Disclosure: I received Cars 3 gifts and Juicy Juice coupons for this review. All opinions are my own.
Get ready for a blazing good time! Disney•Pixar’s Cars 3 animated film is roaring into theaters on June 16. In this much-anticipated sequel, a new generation of blazing race cars and evil nemesis enter the story.
To gear up for this upcoming release, our family planned a family movie night. We chose the previous sequel, Cars 2, as our movie night pick since we had yet to view it. This would be my toddler’s first movie night as she typically goes to bed pretty early. As such, she was very excited to be part of the special activities with her big sister and parents.
To help make our family movie night more fun, Juicy Juice provided a “Countdown to Cars 3 Kit” filled with limited-edition Cars 3-themed Juicy Juice products. We’re big fans of Juicy Juice as my girls love drinking these beverages. I love that they’re made of 100% juice. Combining Cars 3 with Juicy Juice just makes everything all that much more fun!
First, we “decorated” the kids’ arms and legs with with Cars 3 tattoos. They loved putting on tattoos of Lighting McQueen and his friends.
To celebrate the race car theme of the night, we baked traffic light brownies. They were so easy to make. We simply used store-bought brownie mix and then added red, yellow, and green M&Ms.
After baking the brownies, I cut them into rectangular shapes to make them look like traffic lights.
The kids loved wearing their new Cars 3 red visors. They wore them during dinner, too. Each child picked out the Cars 3-themed Juicy Juice box they wanted to drink.
It wouldn’t be family movie night without pizza. So we has some delivered…a special treat for the kids (and for me since I didn’t have to cook).
For dessert, we ate the traffic light brownies which were delicious. I also surprised the kids with “tire donuts.” Using mini chocolate donuts from the grocery store, I stacked them up by placing a chopstick vertically onto the plate. I then decorated the plate with a few loose “tires.”
A big tub of buttered popcorn is another must-have for family movie night. I just microwaved a few bags of popcorn, dumped them into a huge popcorn container, and we were ready.
We started watching the movie, and the film was pretty engrossing with lots of action and plot twists.
Everyone was able to stay awake for the whole movie. Our family movie night was a success. Thank you to Juicy Juice for making our family movie night extra special!
