If you’ve got kids at home, like me, you’re probably attempting to do everything in your power to keep them safely ensconced in childhood pursuits and you will WANT to read this post Essential Family Movie Night Crafts and Treats.
More than anything I just want my daughter and son to have the opportunity to remain kids for as long as possible. In fact, I’d be thrilled if they’d take an interest in the pursuits that hearken back to the old-fashioned values of my teenhood like collecting stationary and creating perfume from flowers picked from the garden!
So, what is my grand-master plan? I am hell-bent on finding our common ground beginning with uncovering television shows and movies that my kids and I can share. Hence my post Essential Family Movie Night Crafts and Treats
So when it comes to a family night in, I could NOT BE MORE EXCITED about enjoying some cocoa and apple cider in our favorite kids and head over to their site ? ASAP TO NAB these collectible mugs for your loved ones (use the code “ZAKHoliday” to save 20 percent off your purchase until November 20th).
These Zak mugs are truly the only way to enjoy a proper cup of cocoa! Some people go all-in on the holidays, with seasonal spirit in everything from their music to their coffee.
If you’re shopping for one of those people, they’ll be delighted to find some of this collectible drinkware under the tree. Holiday movies both modern and classic—from Rudolph and Frosty to Elf and A Christmas Story—turn these sculpted mugs and decorated glasses into fun picks for anyone in the family.
And we are that family that likes to curl up and watch some family friendly fare and if it just happens to be something that will appeal to me, my 13-year-old and my 17-year-old WELL IT IS AKIN TO HITTING THE JACKPOT! And there is nothing that appeals to kids of all ages and their parents like the movie ELF!
And while we will be EATING POPCORN, and sipping hot apple cider and cocoa out of our ZAK Christmas movie mugs (all of which you can stream on Netflix too!) keep reading for a very cool craft and yummy smoothie that will help you stay busy during the holiday season aka Essential Family Movie Night Crafts and Treats.
