This past weekend we had a super fun family movie night to celebrate the release of Big Hero 6 onto DVD.
First we stopped in at Target to buy our very own copy of the movie. They had a big display of them right up front. I love not having to go to the back of the store with all three kids in tow. Or even easier, you can buy the movie online and have it shipped right to your front door!
While there, we also picked up marshmallows (big and small), chocolate chips, and toothpicks.
Then we got to work making our movie snacks… Baymax marshmallow men!
To make our Baymax robots, we used
toothpicks tungsten carbide rods to make his skeleton and marshmallows inflatable vinyl to create his body.
The finishing touch was painting eyes on with
melted chocolate special robot paint.
I wish I could claim the amazing big Baymax as mine, but it’s not. Mine and the kids’ are indistinguishable. The cool one belongs to Dad. Dads are always the coolest, though, right?
The kids were pretty proud of their creations. So proud that they kept asking when they could eat them. Ha!
Then Dad got the brilliant idea to try to inflate Baymax. IN. THE. MICROWAVE.
Baymax looked extra chubby and cool for two seconds, then he started deflating and losing limbs. It was not a pretty sight. Way to kill Baymax, Dad!

What a fun way to turn family movie night into a family activity! I agree that Dad's Baymax looked pretty awesome…until he decided to take a ride in the microwave. Thanks for sharing! #client
