Join everyone's favorite eternal optimist, Charlie Brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest, while his beagle pal Snoopy takes to the skies as the Flying Ace to pursue his arch nemesis, the Red Baron. Fans of all ages will rejoice as Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang appear as you've never seen them before. The PEANUTS Movie - the critically acclaimed and Golden Globe Award® Nominated Film is out now on Digital HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD.



Every underdog has his day in this fun, family film as good ol’ Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang appear as you’ve never seen them before - in a brand-new feature film from the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of Ice Age. Join everyone’s favorite eternal optimist, Charlie Brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest, while his beagle pal Snoopy takes to the skies to pursue his arch nemesis, the Red Baron. It’s a hilarious and heart-warming adventure!

This was such an amazing film and had such a great lesson! Charlie Brown never gave up on his dream to talk to the little red head girl. Charlie Brown wanted the little red head girl to get to know him before the gang spread stories about him. He wanted her to know the real him, not what others thought of him. At the end of the film, there is a really touching moment when the little red head girl tells Charlie Brown how kind he is, a great brother, friend, etc. I dare you not to get emotional and shout out a whoop whoop for Charlie Brown!!!

This movie brought back so many memories as a child. Take a walk down memory lane with flashbacks and mentions of Joe Cool, Fifi and The Red Baron, Lucy pulling the football, Linus and his blanket, the great pumpkin, the kite and so much more! I loved the little classic cartoons integrated into the film as well! This is great family film and perfect for family movie nights. Unplug, eat some popcorn and enjoy the time with your family!

Charlie Brown and Snoopy Cupcakes!
 
For the cupcakes:
  • Black cupcake liners (to look like Charlie Brown's pants)
  • 1 box of cake mix (and ingredients required to make them)
  • Tub of frosting
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Chocolate chips
  • Piping bag
  • Wax Paper
  • Printed Snoopy and Charlie Brown designs
  1. Bake cupcakes according to package directions and allow to cool.
  2. Heat the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl  & cook in 30-second intervals until melted. Once melted, spoon the chocolate into a ziploc bag.  Place printed designs on a cookie sheet and layer wax paper on top.
    Snip off the tip of the bag and pipe/trace out the designs.  Freeze until harden.
  3.  Separate the frosting into two bowls. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring to the one bowl of frosting and stir. 
  4. Spread frosting  on cupcakes and place a chocolate Snoopy or zig zag on each one.

Charlie Brown & Gang Marshmallows

These fun marshmallows are perfect for hot cocoa, topping cupcakes or just popping in your mouth!  Who wouldn't want to see some of their beloved characters in a cup of cocoa?     These are super easy to make and all you will need is marshmallows and  food safe markers.

I picked up this four pack of pens that came in red,green,blue and yellow.  The set was under $5, if you go to a craft store, you can get larger sets with more colors.  These markers have a nice soft tip which is perfect for marshmallows!

Since I only had four colors, I used the blue as the outline.  For most of the marshmallows, I  colored first and then outlines.  So I made the Woodstock shape with yellow and then the blue to highlight the details.  It was pretty easy to to and if you make a mistake...eat the marshmallow real fast and no one will know!
