Back-to-School Family Movie Night

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Snyder’s-Lance, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Pop4Captain http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Hello there makers! We have had such a busy first week back to school, how about you? I thought we would celebrate the completion of the first week with a Back-to-School Family Movie Night, complete with fun snacks and some simple decorations. With the pre-order of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, we can hardly wait to get our movie watching on!

We are all so excited for the new Captain Underpants movie DVD release. Not only is it the perfect movie for family movie night, but two of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart and Ed Helms, are the voices of the main characters.

So we decided to theme our family movie night Captain Underpants style, complete with red caps and white underpants. 

We decorated the kitchen table with red pompoms, a table cloth, some white paper clouds, and a couple of fun signs. We also picked up a couple of our favorite movie snacks, Pop Secret popcorn and Lance cracker sandwiches. 

I made red paper capes and white paper underpants and glued them onto small paper bags to hold the Pop Secret popcorn. They were really simple to make and turned out so cute.

We love Pop Secret because it’s a delicious, high-quality snack that people can feel good about sharing with their family… not to mention the great butter taste! Yum! What’s family movie night without the popcorn?!

Lance crackers are one of our go-to snacks.  They have been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. Two of my favorites are Peanut Butter Honey and Grilled Cheese! With real peanut butter or real cheese between crispy baked crackers, up to 5 grams of protein, and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance provides a variety of sandwich crackers that are a tasty and satisfying snack solution for your family’s busiest school days. 

To make these crackers even more fun, I added salami capes and pepper jack cheese underpants! They made my daughter giggle quite a bit and they tasted great… mission accomplished. 

After a long week, cuddling up with my favorite snacks and favorite people to watch a fun family movie is just what we needed. 

Want to have your own back-to-school family movie night, too? You certainly can! We bought our Pop Secret popcorn and Lance crackers at Walmart. Plus, the Captain Underpants DVD is will be available in Walmart stores 9/12! Be sure to reserve your copy now by pre-ordering today! While supplies last.

How do you celebrate the first week back to school? Does your family like movie nights? I’d love to hear about it!

College Bathroom Tote Gift

It’s here, friends! Back-to-school season is upon us and we are ready for it! This year I have a niece who is getting ready to head off to college, and I couldn’t be more excited for her. I have the best memories from my college days and living in the dorms with friends. Going off to college, you feel so bold and confident… ready to take on the world! I wanted to do a little something to congratulate my niece and show her just how excited I am for her new adventure, so I made her a College Bathroom Tote gift with all the essentials she’ll need. 

To make the perfect college bathroom tote gift for your college student, you’ll need:

  • basket or tote
  • hand towel
  • sponge or lofa 
  • razors
  • toothbrush with holder and toothpaste
  • shampoo/conditioner
  • body wash
  • LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE FRESH MINT and/or LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO ALCOHOL FRESH MINT
  • ribbon

Now all you have to do is put everything into the tote or basket. Make sure you make it look pretty!

Can’t go into college with bad breath! I love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE because it has 6 benefits in one, including helping prevent cavities, killing bad breath germs, cleaning your whole mouth, freshening breath, etc. Plus it’s from the #1 Dentist Recommended Mouthwash Brand!

Once everything is inside of your tote, tie a cute ribbon around it to finish it off.

I also love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO ALCOHOL because the zero-alcohol formula cleans deep to kill millions of bad breath germs for a healthier mouth, with a milder taste. So if you aren’t a fan of a strong minty flavor, this is the mouthwash for you.

Right now if you buy 3, you get a $5 Target Gift Card! The offer is good (6/29-9/9) and is valid online and in store. Who doesn’t want a $5 gift card to Target?! You can even put that into your College Bathroom Tote gift! To make it even easier, you can hover over the image below to shop!

This gift tote is so simple to make, and I just know your college student will be grateful for a gift that they will actually put to use on a regular basis! Help prepare your college student to Go Bold with LISTERINE®!
