We’ve been so busy this summer that it was time to surprise my family with a fun movie night at home! I headed to my local Dollar Tree and stocked up on all our favorite movie snacks and supplies to make this movie night box!
Although, this movie night box can also make for the perfect last-minute gift. Everyone loves movies, popcorn, and candy right? Therefore, this gift is perfect for both kids and adults and can be catered to suit anyone. Just pick out the recipients favorite drinks and snacks and voila… your gift is complete!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Plastic Storage Container or Box
- Decorative Paper Shreds (I used yellow to resemble popcorn)
- Plastic Popcorn Boxes
- Microwave Popcorn
- Bag of Peanuts
- Assorted Movie Candy (Our favorites are Junior Mints®, Milk Duds® and Swedish Fish®)
- Assorted Sodas
Pop the Popcorn, It’s Movie Time!
I filled the bottom of the box with the decorative paper shreds, affixed (taped) a “family movie night” graphic to the front of the box and then filled the box with all of the treats.
After dinner that night, I pulled out the movie night box and everyone was so excited. We had the best night together, snuggling on the couch, watching a movie and eating delicious popcorn and snacks. And the best part, every time we need a family movie night, I can pull out the box and re-stock it with our favorite movie treats!
