I am always careful about the movies my boys are exposed to. I want to make sure what they are watching is family-friendly. So when the new Angry Birds the Movie came out I knew that I could be comfortable with my boys watching it. In fact, they like the movie so much that we decided to throw an Angry Birds viewing party.
Throwing an Angry Birds the Movie Viewing Party
I always love themed parties and this one was no different. I was inspired not only by the different colors of the Angry Birds characters but also by the characters themselves.
I began by creating a wall similar to the kind the birds had to break through on Piggy Island. The one I made is actually created with wall accents and decorated with some plus Angry Bird characters.
I used some wooden crates that I picked up at Walmart to create dynamite crates. I labeled them with signs that said TNT and also one that said “5,000” for points.
When it came to food I got creative. I iced cupcakes to correspond with the colors of the three main characters, Red, Chuck, and Bomb. I topped the cupcakes with some small action figures.
I also made a cookie tray with cookies that corresponded with the birds’ colors.
What is an invasion of Piggy Island without a bomb? I made a small 6-inch cake and iced it with chocolate icing. I added a small cupcake and a stick of licorice as the bomb fuse. I wrote “BOOM” on the cake and added a pig figure.
I also added some dynamite stick licorice. I took a bunch of about 10 red licorice sticks and put a wrapper around them that said “TNT” and placed them on the table.
For drinks, I created some Angry Bird cups and filled my drink dispenser with green punch. I cut out the picture of the pig king from one of the plates and attached it to the dispenser.
I embellished the table with some other items that corresponded to the birds and their colors such as candy, plates, and other tableware.
I created some “Which Angry Bird Are You” printables. These are fun personality quizzes which are based on the movie characters.
I also wanted the kids to be able to do a small craft so we made Angry Bird beanbags. Before the party I cut out pieces of felt which would make the body and the face of the bean bag critters. I had the kids place the pieces of felt onto the body and I hot glued it together. I then used some small pony beads to fill the bean bag. The kids loved picking and creating their favorite character from the movie!

The Plus Plan also gives you a free VUDU movie each month ($7 value) which is perfect for watching on your SmartTV, Chromecast, or even Roku.
