Have you see Hotel Transylvania? The story about Dracula and his family and monster friends is more silly than scary, and it’s perfect for a family movie. There are lots of great characters, enough action to keep everyone interested, and an easy-to-follow story that all of my kids could follow.
When I found out that Hotel Transylvania 2 was coming out, I knew the kids would be excited!
We happened to be traveling the weekend it was released, but we were determined to see the movie. We headed to the closest theater, and we were able to see Hotel Transylvania 2. It was awesome!
In celebration of Hotel Transylvania 2 now on digital, we were given the chance to host an in-home Hotel Transylvania 2 movie-night party. The kids helped me make treats for the party, and we put out favors for all of the guests.
After everyone arrived, we put the movie on and the kids sat down to watch.
I expected the parents to end up with me in the kitchen working on Mummy Monster Pops, but that didn’t end up happening. All four of the parents ended up sitting on the couches in the family room, watching Hotel Transylvania 2 along with the kids. We had a great time watching and laughing along with the kids.
The movie follows the original Hotel Transylvania movie, but it isn’t necessary to see the first to see the second. Two of the moms and two of the kids at our party hadn’t seen the first and completely loved seeing Hotel Transylvania 2. One even mentioned that they should go back and watch the first movie since the second was so cute!
Not only did we enjoy the movie, but we had so much fun checking out the extra bonus features which are on digital and blu-ray. Our favorite part was learning how to recreate the scary and silly sounds of Hotel T – Check out our skills now:
After the movie was over, we all enjoyed cupcakes and chatted for a while. Everyone was talking and laughing about their favorite parts of the movie, and I was thrilled that it all went so well.
The kids were getting tired and it was time to end our little party, but before they left, each child got to choose from the party favors. They were a total hit!
Hotel Transylvania 2 is already available on digital and will be available on Blu-ray January 12th. Be sure to enjoy this fun and funny movie with your kids!
Mummy Monster Pops
I thought we could make these as a surprise party favor for the kids to take home after the movie, but the adults all wanted to watch the movie. J
I’ll share them with you so you and your kids can enjoy them while you watch Hotel Transylvania 2!
Monster Mummy Pops
Oreo Double Stuf Cookies, cookie-pop Sticks, white candy melts and candy eyeballs
- Open Oreo cookie and stick one end of a cookie-pop stick down into the filling. Use a small amount of melted white candy melts to stick the other side of the Oreo cookie back on. Let cool.
- Dip cookie sucker into, or spoon melted white candy coating over, the cookie sucker until completely coated. Scrape off excess candy and set on wax paper. Add 2 candy eyeballs quickly before candy coating starts to cool.
- Once the cookie pops have cooled, drizzle white candy coating in lines across the pops. I used an icing tip to make thicker lines, but you can do thin lines across too. Let cool completely before picking up Mummy Pops.
