Who else is super excited about the release of Big Hero 6 on DVD/Blu-Ray?
My family had not seen the movie until it was released on DVD because our older son doesn't do well at movie theaters. So, we decided to run by Walmart and pick up the so DVD as soon as it came out! The weather has been so yucky here lately, so I thought it would be really fun to have a little playdate party on a Saturday afternoon to keep the kids in the neighborhood busy with Big Hero 6, some yummy snacks, and a cute craft.
Baymax is such a cute character and I LOVED being able to brainstorm on how to bring his image into the party decor and the food. If you are looking for a super easy Baymax craft, you can add his eyes to simple white paper lanterns. I got these on Walmart.com and simply added some black sticky felt to them.
I wanted to concentrate on a black and white color scheme, like Baymax. I love the graphic quality of black and white stripes.
I downloaded a Big Hero font and then cut this cute banner with my Silhouette machine.
I tried to incorporate the fun character names into the menu as much as possible. With characters like Honey Lemon, Wasabi, Baymax, GoGo, and Fred, it was pretty much a given to tie those names into the food!
In the movie, so much of the plot revolves around Baymax's healthcare chip. So, I knew I wanted to put these veggie chips on my menu! Healthy chips!
For my Baymax dip, I made a simple fruit dip with cream cheese and marshmallow cream.
I served it with yummy strawberries and pretzels. To make a Baymax face, I added two peppermint patties and a piece of licorice. EASY and CUTE!
And, of course, Honey Lemon Cupcakes. I added some chocolate ones too, for those that don't like lemon flavor.
Since the adults were having sushi, I wanted to have the kids have "sushi" too. Except their sushi was actually pb&j and sandwiches. Some of the dads loved these too!
And speaking of sushi, look at these beautiful rolls!
I had to add this awesome Baymax toy that I got at Walmart.com. He is really cool because Hiro rides on his back and his fist really flies off! My three year old couldn't have been more excited when he arrived at our front door!
Whenever I am doing a themed party, I try to incorporate my kids' toys into the table. It's always fun for them to see the characters on the table too!
The big Baymax decal was also from Walmart.com and I applied him to a big piece of foam board and then cut around it with an Xacto knife. Then, I pinned him right into the foam backdrop.
This face was pretty excited for his friends to come over!

For the craft, I wanted to make the kids their own "Personal Healthcare Companion" first aid kit. I bought white sandwich boxes and white travel soap containers from Wal-Mart and added arms, feet, and a head out of pom poms and pipe cleaners to make them look like Baymax. I used hot glue for that part, so the kids didn't get burned.
The kids added stickers like smiley faces (pain indicators) and glittered hearts.
They filled them with band-aids, alcohol wipes, gauze and other first aid supplies.
Then it was time for the movie!
This sweet baby loves Baymax.
I loved Big Hero 6 because it was refreshing to have a movie that my boys can love, after all the Frozen mania of the past year!
And, it's got a lot of heart and a sweet message.
As you can see, these kiddos love it.
And, I got a cupcake for all that hard work!
Have fun with all those upcoming Big Hero Parties!
I think it's going to be a big theme in 2015!
