Did you guys know that Big Hero 6 was released on Blu Ray and DVD last week? If you didn’t know, then you certainly haven’t been walking to thru Walmart with your little ones since Tuesday because my kids FREAKED OUT when they saw it on display.
Your purchase of the Big Hero 6 Blu-Ray/DVD + Gift With Purchase Set includes a digital movie on Vudu while supplies last! Simply scan your receipt using the Savings Catcher in the Walmart app. Then look for a message on your phone or email. Now you can watch Big Hero 6 on any device!
We saw it in theaters and the whole family enjoyed it. So we grabbed the two pack gift set and brought it home with the intention of sharing our love with friends at a movie release party!
This party was probably my favorite one yet because both kids were so involved in the party prep. It was all simple things that they could do. They got really good at drawing two circles and connecting them with a line!!
Ok, enough about that, lets get down to the fun details of the party. Here’s a fun video I made with the party details.
I started the morning by surprising my kids with their own Baymax t-shirts I had made them the night before. They were so excited to be wearing them for the party!
The food table for the party was a red and white theme with lots of Baymax and Hiro inspired printables. Above the table I hung the fun “Big Hero 6″ banner that is available in the free printable pack.
For the drink I just combined a lemon lime soda with a fruit punch drink, equal parts. It’s a fun drink for kids and easy to make. We used styrofoam cups for the drinks and drew Baymax faces on them using black sharpie. We also had some red straws that I glued the fun Big Hero 6 straw flags onto the top.
The cupcakes were the biggest hit with everyone. I made a red velvet cupcake (with extra red!) and topped it with a white vanilla frosting (see the red and white theme!!). Then I put the cupcake toppers in half of them and put some one the table and raised some up onto a cake plan.
Behind the cupcakes I put the fun Baymax quote which stood up on a black/white clipboard.
And because the kids aren’t allowed to have the red drink in the living room, I also got small water bottles that they were welcome to take on the carpet. I created water bottle labels that I hot glued in place.
- 18 Red Velvet Oreos - blended into small crumbs
- 4 oz cream cheese - room temperature
- white chocolate melts
- black edible marker
- Sucker sticks
- Blend all of your oreos into small crumbs and then add into a large mixing bowl or a kitchen aid mixer. Mix in the cream cheese until smooth.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes
- Roll the "dough" into 1 inch balls and then squish until forms an oval shape. Place onto wax paper and place into the freezer for 1 hour.
- Melt the white chocolate in a double broiler or in microwave at ½ heat in 30 second increments.
- Dip the tip of the sucker stick into the melted white chocolate then push that end into the cookie ball. Then dip the whole cookie ball into the white chocolate melts and then let dry fully
- Draw the Baymax face onto the dried white chocolate.
The party started out with some fabulous games. I mean, what group of 3-8 year olds don’t love the idea of destroying/knocking things down as well as wrapping things in toilet paper? I think these were the perfect games to play with this group of kids and they went so well with the theme of the party/movie.
We used some smaller styrofoam cups and drew the easy Baymax face on them. This was fun and easy for William (5) to do. We stacked the cups in a pyramid and then using our Baymax rocket fist, the kids took turns seeing how many of the cups they could knock with one shot!
The second game we did was team work oriented. I paired everyone up and they took turns “dressing” one another up as Baymax. To do this I gave each team a roll of toilet paper. They then picked who would be Baymax and who would do the wrapping. I set the timer for 1 minute and they used the toilet paper to make their partner look as much like Baymax as they could. This was my favorite part of the whole party because the team work and creativity really came out in the kids. It surprised me to see how each team took their task and executed it in such different ways.
When it was movie time, I gave each of the kids their own Baymax pillow that I had made. They were small and fun, and as the movie progressed it was funny to see some of them use it to cover their eyes when an intense scene came on!
