Disney Movie Nights – they are just traditional. They usually involve pj’s, favorite snacks, blankets & stuffed friends. But, in changing times, there is a new concept of movie night…themed movie nights. I love this concept for so many reasons. It is more than just watching a movie. You can include themed activities, food, & decorations. Our whole family becomes involved. From planning, to decorating, to clean-up, it is a true example of teamwork & a great bonding experience

I have a friend who’s currently on a European Vacation, she’s been posting pictures of Greece and I thought what better way to celebrate Greece than to have a fun movie night with Hercules!!


  • Toga Party –   While it’s not technically décor, have everyone dress in togas.  It will set the mood and be lots of fun.
  • Create a podium to award Family Olympic Medals.  Medals can be as simple as a ribbon with a cardstock circle.
  • Set the table with a white table cloth.  Use yellow or gold paper plates and flatware with white napkins.
  • Olive Leaf Crowns – Make this cute DIY Olive Leaf Crowns from Activity Village.  Include one at everyone’s place setting – they will look great with their togas!


Have your own Family Olympics and replicate the events from the first games.

  • Discus Throw – Who can throw a Frisbee the farthest?  Have a line that everyone must be behind when they throw the Frisbee.  Everyone gets three throws and the one who throws the farthest within the fair area wins.
  • Marathon – Have everyone run three laps around the back yard for a family marathon.  First across the finish line wins.
  • Long Jump – Everyone runs and jumps as far as possible, one who jumps the farthest wins.
  • Be sure to have your Family Medal Olympic Ceremony.  Include medals for the best toga or Phil impression too for even more family fun.


  • Spinach Dip & Pita Chips– Kids love spinach dip and it’s full of protein and vitamins.
  • Olympic Fruit Torches – Filled a sugar cone with chopped fresh fruits.  Choose the kids favorites like peaches, watermelon, pineapple, blueberries or strawberries.
  • Gold Medal Grilled Cheese – make grilled cheese sandwiches using a variety of cheeses then cut them into “medals” using a round biscuit or cookie cutter.
  • Greek Salad – Make a Greek Salad using olives, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese.  Season them with oregano and salt, then toss them in olive oil.
