Pinocchio Movie Night | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

For the second movie night of 2016, we watched Pinocchio.  This movie was released in 1940 and neither of my boys had seen it before.  It was fun to see them so excited about this movie.  While they have seen the characters in the parks, they weren't familiar with the story.  There are so many great lessons in this movie!

There are lots of great foods and snacks you can make to go along with this movie.  We chose to make it VERY simple!!  We got pretzels for "Pinocchio's Nose", chocolate covered raisins for "Jiminy Crickets", and whale crackers as "Monstro."  My boys mixed up all three to make trail mix.  We looked for star shaped marshmallows to represent "When you wish upon a star" but had no luck.

Other ideas would be to serve Stromboli for dinner.  You could also use goldfish crackers for "Cleo."  Blue punch would be great as "Blue Fairy Juice."  Cotton Candy is a treat to represent Pleasure Island.  My favorite would be to use large pretzel rods and dip them in melted white chocolate and sprinkle blue sprinkles on it to be the Blue Fairy's wand.

What ideas do you have for snacks at a Pinocchio Family Movie Night?
