Finding Nemo Family Movie Night

For this months Frugal Family Fun Activity, I set up a fun movie night. 
The Butterballs are crazy about all things ocean right now so 'Finding Nemo' was the best option.

Our dinner menu also had an Ocean theme and I had fun making cute, simple name cards for each dish.

On the menu:  * Octo-Dogs on a bed of shell pasta
                      * DIY Sub - Submarines
                      * Simply Sweet Crab for pudding
                      * East Australian Current Juice

The Octo-Dogs were simply Hotdogs cut to look like an octopus. 
The features were drawn with a toothpick dipped in ketchup. 

For the Subs, I laid out 2 french loaves along with a selection of yummy fillings:
Sauteed red, green and yellow peppers,
caramalised onions,
fried bacon bits,
grilled chicken strips,
 a pat of garlic-and-parsley butter,
and of course loads of cheese

My expert chefs donned their chef-hats and set to work with such seriousness,
 you would have thought that they were contestants on MasterChef !!

While the subs sat under the grill, we all played a game of Shark-Tag.

Dinner time!!
 The Butterballs loved the cute Octo-dogs 
and the Subs were delicious.

We drank East Australian Current Juice.
Dessert was more like a sweet, healthy snack.

The crab's body was made by cutting a slice of bread with a round cookie cutter and smothering it in strawberry jam. 
The eyes were smaller circles of bread 
with a chocolate-drop in the center to form the pupil.
The little smiley mouth was made using chocolate-drops as well.
The pincers and legs were simply slices of apple.
Yummy and healthy!!!

We all cuddled up on the sofa with loads of buttery popcorn 
and watched 'Finding Nemo'

The Butterballs loved their Nemo Themed night. 
Tamlyn is already planning a Barbie themed Family Night for tomorrow ;)))
