Family movie nights are one of my daughters favorite parts of the weekend. Each week we draw a family member’s name out of a hat and that person gets to plan a night of fun (food, games, movie, etc.). With the recent release of the animated film Finding Dory, I planned a fun night this week themed around the cute new movie.


The essentials to any fun family movie night are tickets, pizza and popcorn but this movie night was made extra special by incorporating all things fish! To start, I made special Finding Dory tickets so my three girls could have VIP access to the movie premiere. To make the movie tickets I cut blue construction paper into long rectangles to form the ticket. I then cut orange paper into fish and wrote all the movie info on this portion. I used squiggle cut scissors to form the top tear off  “Admit One” portion. My daughters then got involved in the fun by decorating each ticket with Finding Dory stickers.

Next up was pizza! I made homemade dough (I love this recipe) and then formed it into a fish shape. This can be done easily by pressing the dough into a long oval shape and then pinching the ends together to form a tail. I topped the pizza with olives (for the eye) and yellow peppers for the fish scales.


Once we finished dinner, it was time to make popcorn mix then head to the movie! For the popcorn mix, I set out tasty add-ins for each of us to make our own delicious mixtures! Naturally colored chocolate candies, raisins, and of course organic fish crackers made these mixes the perfect snacking combination during the movie.


With tickets and popcorn in hand my daughters headed over to their ticket collector daddy. Dimmed lights, comfy blankets, the new Kleenex® Finding Dory Tissue Box Designs greeted them to the “theater”.  These absorbent tissues are the perfect complement to any movie night with their soft, strong, and durable 2-ply thickness which is great for any unexpected messes. Disney® Finding Dory Tissue Box Designs are available for a limited time at BJ’s Wholesale Club. My girls had a great time at our Finding Dory movie night and have a new favorite movie!

    The movie tickets are super cute but I love the idea of making the pizza coordinate with the movie! I have never thought about this idea. Thanks for the tip.
