What are you favorite movies that involve the sea? Come find out what ours are and see how we enjoyed watching them with this Under the Sea themed family movie night. This post contains free printables that you can use for your very own fishy family movie night.
Last week I was picking up a new Walmart Family Mobile phone and I got a sample of Swedish Fish. When I got up to the check-out I saw a big display of large bags of Swedish Fish. I picked up a few because I thought it would be fun to have a fish-themed family movie night. We decided to start with an early viewing party so we could get in all of the movies on our list and enjoy all the fun food.
I started planning the party by thinking of foods with an ocean theme. Since this was serving as dinner as well as snacking, I made sure to have a balance of foods. I used a fish cookie cutter to make fish-shaped bread for Tuna Fish sandwiches. Vegetables were dipped into Seaweed Dip, which was spinach artichoke dip. The fruit platter had grapes, Dolphin bananas, and Starfish made with watermelon and pineapple cut with star-shaped cookie cutters. Sushi was made with fig cookies, Swedish Fish, and strips of fruit leather. We drank a blue Ocean Punch that had Swedish Fish in it. While we watched our second feature we enjoyed a Fish Food sweet & sour snack mix, and then we enjoyed Fish Cakes (cupcakes) during the final movie.
Sweet & Sour Snack Movie Snack Mix
rice squares cereal
multi-grain circles cereal
1 stick of butter
2-3 teaspoons of salt
Sour Patch Kids
In a large bowl, mix the cereals and set aside.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir in the salt.
Pour the butter over the cereal mix.
Stir thoroughly to cover all the cereal mix.
Spread the snack mix out over two cookie sheets and bake in a 250-degree oven for an hour, stirring and rotating shelves every 15 minutes.
After an hour, remove the cookie sheets and let the snack mix cool.
Put the cereal mix, pretzels, Swedish Fish, and Sour Patch Kids into the large bowl.
Thoroughly stir until the snack mix is well mixed. Serve and enjoy!
