We’re getting in the back to school spirit over here. Even though we have a few weeks left of summer, August is when we begin shopping for supplies, clothes and whatever else we’ll need for the new school year. That doesn’t mean that the summer fun is over just yet. We’re packing a lot into the next few weeks and we kicked it all off with a fun Peppa Pig inspired back to school party last weekend.
Evie loves Peppa Pig and putting together a little party for her and a couple friends to celebrate the release of Peppa Pig Sunny Vacation out on DVD now.
As a Fox Home Entertainment Insider, I received this awesome party pack with just about everything I needed for a fun party! I ordered a pizza for lunch and whipped up a couple snacks like brownies and piggy noses (candy coated marshmallows to look like pig noses) and we were ready to party!
We watched the new movie with our Peppa Pig fans, colored and ate some yummy snacks. The kids played and the moms had a chance to chat about our plans for the rest of summer and even back to school.
The piggy noses were a hit with the kids and they were really easy to make. All you need is a bag of pink candy wafers, giant marshmallows and round pink sprinkles (large ones).
Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 20-second increments until melted.
Insert a lollipop stick into the marshmallow.
Dip marshmallow in melted chocolate until all sides are covered.
Place two of the candy balls in the center to resemble the nostrils.
Let candy harden. I usually place them in the fridge to speed this part of the process up.
Once the candy has hardened, simply place them in a container on the table or dessert table.
My little one didn’t want to wait once I put them out. She couldn’t wait to eat one.
If your little one is heading back to school this fall, here are some great tips to share with them.
Why not throw your own party! It could be just a movie night with your little ones or invite some friends over for a day of fun. Grab a copy of the new DVD, whip up a few snacks and get your little ones excited for back to school.
