  • Family Movie Night Activity: The Game Plan

    Joe Kingman is the “king” of football, at the height of his game, literally, and he is livin’ la vita loca! Nothing, it seems, can go wrong until one day an angelic 8 year old shows up at his door claiming to be his daughter. Adding parenting to his current repertoire seems daunting but a task even the king himself is up to, especially when the little girl steals his heart!

    Movie Snacks:

    *As you are planning your menu for this FMNA night you may want to think, carbs! For dinners Joe Kingman introduces the world of simple carbs to Peyton, and her first night at his house he serves her up a mountain of spaghetti. Throw a tossed salad together and some garlic bread and you have a delicious start to your evening of family fun!
    *Another food that Joe introduces to Peyton is protein shakes. I know this is something you’d typically have for breakfast or lunch but you could just do a fruit shake (ice cream, milk, and fruit of your choice) and call it a protein shake. Of course your kids may be sorely disappointed if/when they do have a real protein shake ;o)

    Must Pause Moments:

    *Before the movie begins make sure your kiddos are properly suited up. This film consists of football and ballet so your kid could wear a football helmet and dad’s old jersey. Another option if your sweet ones are enrolled in ballet or dance, to wear their costume. What a perfect opportunity to get to wear those cute little tutu’s!
    *About 15 minutes into the film Joe introduces a playbook to Peyton, only instead of doing football plays, he shows her places in the house that are on or off limits. Provide each child with a playbook of their own, just a simple notebook and a writing utensil, and let them make plays of their own. Maybe of their room or their fort, or the playroom, whatever but just so they “Learn it, Live it, Love it”! –Joe Kingman
    *When you feel like your kids are needing a break, I would recommend right before they have their “protein shakes”, take a half time break and play a quick game of family football. Depending on how many kids you have and the ages, this could be an absolute riot and I strongly suggest you set up the camcorder for this little half time game/show.

    Other Activities:

    *This activity goes along with the football game, except it is on the other end of the spectrum. Find your favorite classical channel on Pandora and have a little ballet recital. Again I suggest filming this for your family library because of course you’ll want to have mom and dad fully costumed (if possible) in tights and tutu’s and doing their best to show their ballet grace.
    *This activity is so sweet! Once Peyton wins over Joe’s heart, she has him wrapped around her finger. She even makes artwork consisting of their little family and Joe hangs it in his locker. Provide your kids with paper and crayons/washable markers and let them draw a masterpiece of their own. Then you and/or your spouse can take the artwork to your various places of work to hang and brag over your child’s talent.
    *This last activity can be done on a hot night and maybe before the movie even starts because you’ll all have to change into dry clothes. About half way into the movie, Peyton and the rest of the team ambush Joe with water balloons and super soakers, ending up in a huge water fight. Buy a bunch of balloons to fill up with water and if you have super-soakers fill those baby’s up and herd the family outside for a fun family water fight!
