Quality family bonding time is so important to me as a mother. Trying to keep our family connected in a fun way takes some creativity! My kids tend to get bored with the same old things, so it's good to mix things up.
Lately we've all been loving planned-out nights. Isn't it so much more fun when there is a planned family night to look forward to? Family movie night is one of my son's favorites right now. To keep it interesting, I like to make up a yummy snack that the whole family can enjoy and even help me make.
For our Family Movie Night this week I made a yummy Tropical Punch Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. My family couldn't get enough of this fruity dip. Plus, it is such a great way to get my kids to eat their fruit for the day and definitely perfect for snacking on during a movie!
Right now we are looking forward to the new movie Dreamworks The Boss Baby! My son Jonas asks every day when we can go see it in theatres. This movie is probably relatable to him because his baby sister kind of rules the roost right now. She is a bossy baby for sure.
Be sure to snag the recipe below, so you can try it out on your next Family Movie Night, maybe even when DreamWorks The Boss Baby comes out on DVD! If you are a way too busy mom, this dip is for you. I promise it's easy to make and won't cost a fortune, since there aren't many ingredients.
