Unless you have been living under a rock you have had to seen this silly character recently, no not Jude - Baymax of course!!  Baymax is one of the characters from the new Disney movie Big Hero 6 that was just released on DVD.  Pretty cute right?  Not only is Baymax a really fun character but this movie is REALLY good, seriously!  We took Jude to see this movie in the theater and left the show saying it was one of the best Disney movies we had seen in a long time.  The characters are great, the story-line is heartfelt and full of teachable moments and the humor is great for all ages.  On point Disney!

To celebrate this great movie coming out on DVD we decided to have a Big Hero 6 family party and movie night!  Jude had already gotten a few Big Hero 6 toys for Christmas this year but I wanted to surprise the kids with the new release as well as some fun movie night cuddle buddies!  I found these adorable plush characters on Walmart.com and had them shipped right to us so we were ready for our weekend fun!  I stopped at Walmart on my way to work the morning the movie was released to be THAT mom!  Walmart had a great deal too - A Walmart exclusive 2 DISC Disc Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy 2 pack plus your purchase of the Big Hero 6 Blu-Ray/DVD + Gift With Purchase Set includes a digital movie on Vudu while supplies last! Simply scan your receipt using the Savings Catcher in the Walmart app. Then look for a message on your phone or email. Now you can watch Big Hero 6 on any device!  We waited to surprise the kids with the movie this weekend.  I know, I really was THAT mom!  But we had such a fun Saturday filled with Big Hero 6 fun!  We were super busy but the kids have not stopped talking about our fun Big Hero 6 celebration!

Baymax Stained Glass


The first thing we did was make a fun craft that has totally made our front window fun!  I am a fan of stained glass crafts for kids, they allow the kids to be creative but it is simple enough to complete too.  Our Baymax stained glass is my favorite stained glass we have made so far!  So cute!!

To continue our family night celebration of Big Hero 6 we had to make snacks!!  Jude adored Baymax but his other favorite character of the Big Hero 6 team is Honey Lemon.  He loves the science of her powers so we decided to make a special drink to enjoy with our movie.  PS - it is relatively healthy and the kids totally thought it tasted like an ice cream treat - MOM FOR THE WIN!!!

This is a picture of a VERY happy boy.  Check out his shirt - Mr. Baymax is hiding.  I feel like our house is the Big Hero 6 house - so many toys, crafts, treats and books all about this movie.  

Next on my to do list for our Big Hero 6 celebration before we sat down to watch the movie was to make our movie snack.  I am so thrilled with how these turned out and man they were a hit with Jude and Teagan! Oh and I promise, these really are easier than they look - you know I love easy recipes!

Ingredients:

6-8 Apples - the rounder the better, we used Gala, they were really round and we LOVE Gala apples
1 large brick of white chocolate almond bark
Candy sticks
Black piping icing 
foil or parchment paper

Directions:

1.  Clean and DRY the apples.  Dry is key here.  If any moisture gets to the melted almond bark it will make this process a lot harder.  

2.  Stick the candy sticks in the apples.  Tip - using a sharp knife, carefully poke a hole in the middle of the apple, then place the candy stick into the apple.

3.  In a microwave safe bowl, that is deep enough to cover the apples, melt the almond bark.

What a fun way to start our movie night as a family.  Teagan was so excited to finally see this movie since she didn't go with us to the theater and with the fun craft, drink and snack I think she will always love this movie.  I was so happy with the memories we made while enjoying a great Saturday night at home.  


Make sure you stop at Walmart soon and pick up the Walmart Exclusive Gift Set.  You will love the Science of Big Hero 6 as well!  Also, I really hope you check out the online items you can find from Big Hero 6 at Walmart.com, I was amazed at the items that were available online that are not found in stores!  Jude and Teagan have been taking turns on who gets to sleep with Honey Lemon and Baymax every night.  So cute!  I am glad I found these cute plush characters for the kids.  They have cuddled with them every time we have watched the movie!


Who is your favorite character of Big Hero 6?
