We hosted a Kids’ Choice Awards viewing party with themed party foods and Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters.
Did you watch the Kids’ Choice Awards the other night? Since having kids of my own I think this award show has become more relevant to me than any of the adult shows. I hadn’t seen a single movie that was up for an Oscar this year but I knew every single one of the Kids’ Choice Awards nominees! So, since the only thing more fun than watching an awards show is watching an awards show with friends I organized a little Kids’ Choice Awards viewing party with friends. We had so much fun with it!
We wound up having 12 people come to the party so I stocked up on snacks and drinks at Walmart. I grabbed a 30-pack of Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters from the special Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters and the Kids’ Choice Awards in-store display at Walmart. Kids get pretty thirsty when they are running around with their friends and Capri Sun is a better-for-you alternative to sodas. It is a lightly fruit-flavored water beverage with no artificial colors or flavors, and it is only 30 calories. I even used a few packets of Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters to make a recipe!

I glammed up the food table with a shimmery foil curtain and a Nickelodeon banner that Kat and I cut out of scrapbook paper.
The food all represented different Kids’ Choice Awards nominees. We had Regina’s Apple Dip (Once Upon a Time), Cowabunga Pizza Rolls (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Candy Crushcakes (Candy Crush Saga), Bazinga! Balls (The Big Bang Theory), and SpongeBob’s Pineapple Parfaits (SpongeBob Squarepants).
The SpongeBob’s Parfaits are the recipe I made with Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters. I used a small box of Island Pineapple Jell-O and added the powder to boiled water per the instructions. Then I substituted the cold water for cold Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters. To make the parfaits a little fancier I poured the Jell-O into small cups and used a muffin tin to hold them so I could tip them sideways and let the Jell-O firm up at a slant. When the Jell-O was ready I filled the cup the rest of the way with Cool Whip.
They were so good and I loved the way the slanted Jell-O looked in the cups! The kids all thought it was so cool and Jell-O and CoolWhip is always a hit.
Pineapple Jell-O Parfaits
- 1 3 oz. box Island Pineapple Jell-O, you can substitute any flavor
- 1 c Capri Sun Roarin' Waters Tropical Fruit
- 8 oz. Cool Whip
- 1 c Water
- 6 5 oz. Plastic cups
- Add Jell-O mix to 1 cup boiling water, stir until dissolved.
- Add 1 c cold Capri Sun Roarin' Waters Tropical Fruit
- Place 6 5 oz. plastic cups in a muffin tin and tilt them to the side. Then fill each cup with Jell-O and place in the refrigerator until firm (at least 2 hours).
- Remove firm Jell-O from refrigerator and fill the rest of the cup with Cool Whip.
- Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Our table backdrop doubled as a photo booth and all of our guests had so much fun posing for pics before the awards show started. Aren’t those some good-looking kids?!
We do a lot of family movie nights and Saturday night dance parties around here so we all had our favorite shows/celebs/movies/songs that we were cheering for. The kids were all so excited when SpongeBob Squarepants took home the Favorite Cartoon Character award and I was glad to see Modern Family win for Favorite Family T.V. Show! It was such a fun night and we made sure to send everyone home with their own little swag bag that we filled with a cookie.
My kids loved every second of it and they were still talking about it the next day. I think we may have a new yearly tradition!
