Peanuts Family Movie Night

Quality time with family is priceless. So I was pretty excited to find out about the awesome family movie night my friends at Fox Home Entertainment had planned for us, with the release of The Peanuts Movie on DVD + Blu-ray!

  

My sisters couldn’t wait to come over for the festivities as soon as I told them what was in store for our at-home party. Snacks, games, movies. What more could you ask for?!

  
First up were some games. UNO has long been my family’s favorite for game nights, flight layovers, you name it. In fact, when I was growing up (before my sisters were around), my parents and I used to keep a running score sheet to keep tabs on our games because the competition was always so much fun. Playing UNO with Peanuts was such a fun way to bring the tradition back!

  

We had planned to play ball and fly a kite (favorite activities of Charlie Brown), but unfortunately, the weather didn’t hold out for us. We’ll just have to give it a try this weekend. Believe it or not, flying a kite is something I’ve NEVER done! 

  
Next up, preparing for the movie (read: snacks). Movie snacks are HUGE for my family, and if you ever catch a movie with us, you definitely won’t go hungry. Popcorn, of course, is the primary staple, but we als added some Peanuts Pez and cheese crackers to the mix!

  
And as usual, Sheba also found herself at the center of all the fun! To be honest, I think we might’ve found some inspiration for my beagle mix’s Halloween costume this year! So much cuteness!

   
 
Want to join in on the Peanuts fun? I’m giving away TWO digital copies of The Peanuts Movie so you can have your own movie night with Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the Peanuts gang! Enter below for a chance to win below!

    You know, when you said you’ve never flown a kite I started thinking about it…I don’t think I have either! This is something you and I need to get on immediately.

    • March 27, 2016 / 11:34 AM

      Agreed! I think your daughter would love going out and flying a kite too :)

    This looks like SO much fun! I loved Peanuts when I was a little kid, but I haven’t had a chance to introduce the crew to my daughter yet. This would be such a great way to have fun with the entire family! :)

      Really?! That’s so awesome! What did he do for the movie?

        He’s a CG character animator, he helped bring the characters to life. :)
