What do you do when work and school are closed thanks to Cyclone Debbie? You have a fun, family movie day, of course!!
I was so grateful to have the new SING DVD in my hot little hands last Thursday when I found out we were in for some wild weather and house-bound for the day.
It doesn’t take long for the girls to get cabin fever, so we set to work creating some super yummy SING-inspired snacks to make our movie session extra special. You all know baking and cooking aren’t my strong points, but I was SO pleased with how our movie snacks turned out. Check them out for a fun SING movie session of your own.
SING microphone cake pops
Dave had a brilliant idea to make choc tops that looked like microphones. I quickly found out this was easier said than done. Creating the choc top look was a full on nightmare. The choc ice magic wasn’t setting, the ice cream was melting, and it looked like a drippy mess. A delicious, drippy mess that Miss Six couldn’t wait to get her hands on!
I did some research and discovered that microphone cake pops would be a much easier idea. Microphone cake pops are simple to make. Trust me, if I can do it, you can too.
All you need to do is set up a muffin tray with patty cake cases, whip up some cake mix, and place the mixture into the patty cases. You then place an ice cream cone upside down in the patty cases on top of the mixture and pop them into the oven for approximately 20 minutes.
Once they’ve cooled, pop off the case, and you have the makings of a very tasty microphone. We decorated ours with vanilla icing and a mixture of silver cachous and gold and silver sprinkles. The kids loved them.
Music sheet popcorn
You can’t have a movie night without popcorn, am I right?! I printed off some music sheets and made them into a paper cone to hold our popcorn. Super easy and the kids thought it was cool. They didn’t let me throw out the cones after they were done. They now want to eat popcorn that way all the time!
Rosita and Gunter bacon and egg quiches
Mini bacon and egg quiches are the perfect size for little hands and hungry tummies. The only complaint the girls had was Daddy trying to eat them all.
The movie revolves around eternally optimistic koala Buster Moon, who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theatre. Think The Voice, but for animals of all shapes, sizes and personalities. The audition scene is fun to watch – Miss Four laughed her head off at the bull with a farting problem.
SING promises plenty of laughs and will pull on your heartstrings. You can’t help but root for Buster. The best thing about the movie though is the music. Dave was tapping his feet and the girls were clapping their hands, and I couldn’t help but get up for a boogie. The kids weren’t impressed – geez mum, so embarrassing!
The kids were on a high after the movie. Miss Six spent the rest of the afternoon pretending she was punk rock porcupine, Ash, singing, ‘Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here’s my number, so call me maybe!’ Lucky all of the songs are super catchy.
