It’s not often that I find myself completely alone in Walmart. No kids, no husband and no one else on the cereal aisle. For 10 AM on a Saturday, I was a little surprised. I’m not complaining though… it was bliss being able to stand in the cereal aisle alone and take my time picking the perfect #goodnightsnack for our family movie night. With so many choices, choosing just one seemed silly, so I decided we would set up a movie snack bar and mix it up with all of our favorites.
There’s nothing quite like watching a movie in a dark theater. During the winter, waiting until after dark to start our movies at home and create that “movie theater” feel is easy. In the summer, not so much. July in the South means it’s 9 PM of after before it’s truly dark in any room inside our house… but it’s always dark in the garage! A dark room, a good night snack and the movie of your choice are all you need for an epic family movie night.
With electronics being lighter and more portable, bringing a TV and DVD player into the garage was easy peasy! With the lights off, it was totally dark and the perfect spot for movie watching. Bonus: The acoustics are great too!
Before starting our movie, we set up a fun fabulous snack bar with all of our favorite Kellogg’s cereals. Cereal gets chucked into the “breakfast food” category far too often, but I am a 24 hour a day cereal lover and will easily chose it for lunch, dinner or snacks over most other choices. My daughter’s first choice for “make your own dinner” nights is cereal – and not because it’s the only thing she can make, but because she loves it that much! Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a good night snack, you’ll see us all reaching for Kellogg’s cereal!
Setting up on own theater at home also meant that we could watch movies in our PJs! Even Fenway enjoyed hanging out with us in the garage for Family Movie Night. Yes, he also enjoyed the cereal snack bar (no Krave S’mores though.) He was happy with his good night snack.
