 It is a busy time of year in our house, I am sure it is in yours too.  The hustle and bustle is real and in full effect.  Sometimes I look at my calendar and see the days of the holidays literally melting away from us and it brings me back to reality.  Makes me take a breather and plan something that makes our whole family stop, cuddle, snack and enjoy each other's company - movie night!

Even the kids sometimes need this reminder to just sit, relax, laugh and enjoy our family.  So, when I walked into the house with the newly released Minions movie they were so excited!  After a long day at work I decided that I would run by Target to pick up the Target exclusive Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD - Deluxe that was released on 12/8!  Seriously, it is the cutest case and the bonus is that this set comes with an additional 40 minutes of Target exclusive content!  Awesome - we love our Minions so any extra fun is even better!

I declared that night a Minions Movie Night and quickly got to thinking about what I could make for a fun and creative movie snack after dinner.  Then it hit me, put away the popcorn and create something Minions themed of course!

Once our movie treats were complete we were ready for a great family movie night with these adorable and tasty Minions Candy Covered Apples!  Seeing Jude and Teagan's eyes when I walked down to the family room with these adorable little Illumination Entertainment's Minions was priceless.  Taking time, even if it is just for a movie, with the family during this busy time of year is so refreshing and necessary.  Talk about a total reset of the mind!

Our Minions © 2015 Universal Studios All rights reserved impromptu family movie night was so fun. I think we need to make it a scheduled thing to do to help us all stay connected. As the kids get older, we are finding ourselves busier and busier, and not just during this busy month of December. I love coming up with creative themed movie snacks so I think I will keep doing this!  Target is the perfect one stop shop to get all of our themed family movie night necessities too!

The Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD - Deluxe is probably the coolest packaging for a DVD that we have ever bought.  Those little guys make me giggle when I see them so the shape and silly cover makes me so happy!  

Make sure you stop at Target during your last minute shopping and pick up the Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD - Deluxe. Just look for the Minions display in the store, you might find some other Minions apparel and items that will help your movie night be even more memorable.
