During the cold and snowy winter months our family tends to hibernate in our house – we only venture out for required events like school and work. So we have to get creative to keep ourselves from being overcome with boredom. One of our favorite things to do is have movie nights – and my son loves to build pillow forts and get comfy to watch.
Of course movie night also means snack time – and we always make sure to have plenty of PopSecret Popcorn on hand! It’s one snack that my whole family can agree on, and we can make our own. I love to sprinkle ranch seasoning on mine, and the kids will sometimes add chocolate chips or melt caramel on top of theirs. Sometimes well have a popcorn flavor sampling – we use salsa bowls and we all create a flavor, and then everyone tries it! We’ve came up with some unique tasty flavors (popcorn and bacon bits are yum) and some that were not so great (butter popcorn with cinnamon – yeah, not so much). Anyway you have it, it’s a favorite snack while we have family movie night!
Now I’m not much of a fort maker – but he seems pretty happy with the blankets and pillow set-up over the chairs in the living room. He even gets his sisters to join him every once in awhile.
We aren’t the only ones that think popcorn and pillow forts go together – PopSecret is encouraging everyone to build their own pillow fort -and share the photo on their Facebook page to be entered to win some mystery prizes (while supplies last).

Our boys love nothing more than a great movie night. We always have to have popcorn!
When I was a kid, all I wanted to do was make forts. Forts make everything better.
My boys love building forts. It is always so much fun!
Something magical happens when you build a fort! Ad a movie and popcorn and you have a winner! (I have that same rug 🙂
Ohhh, we haven’t made a fort in a while around here. I will be suggesting that during the next movie night!
You can’t have family movie night with popcorn! I haven’t made a fort in forever, but it looks like your family had a blast!
Love their popcorn. Watching a movie while held up in a fort is a great night for us.
This is such a fun concept, especially for those with kids! My kids would love to eat popcorn in their pillow fort!
We probably make popcorn once a day, my kids love it so much! It is a great snack!
My daughter used to eat a whole bag of popcorn every night. Her favorite was PopSecret brand!
Building forts is always such a fun time. The kids are always really creative with their forts.
I love the popcorn flavor sampling idea. Sounds like fun.
Movie nights have to have popcorn to be complete.
Hubby and I snack on Pop Secret every night. It’s our go to snack for snuggling up on the couch and watching movies. That is, when the kids aren’t stealing our pillows off the couch for their pillow forts too lol.
All four of my kids have loved homemade forts. I vaguely remember making them when I was a kiddo too. 🙂
My kids love popcon and will always ask for it when its time for movies.
Yum popcorn is a huge fave here in my house! Not sure we have pop secret in Canada I will have to check!
What a fun family activity– and who doesn’t love popcorn?
We love having family movie nights. Pop Secret makes it even better.
Great coupon. I love making forts and watching movies when it is cold outside.
My sister and I use to love making forts! Adding in the popcorn is another bonus to a fun night, well adding a spooky movie would be fun too.
We love having movie night at our house and we do one almost every weekend. We’ve done sheet forts and pillow forts. We’ve even pretended we were at a drive in.
Awwww what a fun time! I love family movie time. Your little guy is adorable. We love popcorn and will give PopSecret a try.
Great idea! Hubby and I love having a movie night with popcorn with our niece and nephew! And now I’m craving popcorn…
my boys and I must have popcorn for movie nights. We’ve built forts too but not on movie nights. Now we have something different to try.
I actually bought some popcorn earlier today because it’s one of my favorite snacks!
There is really nothing better than popcorn and pillow forts in the living room. We do it often, especially on family movie night.
He is too cute in that fort. I am actually planning to have some kids over for a movie night. I’ll have to work the forts into the mix. They’ll love it.
With three little boys under 3, everything is a fort and the older two are discovering pillow fights, along with pretty much every other kind of fight. We also eat a ton of popcorn. I love making it the old fashioned way, but sometimes i don’t want to put that much work into it, that’s where pop secret comes in.
We made a pillow fort this past weekend too. Lots of fun!
Cabin fever is starting to set in at my house and this is perfect! My twins would love this!
Love movie nights at home!
What a cute little darling!
love movie nights and popcorn
