Since Tom and I are huge film nerds, the Oscars are pretty much our Super Bowl. Every year since 2005, I’ve put together a dinner based on the nominees. It is pure geeky fun!
|2005 Academy Award Party – Woohoo!|
This year, I wanted the kids to be able to get in on the fun. So our dinner focused on the Best Animated Feature nominees!
|Not actually the Scottish recipe, but tasty!|

|Green Frosting and Lifesavers = zombies|
|Leftover Valentine’s Day Candy – Spice Drops, Lifesavers, Pixy Stix|
I printed out the movie posters on 5×7 paper and stuck them in frames as table decor. I should have been doing this all along! I also printed out some coloring and activity pages based on the movies.
Scarlett is loving the photo props. Luke is not a fan of getting his pictures taken, but I got one smile out of him.
While the award show itself turned out to be not very kid-friendly, it worked out because the kids fell asleep right after the red carpet show.
