Movie Night musts
We LOVE family movie night. We typically gather and watch a movie together once a week, usually on Sunday.
Snacks and treats are a movie night must! While we love to make homemade popcorn, it’s fun to have a variety of munchies. Some of those munchies are great for mixing into popcorn!
The kids love our Movie Night Charcuterie Board. It’s customizable and can include a good mix of our favorites. You can include your favorite candy and fruit, or even bake up some brownies and cookies to include.
Movie Night Snack Board
For the base, you can use pretty much anything you have, as long as it is big. Some of our favorite charcuterie board bases:
- large cutting boards – I especially like the look of wooden cutting boards
- large platter – festive holiday ones can often be found at the dollar store
- large serving trays
- large baking sheet
How to make a movie night charcuterie board
BOWLS. To make the board, first place your bowls or small containers, spaced apart. Then build around the containers with items. Bowls are helpful for dips or spreads but can hold any item you wish.
FILL IT IN. Next, begin to add items to the board in groupings. Keep in mind color to spread the color around.
You can make the board any way you like! Just have fun!
You can also throw in some of our favorite homemade mixes:
Favorite movie snacks
Candy. M&M, Skittles, Twizzles, Lifesaver Gummies, chocolate candies, caramels, Airheads, Hershey Kisses, Mike and Ikes, Reeses Cups, and Junior Mints
Healthy items. grapes, olives, blueberries, halved strawberries, raspberries, mozzarella or cheddar cheese sticks, trail mix, lightly buttered popcorn, and nuts
A few tips
Crunch. No one wants their movie interrupted because the person next to them is eating something loud and crunchy. Unfortunately, or fortunately, this eliminates most raw veggies.
Keep the room clean. Because of Murphy’s law, you’ll also want to avoid providing anything that is gooey or drippy. If it can make a mess, it will make a mess.
Serving suggestion. To avoid different hands reaching out every 5 seconds for a yummy treat, provide individual plates or small bowls for people to fill up and hold in their laps. They can quietly refill every so often.
