Family Movie Night
Friday movie night is a weekly tradition at the Bren Did homestead. We enjoy making homemade pizza and bread sticks, snuggling up on the couch and watching movies together.
It’s a simple part of my kid’s childhood that I hope they always remember. We use Netflix to stream our favorite movies and discover lots of new movies as well.
Winnie the Pooh
One of our favorite Disney movies is classic Winnie the Pooh, that chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.. remember the Winnie the Pooh theme song? The honey-loving bear holds a special place in all our hearts. (I remember watching Winnie the Pooh movies as a child on the Wonderful World of Disney.)
A Disney movie I recommend for young families is Springtime with Roo, a fun Winnie the Pooh Easter story that features all of the classic Winnie the Pooh characters. The movie stars one of my favorite, rarely highlighted residents of the Hundred Acre Woods: sweet little Roo!
Healthy Honey Bee No Bake Cookies
I enjoy healthy kid-friendly recipes we can prepare together on movie night. We love making is Healthy Honey Bee No Bake Cookies they are an easy peanut butter graham cracker cookies that contains no added sugar!
Healthy Honey Bee No Bake Cookies are easy to prepare: crush some graham crackers, stir in peanut butter, coconut oil and honey then roll into balls. You add a bit of chocolate and slivered almond wings to make them look like honey bees or shape with mini cookie cutters. They are a fun recipe to make with kids. In 15 minutes you can have your own swarm of bee snacks ready for treat time.
Healthy Honey Bee No Bake Cookies
- 1 cup finely crushed graham cracker crumbs (about one sleeve)
- 2 tbsp wheat germ or ground fax seeds (optional)
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, almond butter or sunflower seed butter
- 2 Tbsp honey (I use raw, local honey for added allergy resistance benefits)
- 1-2 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
- 1/8 cup sliced almonds (for wings, optional)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tsp coconut oil
1. Finely crush the graham crackers. I put mine in a large zip-lock baggie and the kids roll over them with a rolling-pin to crush. I sift mine with a small colander to make sure all the large bits are crushed.
2. Add remaining ingredients to graham cracker crumbs and stir until well combined. Add additional tablespoon of coconut oil if necessary to reach rolling constancy.
3. Roll dough into 1 teaspoon size oval. Place balls on wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill for 5 minutes.
4. While dough is chilling melt chocolate with 1 tsp coconut oil in a double boiler or glass boil placed in a saucepan of boiling water. Stir constantly to prevent scorching.
5. Use an icing decorating bag or squeeze bottle to dispense chocolate. Make three narrow lines on each bee.
6. Place two slices of almond on each bee body.
7. Use a toothpick to make eyes on each bee.
8. Alternate Shaping Method: Press the dough into a 1/2 inch thick layer and chill for 5 minutes.
9. Cut out shapes with mini cookie cutters. I used an Easter egg, carrot and umbrella to represent the Hundred Acre Woods.
10. Decorated the tops with chocolate.
11. Chill your bees or cut out shapes until the chocolate is solid, about 5 minutes.
