We’ve had a couple of family movie nights recently with getting prepared to go back to Disneyland. One of our favourite movies from Disney to watch on Netflix is Tangled. It’s a movie that we can watch on repeat if need be… which seems to be what often happens when a preschooler decides they like something.
The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
It’s a movie that is filled with adventure, romance, and a little hint of being a musical. You’ve got Flynn Rider who is the kingdom’s most wanted bandit who ends up hiding out in a tower. In the tower is Rapunzel who has lived there for years. With her cascading blonde hair and the help of a frying pan she captures the bandit but ends up striking a deal with him to get to go see the floating lights that appear every year on her birthday. Of they go on an adventure that will change Rapunzel and Flynn’s lives. Remember, I did say romance.
To make watching Tangled a bit more special I gave my daughter a manicure and pedicure. She picked out the perfect shade of purple/pink and some sparkle polish too. She was thrilled to have her nails painted like her mommy normally has hers. Can you spot the mini Mickey Mouse on her fingernail?
We also made some paper crowns together. Who else remembers making paper crowns all the time as a little kid? It was a quick and easy little craft to do and lots of fun for my preschooler to get to design and colour on her own. From the moment I pulled out the craft paper, she started asking me what we were going to make.
I also whipped up a quick Tangled theme snack to enjoy. All that was needed was some popcorn, white chocolate, yellow Reese’s pieces candies, and food colouring.
I made up some air popped popcorn and spread it out on a cookie sheet. I then melted the white chocolate chips and then added food colouring to make it purple. Drizzling the chocolate all over the popcorn I also sprinkled on the candies. This was left to set for a few minutes then served in a cast iron frying pan for an extra Tangled touch.
Making family movie night a little extra special was incredibly easy and a highlight for my preschooler. We will definitely be having another themed movie night again soon.We would love to have you follow us on social media, find us here:
