Of all our family traditions, one of my favorite is our family movie night. We love to gather around the television and watch a movie together as a group while enjoying great snacks. We recently had a family movie night to enjoy the new release of the Angry Birds movie. Today, I’m excited to share with you all some fun ideas for having your own Angry Birds movie night. From a printable word search game to DIY Angry Birds coasters, you can create a fun night full of creativity and fun for your family. To research ideas for my movie night, I used my new Coolpad Catalyst smartphone with my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan.

Here’s a sneak peek at the DIY coasters I made for this movie night!

I love my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan! Have you ever checked it out? This plan features an Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU. This free movie on VUDU can be a new release rental with a $7 value! This plan is offered at only $49.88 per line. That’s an impressive amount of data at a very affordable price. If you’re in the market for a new cellular carrier, be sure to check out the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan.

Now, let me share some details of our family movie night. The kids were so excited about the release of the Angry Birds movie, so I knew I wanted to add some fun elements to our little party. The first thing I did to prepare for our Angry Birds Family Movie Night was make the coasters! Here are the supplies I used:
4″x4″ ceramic tiles
acrylic paint
paintbrush
pencil

1. Start by drawing the outline of the various bird characters in pencil. Then, using the paintbrush fill in the outlines with the appropriate paint colors.

2. Add additional features to the birds, such as tails and feathers. It doesn’t have to look perfect; the imperfections are what give it a charming look!

3. To add the whites of the eyes, use a cotton swab dipped in white paint. To add the pupils of the eyes, use a pencil dipped in black paint.

4. Lastly, add the final touches (beaks, eyebrows, etc.) using the paintbrush and paint.

5. To make the coasters more durable, I sprayed some waterproofing spray on top.

Another thing I created for our Angry Birds Family Movie Night is a Word Search Game. There is a list of some of the characters from the movie at the bottom and you have to find the names within the grid of letters! To download a free printable of this word search game, please click here. Here is my daughter playing this game before our movie started!

No movie night is complete without some delicious snacks. I gathered some delicious popcorn and some lemon iced tea!

With the Angry Birds coasters and the Angry Birds Word Search game, our movie night is coming together so beautifully.

The Angry Birds coasters make the perfect spot to set down a glass of lemon iced tea! My daughters both wanted the Red Bird coaster!

We were so excited when we finally sat down to watch the Angry Birds characters on the screen! Did you know that the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan offers one free VUDU movie each month ($7 value, same as a new release rental)? That means even more movie nights for us in the future. We love family movie nights, so with this free movie allowance, we can enjoy many more movies together!

Want even more ideas for your Angry Birds Family Movie Night? Here are some more fun ways to incorporate the movie into your evening!

  • Serving chips? Call them “Chuck’s Chips” after the character in the movie. Serving soda? Call it “Stella’s Soda”. Little details like this make the evening more magical for the kids.
  • Draw a few of the movie characters onto small canvases (in the same simple way we made the coasters). Place these around the room to add more Angry Birds to the space.
  • Encourage everyone to play the Angry Birds game app before the movie. The person with the highest score wins!

To prepare for my movie night, I researched some recipes & craft ideas online using my new smartphone: the Coolpad Catalyst from Walmart for only $59.88. With the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan, I get Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88. I can watch my free VUDU Movie on a SmartTV or on a regular TV via Roku, Chromecast, or other compatible streaming media player. *All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer here or your local Walmart for current pricing.

To get my plan all set up, I needed to buy the Starter Kit from Walmart. By the way, there’s a great deal going on right now! For the first time ever, the Starter Kit will be on rollback for $19.88 (from $25)! I love that I was able to get my phone set up so much more affordably at Walmart than at other carriers.

I use my phone every day to check my email, respond to blog comments, post on social media, keep in touch with friends/family, and so much more! With a large data allowance of 10GB of 4G LTE data, I don’t have to worry about running out of data. Since the Coolpad Catalyst has a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, a 5″ display and 8GB ROM, it’s loaded with all the features I look for in a fast and powerful phone.

As a full-time blogger, I never leave home without my phone. Keeping my calendar updated on my phone makes it very easy to keep track of my daily chores and responsibilities.
