Waiting on the Great Pumpkin Outdoor Movie Night
It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! Time to welcome in Fall with this movie tradition our kids look forward to every year. Linus believes in magic with all of his heart that the Great Pumpkin will rise on Halloween night. We also believe in magic and all things whimsical. What could be more magical than inviting some kids over to wait on the Great Pumpkin? We were inspired by Linus and his love of magic to create an outdoor movie night. We built a PVC pipe frame and attached blackout drapery fabric to use as the movie screen. Using a projector, we hooked up a laptop and played the movie onto the screen. The kids were greeted with a popcorn bar, with make your own toppings and lemonade in mason jars. The kids could “borrow a blanket from Linus” and settle down near the hay bales to watch the movie. We capped off the night with Charlie Brown Cake Pops.
As a special surprise at the end of the night, they took home a letter that they could leave for the Great Pumpkin on Halloween night.
