My mom is coming to visit in only four days and the kids are on pins and needles to see her! Trying to do school lessons has been pretty pointless, as no one (including me) can focus. So, to help pass the time, we planned a Marvel superheroes cartoon party, complete with a fun movie night snack. I love making these sweet and crunchy snack mixes with M&M's® because the kids can eat them in the living room without making a chocolatey mess!
These sillies were all set to watch an "old" Spiderman cartoon, featuring Captain America. To clarify, "old" was early 90s. Yeah. Moving on now...
Captain America is a family favorite and, since the kids aren't quite old enough for the movie version yet, we like to watch him on cartoon. Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be coming out on September 9th and M&M's are the perfect movie snack. In fact, there's a new site, HeroesEatMMs.com, that features special coupons, games and a contest with a chance to win one of 10 $100 Walmart gift cards. See the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of this post to enter to win!
I shopped for M&M's and all my other snack mix supplies at Walmart. The left portion of this shot is almost all M&Ms! There's a bunch of varieties. I'm really looking forward to buying the fall-themed ones too. Don't forget to grab your coupon when you shop!
For this snack mix, I added graham cereal, marshmallows, and honey-roasted peanuts to the M&Ms. All together, they make a sort of peanut butter s'mores taste. Yummy, crunchy, sweetness!
Selah helped me put together the mix and hand it out. Here she is showing her Captain America spirit with appropriate color scheme. Ha!
Melts in your mouth, not in your hand, right? Kynthia loves having her snack in the living room with the big kids, and I love it that we don't have a sticky mess to clean up!
The kids all sat together sweet like this for about 15 minutes. Then the babies were done and wanted to play! Oh well...we make the most of it when we can!
When you visit the new social hub, HeroesEatMMs.com, make sure to check out the fun quizzes like, “Which MARVEL® Super Here Are You?” and “Which M&M’s® Character Are You?”.
In the meantime, make yourself some snack mix and pop in a great movie. Do you have a fun way to change it up and make it unique to you?
