In case you haven’t heard already, one of the best movies of the year came out on Tuesday, Guardians of the Galaxy. We didn’t get to see it in theaters, but heard so many good things about it. We just couldn’t wait till it came out on DVD. The DVD features: Exclusive Character O-sleeve and exclusive music zinepack and a 64 page magazine with cast and crew interviews, exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and trivia PLUS a custom “cassette” laptop decal. I went early Tuesday morning to snag our copy. I decided to celebrate the release with a family movie night, on a school night! Dustyn was ecstatic to be able to stay up a little late on a school night.
We had pizza, candy, chips and the best of all… cupcakes!
I decided to have some fun with these and picked up all of the little Guardians of the Galaxy figures. I baked cupcakes, topped them with purple icing, and sprinkles. Then just topped each cupcake with a figure.
The boys enjoyed playing with the figures after eating their cupcakes. If your child wants a Guardians of the Galaxy birthday party these would be perfect. Then each child could take home their own figure at the end of the party.
Getting ready to watch the movie! We had so much fun, Dustyn asked if we could do that every night.
The next day I decided to make this baby Groot.
I took some brown packing paper that I had laying around and twisted it up. Then took little strips of brown packing paper for his arms.
Next, I twisted up green packing paper and wrapped around the main body and arms.
Glued these in place.
Then just trimmed the top of his head and his arms.
Finally I drew his eyes and a little smiley face. Seriously so easy and the cutest.
Dustyn loves him and now has him sitting on his dresser in his room. Groot was hands down our favorite character in Guardians of the Galaxy.
