I am sure every Mom out there has heard all about the new Disney Teen Beach movie. If you haven’t, it’s the most-anticipated movie from the Disney channel coming to your TV screen July 19th. I am not going to lie, I somehow manged to get sucked into all of the Disney original movies along with my kids! Sixteen Wishes and Camp Rock are still a few of my favorites. I am sure that there’s been a few times where I’ve been caught watching them without my kids in the room. Okay, maybe more then a few, I confess.
When I searched online for fun ideas to be THAT cool Mom who plans a party for the movie premiere, I came across this super-fun party kit that let’s you print fun banners and invites for your movie viewing party. So cool! I know, I may be getting a little too into this Teen Beach movie. But it’s all for the kids… right? Wink, wink. Give me a reason to plan a party and I am your girl! Besides, who doesn’t love a fun movie viewing party? After all, my older girls have been counting to the big premiere so I might as well make it even better!
