There is no doubt that Big Hero 6 will be a popular kid’s party theme this year!
We just had another week of no school for the kids due to snow and everyone, parents and kids, is going a little stir crazy. I don’t know how it is at your house but around here we are a little obsessed with Big Hero 6. Have you seen the movie? It’s about a team of kids who become super heroes and the big lovable robot that helps them.
My kids already wanted to be superheroes, add robots to the mix and it is all they walk about. So when Big Hero 6 came out on DVD on February 24th I ventured out to Walmart in the snow to grab a copy (check out that display I wasn’t the only one with this idea!!) and invited a few of my friends and their kiddos over to watch it.
I made some party food to go with our Big Hero 6 theme; Honey Lemon Cupcakes, San Fransokyo Teriyaki Bowls, and Baymax Meringue Cookies.
Everything was pretty simple. For the cupcakes I used a box mix and then cut a hole in them to fill them with lemon flavored pudding. Then I topped them with white frosting, drizzled them with honey and stuck a lemon drop candy on top.
I used Joy of Baking’s meringue cookie recipe to make my Baymax cookies. Before baking I added two chocolate chips for eyes and one they had cooked and cooled completely I piped a stripe of chocolate to connect the two eyes. They looked just like Baymax and the kids loved them!
The San Fransokyo Teriyaki bowls were simple. I marinated chicken breast cubes in a store bought teriyaki sauce and then baked the chicken at 400°F for 15 minutes. Then I poured some more marinade over the chicken bites and added them to a bowl of white rice. It was quick and easy and perfect for lunch with the kids.
After lunch the kids took turns dressing up in the Big Hero 6 Fist and Mask I had ordered for Sawyer on Walmart.com and playing with his Big Hero 6 Flying Baymax. Then I pulled out all of the robot-making supplies that I had bought. Large marshmallows, wooden skewers, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and nuts and bolts were laid out on the table and the kids went to town making their own super hero robots. They had so much fun and all of the parents had a great time seeing the creations the kids came up with.
The kids ate and played for awhile before they settled in to watch the movie. Then all of the adults had 102 minutes of quite time where we got to talk and hang out without kids who had been cooped up for days running around and screaming. It was pure bliss ;).
