We missed out on Paddington the movie coming out in theaters so we could not wait until it came out on DVD. Thankfully it is NOW available for digital download! Check out the Paddington Parties website for places to order the movie as well as free downloadable games and coloring sheets!
I downloaded our movie from Amazon.com and since we have a Smart TV, we could play it right on our TV! I love movies that are family-friendly and not only is it suitable for the little nuggets but a movie my husband and I actually enjoy watching and we all enjoyed Paddington!
We invited 10 of our friends over for some yummy snacks and some movie-watching fun. Check out the recipes below that you can make for your Paddington Party!
First we have Bear Paw Cupcakes. I was sent a box of Duff’s Wild Thing cake mix and icing which was perfect for these easy cupcakes. You can find these cake mixes at your local supermarket.
Just bake the cupcakes in cupcake liners according to the box. Let them cool, then ice them. I am kind of in love with Duff’s cream cheese icing. It’s thick and creamy and tastes like homemade.
Top with Oreos and brown M&M’s for the feet. They were so easy to make that my kids helped!
I had my kids cut them out. Then we put 2 slits in them and stuck the straws through the hats. If you want them to really hold up, you can print them on cardstock.
Next up is Marmalade Peanut Butter Sandwiches. It’s basically a PB&J so you can use jelly. But we made them with marmalade to get into the Paddington festivities.
We used raisins for the eyes and nose, bananas for the ears and nose, and sprinkled a little sugar and cinnamon on top to make it look a little furry.
Last but not least was Marmalade Cinnamon rolls.
I posted my cinnamon roll recipe here. This is for pull apart bread, but for the rolls just roll the dough up instead of cutting it into squares.
For the icing, I added 4 Tbsp of Marmalade and boy were they devoured!
All 10 kids watched the movie and were glued to it which was nice since the adults got a little chatting in.
Even the youngest enjoyed the movie.
The party was a success and we all enjoyed the movie. And if you want me to be really honest, we have already watched it two more times!
Paddington will be available in stores April 28th but you can scoop it up on digital download right now! So head over here and check it out!
