Alvin and the chipmunks theme


We rented the newest chipmunks movie: Chipwrecked.
We had a chicken stir fry with cashews(chipmunks love nuts) and pineapples(to incorporate the tropical island they get stranded on).
CHEESE! Cheese balls with pretzels instead of toothpicks.
Cashews to munch on during the movie.
For the chipwrecked theme I made Lifesavers! I dyed melted white chocolate red and made lines on lifesaver mints.
My favorite part of the entire themed night...ACORNS! Dark chocolate Hershey kiss, mini nutter-butter bites, and pretzel as the stem. I melted the chocolate to use as glue and stuck them in the refrigerator to set.
Obviously, they were satisfactory!
My little chipmunk ended the night with a bath to get her SQUEAKY clean. Only after we listened to chipmunk music throughout the house. Next time we do this night we will do: karaoke (possibly with a chipmunk app for our voices!), dress up as the chipmunks, and use star shape cookie cutters for sandwiches or cookies as a rockstar theme! It was a simple and fun night! Not every theme night needs a lot of work, the point is to have fun and enjoy dinner as a family = ]

HOP theme/ Easter weekend.

HOP was an adorable movie!! A new Easter tradition.

This theme we spread over the entire Easter weekend... Our drink was Trader Joe's tropical carrot juice. YUMMY!

Lala loved the bunny shaped Annie's mac & cheese.

My nails were random Easter egg print.

Pillsbury had bunny cookie dough.

Hatching deviled egg chicks. Cutting them in half tall ways worked best. The eyes are chopped olives and the beak is a piece of carrot. For delivery we brought them in an egg carton.

We made homemade croissants and dyed them orange. They were stuffed with ham and egg salad and topped with a piece of spring mix lettuce.

Scrambled birds nest breakfast. Hash browns and our favorite egg scramble.

La had a surprise egg lunch! The egg carton had all the color full plastic eggs which held different lunch items. SHE LOVED THIS PART!

Easter egg pizzas!

Trader Joe's was an awesome contributor to our Easter weekend! Bunny, egg, chick, and sheep gummies!

What's a holiday without chocolate, right??

MMMMM Peanut butter eggs = ]

Bunny, chick, and sheep finger puppets were a hit. Lala really enjoyed playing with them.
sidewalk chalk
activity books with stickers.

Using paint cards from Home Depot, I made and Easter garland. The whole week before Easter we had this shelf set up in her room and read Easter themed books.

Bunny cinnamon rolls!

What a wonderful Easter!
