My #JudyMoodySleepover Movie Party

Last weekend I hosted a Judy Moody Sleepover party to celebrate the DVD release of Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. We had so much fun! I decorated the house, made dinner of pizza and hot dogs and dessert of ice cream. I made the kids each a goodie bag with a cool backpack, sleep mask, mood rings and lots of candy.

After we all ate dinner it was time to watch the movie. We were all very excited to see this movie, adults included! Having small children we all don't make it to the movies as often as we would like so watching a movie at home on DVD is perfect. Before the movie started I handed out the goodie bags and gave the activity booklet that came with the DVD to the oldest child that attend so she could count along the points that Judy was making in the movie. It was a cute idea to keep the kids and parent engaged.

The movie was cute. I think it is perfect for kids ages 7 to 11. It had kid friendly action such as Judy walking a log tight rope, Judy playing on the beach and many more fun activities that had points for the tally we were keeping. The party got a little wild at times, the kids were having a blast! There were balloon fights, dancing times and lots of candy being eaten. We had fun watching the kids feel like this was their night to be free and enjoy themselves. And if things were wild enough after the movie I decide to let them all have ice cream!!

I thought the movie was fun even for adults. Its sweet to see how Judy over comes her obstacles and ends up having a great summer! All the adults laughed when we saw Urkle was the school teacher. Of course our kids have no clue who he is but I thought it was funny. After the movie the kids got out their Halloween costumes they had purchased before arriving to the party. After a few hours of running around having fun the kids all got in their pjs, grabbed their pillow pets and happy nappers and fell fast asleep.

Overall we had a great time and it was a blast to host a movie party!
