Movie Night Snack Necklaces | Mother's Day Recap

We are a movie lovin' family and one of our favorite things to do together is cuddle up and watch a movie on our nights off together. We love going to our local theater, with their cozy recliners and awesome kids meals {they actually have homemade hummus and yogurt parfaits!} and also just having movie nights at home on the couch. 
For Mother's Day this year that is exactly what I wanted- movie night with my family! We went to see Ugly Dolls which surprisingly was a great movie with a positive message and a killer soundtrack. 
My girls were singing through the whole thing and we had a blast! I decided we would make these fun Movie Night Snack Necklaces for movie night, both at home and at the theater. They are easy to make with any snack that you can string on and were a tasty treat during the show!
Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely Moms out there! 
Love this photo from Flower Vault in San Antonio of my Mom, myself, and my two daughters. 
I am truly blessed!

Mother's Day morning with my girls and all their homemade gifts. 
Ava's gift from school. I love it soooo much!
On Mother's Day this year my girls and I went on our movie date and then found a charming ramen and sushi restaurant in Springfield called Omo Japanese Soul Food. 
My little foodies loved their meal and their special green tea and mochi for dessert. 
How did I get so lucky?! 
 
After our meal we ended our eventful day with a trip to Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, which is the largest in the country! It has it's own aquarium, restaurants, photo gallery, cafes, museums, and of course, a huge store! We checked out the fish, shared a piece of fudge on the screened in patio, played in the toy section, and even took a complementary Mother's Day photo provided by the store.
Such great memories!
Ashton had to work on Mother's Day but we made sure to had a family day before. We made jewelry holders together at Michael's and had a fantastic time! Check out their weekend craft classes. 
The only cost was the 99 cent frame!

You can use any snacks you want that have holes so they can be strung on the string or yarn.

Ava, my craftiest kid, loved making her necklace and even made a pattern.
We added about 25 pieces on each. 
These would be fun for slumber parties too!
They couldn't help but snack on their necklaces to "try them out"!
All cuddled up and ready for our movie!

The many faces of Stella! I think she liked them! 
 Here's a flashback from 3 years ago (!!!). How time flies! My sweet girls love crafting and made painted pots and flower pens for Mother's Day. Check out this craft and over 60 others in my Mother's Day Kids Craft Roundup
