As you probably know by now, I love hosting family gatherings. Family time is everything to me.

I’m about to let you in on a little secret: Slumber parties with the grandkids are my favorite get-togethers of all, especially when they include our new favorite movie and Bunny Tail Popcorn.

When the grandkids come over for a slumber party, they look forward to spending quality family time together. That’s why a movie night slumber party is our favorite way to spend the evening.

Bunny Tail Popcorn and Movie Night at Home

We always grab a few of our favorites to get our slumber party started.

Your Favorite Movie

I usually let the grandkids take turns picking out their favorite movie. Then we head to Walmart to purchase everything we need for our slumber party, including the Peter Rabbit movie.

As soon as I mentioned that Peter Rabbit Blu-Ray + DVD Combo had been released, it was a no-brainer. This is one movie they all agree on!

Peter Rabbit Movie - Bunny Tail Popcorn

Peter Rabbit is a fun movie for the entire family! Whether you’re getting together for Mother’s Day or enjoying a family movie night during the week, Peter Rabbit is an awesome movie that the whole family will enjoy. I love this movie!

Favorite Dinner

Often times I cook the grandkid’s favorite meal including No-Banana Pudding. Other times we grab a premade meal so we can spend more time together. 

I always like to serve the grandkids good food that they enjoy, yet doesn’t take long to prepare. I don’t want to spend all night in the kitchen when I can be spending it with them. That’s why I depend on Kid Cuisine Meals. 

Eating Kid Cuisine Meals - Bunny Tail Popcorn

Kid Cuisine All Star Chicken Breast Nugget Meal is one meal that all the grandkids can agree upon. This meal includes a full serving of vegetables.

I don’t usually allow the grandkids to eat in the great room, but slumber parties are exceptions. I clear off the coffee table and dinner is served.

Favorite Snack – Bunny Tail Popcorn

For my family, popcorn is a requirement for movie night. Since we’re watching Peter Rabbit, I decided to make Bunny Tail Popcorn. This popcorn is easy to put together right before the movie starts.

I use my favorite Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn Movie for this simple recipe.

Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn is the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no artificial preservatives, flavors, or dyes in any of its products.

Allow the popcorn to cool slightly. Add milk chocolate candies, mini marshmallows and drizzle with white chocolate.

Walmart is always my one-stop shop when I’m planning a slumber party with the kids.

I was able to grab the newly released Peter Rabbit movie, yummy Kid Cuisine Meals, and our favorite Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn (plus add-ins) and be back home in time to enjoy a fun movie night with the grandkids.

I always let the grandkids stay up past their regular bedtime whenever we’re having a slumber party. We talk, we laugh, we play and most importantly, we make precious family memories. And that’s what family time is all about.

Have you seen the Peter Rabbit movie? It’s a favorite at my house and perfect for slumber parties.

Family movie night is a favorite, and it’s never complete without some popcorn to munch on. You’re making fabulous memories with your grandsons. I know my 2 little boys LOVE sleepover nights at their grandma’s house. #client

We love to add candy to our popcorn. We usually add milk duds or M&Ms you know those theatre box candies. My mom always takes the kids to the grocery store when they spend the night and lets them choose a dinner of their choice.

With this many options. Definitely a perfect present for my cousins over a slumber party at my Grandmother’s house. Popcorn will be a good idea over a movie marathon too.
