Family Activities at Home

We’ve started a new tradition at our house – Disney Family Fun Night!

We’ve always been big on having quality family time, but we decided to draw on our love of all things Disney and make some really fun memorable times together. We do Family Fun Night weekly, but once a month it will be Disney Family Fun Night!

I put tickets on their breakfast plates – they were so excited and couldn’t wait to find out what it was all about!

Disney Movie Night

Tonights pick is Disney’s super hero movie The Incredibles or Incredibles 2 if you prefer. Kids love that this animated family movie has characters that appeal to both young kids, teens, boys, and girls – and all in a family friendly movie! So before we turn out the lights and snuggle up on the couch, we started our friday (or Saturday) night activities like this:

Incredibles Family Fun Night Activity

Family Fun Night

We became Superheroes! Everyone created their own or picked out a costume from our dress up clothes. Once they had a their super hero look they shared their superhero name, and super power. The kids LOVED this part!

You could always have kids write down their super hero name and power, put them all in a hat, and see if your family members can guess who is who!

The movie is filled with the following super heroes (just in case you are unfamiliar)

  • Mr. Incredible – super strong
  • Elastigirl (or Mrs. Incredible) can stretch really far… arms, legs – you name it
  • Dash – can run really fast
  • Violet – can render herself invisible or generate force fields
  • Jack Jack – shape-shifting, but he also has a large number of other powers
  • Frozone – ice powers

Incredibles Pie

I created this main dish pie for our disney activity not so much because the food itself reminded me of the movie, but because I could make the really cool “i” very prominent. It looked super cool and tasted out-of-this-world delicious. This mexi inspired dish is a satisfying comfort food for sure.  It has a cornmeal (think polenta) crust with ground beef seasoned with chili topping. It is a yummy, hardy, hit-the-spot kind of meal.

Incredible Pie Recipe

Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. We use grass fed and finished beef.

Incredible Pie Recipe

Add 1 large diced onion and 1 and a 1/2 cup diced tomatoes to the browned ground beef. Continue cooking over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

Incredible Pie Recipe

Add the following seasoning to the ground beef mixture: 2 tablespoons chili powder and 1 teas salt. Simmer 10 minutes to blend flavor.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 F and mix together the “crust” in a bowl:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon melted butter (we use organic salted)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Incredible Pie Recipe

Press the cornmeal mixture into the bottom of an ungreased pie plate.

Incredible Pie Recipe

Spoon the meat mixture evenly over your cornmeal crust. Add remaining shredded cheddar cheese and sliced black olives to make the Incredibles “i” logo.

Cook in preheated 400 F oven for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm! Yummy.

 

Incredibles Printable

As part of our dinner, I made free printable Incredible Placemats for the kids. These were a fun way to not only keep the kids entertained while dinner cooked, but to expand on the theme a little too! I intend to make these reusable placemats for each of our Disney Family Fun Nights (they are great to take in the car too!) You can download all 3 versions of the  Incredibles Placemats and movie tickets by scrolling to the bottom of the post, under the terms of use, and clicking on the text link that says >> Download <<. The pdf file will open in a new window for you to save the freebie. Print in color on plain printer or cardstock.

Cut apart the tickets to give to your children in the morning to add to the anticipation. (This is loads of fun for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, first graders, 2nd graders, 3rd graders, and elementary age kids). I laminated the placemats so that my kiddos could use them over and over again with dry erase markers or dry erase crayons! Kids of all ages will love these free activity sheets!
