Grab your sweet tooth and your love of Disney movies, and get ready to throw a sweet shindig your entire family will enjoy. With the recent release of Big Hero 6 (our family’s new favorite movie!), we were inspired to host a preschool party with lots of pep. Bright colors, sweet treats, and a few themed activities brought Big Hero 6’s characters to life. If you are throwing a children’s birthday party, a mommy meet up, or just want to celebrate the weekend, host a Big Hero 6 party with these simple ideas.
To plan a proper Big Hero 6 party, you first must familiarize yourself with the movie. Disney’s Big Hero 6 DVD is available at Walmart, and you find a display near the electronics section. Your purchase of the Big Hero 6 Blu-Ray/DVD + Gift With Purchase Set includes a digital movie on Vudu while supplies last! Simply scan your receipt using the Savings Catcher in the Walmart app. Then look for a message on your phone or email. Now you can watch Big Hero 6 on any device! This is SO awesome since now we can watch Big Hero 6 on the go! This came in handy when I threw this party at my local park. While I do a lot of entertaining at home, sometimes it makes more sense to be outdoors. Choosing a venue can be a problem for some if your home isn’t ready for guests, so consider thinking outside the box. I chose a park that had lots of seating available including a pint-sized picnic table
As I already mentioned, I chose to have my party both indoors and out. I have a local park that features covered seating and lots of room to run. I wanted to encourage my party guests to interact with one another through various games and to have the space to do so. I set up a party table on a picnic table using linens and large candy jars. These would become the most fun part of the party! I used a small picnic table to host a coloring station, and I had children make their own Baymax characters using cotton balls.
This party featured snacks like these candy kabobs. Clearly the highlight of the day! Have you ever made a candy kabob? It’s quite simple really, but the children seemed to really love it!
Start with at least six candy dishes with sweets in a variety of colors. I selected candy based on the characters of Big Hero 6. I had red, green, yellow, white marshmallows (Baymax of course!), pink, and blue.
Try using a variety of flavors such as fruit or sour gummies. The best way to make a candy kabob is with large soft candies like gumdrops, marshmallows, and even licorice.
Grab a stick. Add some sweets. Enjoy!
You can use bamboo skewers from your local grocery store, just be sure to supervise this activity if children are participating.
Use licorice to create a fun effect from end to end.
You can also try using cotton candy!
There is definitely no wrong way to eat them!
Who can resist a treat that combines all of your favorite candy in one place? Download the candy kabob sign here.

Don’t Forget the Cake
Perhaps the best way to celebrate a movie release is with cake and punch. A slice of vanilla cake goes Big Hero 6 when it’s round and frosted! Use a simple black icing to re-create Baymax on the top of the cake.
It’s an easy and affordable way to bring the movie to your home.
Between sweets, art, and cake, I have to admit that this Big Hero 6 party is one to remember.
