A Paddington Movie Night Party

*Thanks to BSM Media and Starz for providing a digital movie download and party kit for our fun Paddington movie night!

 Paddington may have traveled from darkest Peru to the hustle and bustle of London, but you can join in on his adventures right from your living room starting tonight with a Paddington Party!  April 17th was the first day the Paddington Movie was available for download and we planned a movie night to celebrate. 

Paddington Movie

This week had been pretty busy with my husband traveling and with him still being away I hadn’t had much time to plan. Luckily for me, PaddingtonParties.com & MyPrintly.com had a ton of resources to help me to throw everything together for our fun family time. It was fantastic to have a extra special event with my family that allowed me to enjoy the moments with them.

If your family  Friday nights are anything like ours, we like to keep them simple, fun, and relaxing. Dinner called for pizza delivery. Somehow this always feels special to the kiddos. While we waited, I printed up some fun word searches.

I also instructed everyone to bring out their favorite teddy bear for our movie night. They were a little curious about what they would be doing with their own bear but I assured them it would be staying with them. We read a short book to introduce them to Paddington’s story. I loved Paddington as a child and even my baby book was Paddington Bear themed. I always thought it was unique theme and enjoyed sharing that part of my story with them before we watched the movie together.

I had printed a sheet of simple gift tags ahead of time and attached a bit of string to them. Then I had the kids write the famous Paddington phrase “Please Look after this Bear. Thank You” on each of their tags.

They had a lot of fun with that activity and I think it made it very sentimental for them even the older kids, remembering how special their bears from childhood were to them.

Snacks for movie night were simple and fun too. Popcorn and Cinnamon Teddy Grahams presented with flare.

The girls also whipped up some delicious cupcakes for an intermission treat. That’s one great thing about at-home movie parties- you can pause halfway through for refreshments and potty breaks for everyone.

The Paddington movie was both entertaining and heartwarming for the various age ranges in our family. From our oldest teenagers to our youngest in elementary, everyone sat together through the entire movie. I still missed Randy being away but having the majority of the family together on one sofa made my heart full. I highly recommend you download the movie today and watch with your family. It is one I anticipate to be requested for future movie nights.

Here’s a peek at the trailer:

A couple of days after our party, I printed up our party selfie with our bears and added Paddington into the shot too. I wrote a little Thank You on the picture with each of the kids favorite movie quote and placed them on their pillows before they got home from school. They LOVED that.  Sometimes it really is doing something that surprises them that gives the biggest delight in their day. I just always want them to know how special and loved they are.
