DIY Backyard Movie Night Snacks

Our backyard movie night series continues! In our previous posts we shared  How to Host a Backyard Movie Night, how to convert your Springfree Trampoline into a DIY Movie Screen and how to set up Movie Night Décor and Seating.  We’ve saved the best post for last! No movie night would be complete without drinks and snacks and we thought we’d share our favourite - kid approved snack recipes.

Popcorn Bar

Everyone loves popcorn! And a popcorn bar takes popcorn to an entirely new level. Customizing your toppings and flavours is a great way to engage little ones. We chose to go with three different kinds of popcorn including plain, buttered and sweet caramel corn and let the guests scoop what they wanted into popcorn bags. We made little shakers with different toppings such as cinnamon, Mexican and white cheddar. But there are a lot of flavors to choose from.  We even included some other fun toppings too!

Our favourites list includes:

  • Gummy bears and worms
  • M&Ms
  • Smarties
  • Mini peanut butter cups
  • Chocolate chips
  • Nerds candy
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Peanuts  

We suggest a stop at your local bulk food store. Serve your delicious finds in little bowls or containers and assemble them next to the popcorn. Add a few spoons or scoopers and you’re ready to serve!  Sit back and enjoy the movie with your family and friends. Remember to have fun and share your Backyard Movie Night with us using #springfree!
