After a fun spring break family vacation, we are back home enjoying the awesome Arizona weather in my favorite season. We travel often to California but that road trip was especially great because we were well prepared with family road trip data. We maxed our tax cash and purchased a new Samsung Galaxy On5 with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan including Unlimited* Talk, Text, & Data plus a free VUDU movie credit every month per line (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G). Having that extra data made the six hour drive to California feel easy. Last week we used our first free VUDU movie credit for an easy family movie night. Our oldest daughter enjoys the movie theater but it’s been almost two years since our family was able to see a movie in the theater together. Her little sister isn’t quite old enough to enjoy the theater experience so instead, we’re using the free monthly movie credit for movie nights at home.
A lit marquee and snack station full of treats, popcorn and silly drink cups gave our family movie night a real theater feel. I made a backdrop with red and yellow vinyl tablecloths like the one I made for our first birthday mermaid party. The table also featured popcorn bags and bins so everyone could easily carry their snacks to a favorite living room seat.
Having a free VUDU movie credit every month per line means we can have family movie nights at home often. The Walmart Family Mobile plan is a great investment with our tax refund because it will continue to give back all year. We purchased the Samsung Galaxy On5 (retail price of $119 but currently on rollback for $69!), $19.88 SIM Kit, and $49.88 monthly plan. Since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up.
For our family the movie theater experience is all about the snacks so I made a quick concession stand with a chalkboard easel. I printed “SNACKS” then transferred it to the chalkboard by tracing the back of the paper with white chalk. Then I traced the letters with a chalk marker.
The snack stand was filled with favorite theater treats: M&M’s, Skittles and Starburst.
If you follow me on Snapchat, you saw the fun we had popping popcorn before our family movie night. Our youngest daughter loved watching as it popped and couldn’t wait to fill her bag to cuddle on the couch with her big sister.
Silly straws are fun but cups with straw handles are even better. I made punch for the cups and placed them on our snack station table so everyone could pick their favorite colored lid.
Small organization bins are perfect to carry all your movie night snacks to the couch. Each family member had their own bin with favorite treats, popcorn and drink.
At just eight, our oldest daughter, loves snapping photos. The family movie night popcorn and M&M’s mix is definitely worthy of landing a spot on the camera roll.
