor!
Create your own awards ceremony. Have the kids vote or create them yourself. Best Actress, Best Comedian, etc. We did most likely to play the role of.... and then had characters like Jack Sparrow, Hannah Montana etc. The kids voted and thought it was great fun!
Have the kids come dressed as their favorite character!
