Incredibles

Movie - The Incredibles

Menu - SuperHeroes (hero sandwiches)
Chips & Incredible dip
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-P...ip/Detail.aspx
Frozone's Family Sundae (get your biggest dish, your family's favorite flavors, and toppings galore, and dig in together. Don't forget the cherries!)

Activities - Create your own Super Hero identity. Each person creates their own super hero persona complete with outfits and accessories using stuff you find around your home. Don't forget to share what your super power is!

M Eye

Movie - Monsters, Inc.

Menu - Boo's Baby Meatloaves (make a full recipe of meatloaf, make them individual-sized by baking them in cupcake tins)
Mike's Monster Mash Potatoes
SullySauce (add blue food coloring to applesauce)

Activities - Bake a batch of Door cookies! Roll out sugar cookie dough, cut into small rectangles. Use a toothpick to make details (6 panel doors, woodgrain design) and bake. Use gel icing and edible decorations to decorate your doors!
Design your own monster! Everyone gets a sheet of paper and crayons. Using a game dice, name a body part (head, arms, legs, eyes, nose, etc.) and whatever number you roll, you have to add that many of that body part to your monster. For example, your monster may end up having 5 eyes, 2 noses, 3 ears, and 6 arms with 1 leg!

Ratatouille

Movie - Ratatouille

Menu - Remy's Ratatouille
http://www.cookingforengineers.com/r...27/Ratatouille
Collete's Baguettes (store-bought)
Ego's Favorite Chocolate Souffle
http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1913...255204,00.html

Activities - Recipe books! Option 1: Have children make up their own recipes including ingredients, directions, and an illustration of each dish.
Option 2: Make a family favorites recipe book. Hand-write or word process menus and have kids illustrate each recipe. Bind with beautiful ribbon for a family keepsake. Each family member chooses at least one of his or her favorite recipes to include, and make sure to note whose pick it is. Also, you may add any family memories connected to each memory, or perhaps a journaling on why each recipe was chosen.

Bug's Life

Movie - A Bug's Life
When I think of ants, I think of picnics! Have an indoor picnic on the floor complete with your picnic basket, blanket, and thermos of lemonade! Especially fun in the winter (for those of us getting 11" of snow tonight!)

Menu - Flik's Fried Chicken
Princess Atta's Potato Salad
Heimlich's Deviled Eggs
Dot's Dirt Dessert (use any container, I like to use a washed clay planting pot with a small circle of wax paper at the bottom. Choose any flavor of ice cream, let soften. When soft and easy to scoop, fill pots 2/3 way full with ice cream. Place in freezer until ice cream is firm. In the meantime, grind/foodprocess/smash the chocolate wafers of Oreos or generic chocolate creme cookies to look like dirt. Place "dirt" on top of ice cream, and place gummy worms coming out of the ground. Finishing touch is a flower made out of construction paper petals and a plastic straw stem.)

Activities - Make bug masks out of paper plates (pompoms, stickers, pipecleaners for antannae)
Build a bug house and go on a bug safari! You will need an oatmeal canister, fine mesh screening, a craft knife, and duct tape. Use the craft knife to cut out a large rectangle from the oatmeal canister. Place mesh screening inside and secure with duct tape. Decorate your bug house with paper, bug stickers, and paint! Don't forget some fresh grass for your bug pals to eat and play on.

PrincessTigerLily,
Thanks for asking about the Memphis area. I live about 10 minutes from the Mall that was destroyed. Luckily, the only thing that happened at my house is our grill was overturned twice. My kids enjoyed hanging out in the bathroom-they thought it was an adventure. We watched Disney movies on their portable dvd player. None of my family or friends were hurt. Arlington had some messed up homes though. I hope your aunt is ok.

Back to the topic at hand. I need to come up with some ideas for this thread-I was a teacher before a SAHM-so this kind of thing is right up my alley.

Movie: Meet the Robinsons

Meal:
-Spaghetti and Meatballs (like they serve in the film)
-PB&J (maybe in cookie form? Lewis invents a PB&J machine)

or you could do baseball food like hot dogs/popcorn/nachos because "Goob" plays baseball for the Dinos!

Activity:
-Create your own invention with things around the house (Lewis invents)
-Play indoor baseball (use your hand for a bat and crumpled paper for the ball)
-Make hat cookies (Doris is a "helping hat")
-Make your own TodayLand out of containers and blocks

TigerCheer2009, great ideas for Meet the Robinsons! I can't believe this, but we still haven't seen it yet. Do you think DD6 and DS2.5 (who typically love all things Disney) would like this one?

I am so glad to hear that people are enjoying these! Bring on those creative ideas everybody!

I think they would! I know that I did-you will probably want to watch it with them regardless because it may raise some questions about adoption because *spoiler* Lewis' mom leaves him at the orphanage and he has a bit of a rough time finding his niche.

It's a great family film (and my new favorite!)

PiperPizzaz, I think that's a great idea. I'd be happy make a list, as long as somebody tells me how! I have Dis-ing a while, but I still only know the bare essentials of posting! Is there a way to make a new first post to list the themes on?

Dinosaur

Movie - Dinosaur

Menu - Hot lava and Rocks (chili and corn bread)
Herbivore Salad
Aladar's cookies (use a dino-shaped cookie cutter and decorate with icing)

Activities - Make a volcano! Don't forget the plastic dinos around the base.
http://chemistry.about.com/cs/howtos...ldavolcano.htm

Cool dino craft ideas (edible dino nest w/jellybean eggs, dino dig, etc.)
http://www.freekidcrafts.com/dinosaurs.html

Make dino eggs that crack open to reveal a surprise inside! Follow directions from Family Fun magazine, but shape dough into egg
shapes.

I think there is a way to link to a post number but, I don't know how.
Anyone?


Also, how about 'Cars'? That seems a challenging one. All I could think of was eating off hubcaps but, who has extra (clean) hubcaps lying around.

I am going to try and think up some that aren't exactly movies too. Maybe rides or more general themes.

I should go back but, whoever did the party with the MNSSHP was fabulous! Ok found it, MeMom. Those are fantastic!!! I want to go party at your house!
