Our Russell Madness Family Movie Night! #RussellMadness #RussellInsiders

**This is a sponsored post.  I received the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Last Friday we had a super fun family movie night incorporating the adorably fun new movie entitled Russell Madness!  My kids were given three cute plush Russell dogs that they haven't stopped taking to bed with them ever since we received them.  Our movie night was a blast and the Fox Home Entertainment Insiders hooked us up with some wonderful items to make our movie night extra special.  First of all we received a coupon for a free Minute Rice product and I was able to try a delicious new recipe in which my family ALL loved.  Now with three kids that's saying something!  We lead a very busy life and when I can find an easy and nutritious meal that my family will eat, well that's kind of like magic!  I just had to share this great recipe with my readers!

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cups milk
1 cup frozen peas
2 cups Minute White Rice, uncooked
2 cans (6 oz. each) tuna fish, drained and flaked
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

PREHEAT oven to 375 F.  MIX soup, milk and peas in medium saucepan.  Bring to boil on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.  ADD MINUTE White Rice and tuna; mix lightly.  SPOON into a 2-quart casserole dish; sprinkle with cheese.  Bake 20 minutes or until heated through.

After dinner we had a great time doing our Russell Madness games and activities that I have included in this post for you all to do with your family as well.  Bella and I had a great time playing Boxed In!  Sam loved the Word Search and Ava loved coloring in the Dot-to-dot of the cute pooch Russell!

Please feel free to download these printable activities so that you can also host your own Russell Madness Family Movie Night!

After dinner and activities it was time for the movie itself!  Russell Madness begins with a puppy that just steals your heart!  He can't find a family of his own and they kids found it hilarious when Russell pees on a child who picks him up trying to pick out a pet.  Poor Russell isn't picked again!  After running away from the pet store Russell meets a family trying to revive a wrestling arena.  With the adorable coach, "Hunk" - this cute monkey that you see pictured on the cover, Russell becomes a famous wrestler.  This movie is just so cute.  I love animals - especially dogs and monkeys so this was just such a great one for me to watch personally.  The kids loved it and have watched it numerous times since our actual family movie night!

After the movie it was time for dessert!  I can't leave out our other two sponsors for our Russell Madness Family Movie Night!  We were given a coupon for a free box of Joy Cones!  My kids chose waffle cones of course!  We love to crumble up our waffle cones over a bowl of ice cream so you can be sure to get a piece of those delicious crunchy waffle cones in every bite!
Although we weren't able to go out for ice cream that night - it was past the kiddos' bed time.  We were also give a gift card to go out for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery!  This is my absolute favorite ice cream place.  I love being able to pick my flavors and toppings!  While you are there next you can pick up a coupon good for $2 off a Blu-ray or DVD copy of Russell Madness and try out this yummy creation: Hunk’s Banana Split Decision™!  Oh it looks delicious!!!
