Family Movie Night: The Peanuts Movie

Unfortunately because of life-threatening food allergies the only Peanuts we can have in our home are those associated with the Charles Schulz comic strip featuring Snoopy, Charlie Brown and their youthful gang of friends.  So it was a real treat to enjoy a #PeanutsMovieNight courtesy of our friends at Fox Home Entertainment.

Our Peanuts themed family movie night began with an after-dinner trip to the neighborhood park to take a stab at flying a kite, hate to admit it but I'm about as skilled at that as good ole Charlie Brown is, and to throw around a baseball playing catch since that is one of Snoopy and the gang's favorite activities.  When we returned home from the park, we watched on of The Peanut Movie Blu-ray bonus features that provides drawing lessons for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock.  The kids then spent some time taking a stab at drawing their favorite Peanuts characters.

While the kids were drawing, my wife and I whipped up some movie snacks (cinnamon toast, jelly beans, and popcorn) so we could have our own feast like the one in the A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving television special.  Then our family curled up on the couches around the living room to enjoy watching The Peanuts Movie.

Once the show concluded, my kids had some more fun playing with a set of McDonalds' Peanuts Happy Meal toys that we'd been sent along with the movie and several other The Peanuts Movie themed goodies from the good folks over at Fox Home Entertainment.  Bedtime soon arrived and we all soon had dreams of little Woodstock type yellow birds circling our heads.  It is always nice to have a family movie night that includes other themed activities going beyond just watching a video and we had a wonderful evening enjoying some quality time together.

In The Peanuts Movie, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang appear as you’ve never seen them before in a brand-new animated feature film from the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of Ice Age. Join everyone’s favorite eternal optimist, Charlie Brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest to win the affection of the little red-haired girl, while his beagle pal Snoopy takes to the skies to pursue his arch nemesis, the Red Baron. It’s a hilarious and heart-warming adventure!

 The Peanuts Movie is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and DigitalHD.  For more information, visit
