Here, Saturday nights are family movie nights. We all make beds on the floor (or the couch), gather up some hot from the oven pizza and curl up together to go on a new adventure. Whether it’s trip down memory lane for us oldies like Herbie or a new movie that has Bethany flat-out laughing out loud like Wall-E, the movie has to be one that’s good, wholesome and entertaining.
Each week I do my best to pull out another new movie for our kids to see and whether it’s from yesteryear or this year, it doesn’t really matter as long as happiness is achieved by the end. Sometimes that can be hard. Movie content isn’t what it used to be and more than once Corey and I are left holding the remote, while trying to explain to two tearful girls why we had to just turn it off. In fact last weekend went something like that and I was starting to get a little discouraged.
Then I heard the news, Dreamworks the creatures of the Madagascar movies (good movies, that not only Beth and Audrey loved but Corey and I did too) are bringing out a third movie! Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is in theatres June 8th and we couldn’t be more thrilled! It’s only a matter of time before we’re once again giggling along with the antics of Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria and Audrey’s favourites – the penguins. It’s going to be excellent, and while we may go and see it in theatres when it comes out, I can’t wait to watch it in the comfort of our own living room, snuggled up with my girls.
If that wasn’t enough, I also learned that our fabulous friends over at Kinder have decided to partner with Dreamworks on the launch of the new Madagascar movie! Together they’re not only bringing you specially marked 3 packs of Kinder Eggs with 1 in 3 eggs containing a limited edition Madagascar toy, but they’re giving you the chance to win a 1 of 120 Cineplex Family Passes to go see the movie or 1 of 4 awesome Grand Prizes!
Valued at approximately $76 each Cineplex Family Pass includes two adult admissions, two children’s admissions, 2 soft drinks and 1 popcorn, as well as 2 kids tray combos! Sounds like a pretty great night to me!
All you have to do is head on over to Kinder Canada Facebook page on June 6th and for 12 days you will have the chance to enter to win the above prizes! Since I know you’ll be on the computer during those 12 days, from June 6th to 17th, why not stop on over, follow the instructions on how to win and see what happens?!
I don’t know about you, but I think one of those Cineplex Family Passes to go see Madagascar 3 sounds like a pretty great surprise to give your kids on the last day of school to me!
Good luck everyone!Disclosure: I’m part of the Kinder® Mom program and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.
