The global Coronavirus pandemic has forced families to stay home in order to stay safe. However, being home with the kids has it’s challenges – dealing with keeping kids busy and keeping boredom at bay being just some.
Aussie mum, Rachel Hallett, has been making movie night on a budget into something magical for her kids.
Each week she picks a movie for the kids and creates a family movie night snack box that puts cinema snacks to shame! The best part is that she does this all for the price of one large popcorn at your local cinema ($20 max)
Rachel shares her movie snack box on the Mums Who Facebook with other Aussie mums who love and use her creative ideas for their own families.
‘I love seeing her movie night boxes,’ says Veronica L from the group, ‘Particularly now that we’re in isolation, it gives me ideas to make a boring movie with the kids into something a bit more exciting for them.’
Rachel shares her top 5 snack boxes to try:

Consisting of green cordial, M&Ms, coloured popcorn and a Monster slider.
Shrek at home:
Consisting of green macaroni and cheese, marshmallows and a colourful gingerbread man.
