I was not lucky enough to see the movie HOME when it was in the theater (though the rest of my family did). However, in saying that I was very excited to see the movie, as I loved the actors who were selected in the movie and my family all raved about how funny the movie was and how I HAD to see it. That being said I was excited to be asked to have a viewing party with my family to have some fun together and get into the movie action, and I wanted to share our experience with you!
I was sent all of the above items (and more) to create the Best Family Movie Night Ever. I decided to make this a surprise, as the kids always love it when I throw something fun their way. I was particularly intrigued by the slushie makers as you do not even need to have an actual machine with these, only your freezer. If these work, I know that they will be a BIG hit!
I set up the night and sprung the movie night on the kids and they were ecstatic. We decided to have it in the evening so it was jammy time and then we got out our supplies. In making the slushies, I can tell you the slushie makers were simple to use and I am very interested to try out making milkshakes next time (among other things too)!
As part of the fun the kids also received some light up headbands which allowed them to become a Boov themselves. They loved these too. The ears on the headband changed colors constantly and the loved seeing what colors would come next. We found ourselves talking about what it would be like if our bodies changed colors when we were experiencing different emotions like the Boov did.
Snuggling down to the movie I can tell you that we had a blast. Not only because our movie night was an epic one, but because we spent it together as a family.
As someone that had not seen the movie, I found it to be a ton of fun. There were some great lines and O’s character reminded me so much of Sheldon, but that could also be the actor himself. That being said, the movie was not bound by the talent though. The message in the movie itself was so important to share. Too often we forget the importance of family and spending quality time like this together. This movie reminded us that we have to cherish our friends and family and be there for them no matter what, and we cannot simply back down and run away when things get hard or scary – great lessons to learn for all of us!
