Typically for family streaming nights, we enjoy comedy (or a good ol throwback to introduce the kids to some of my childhood favorites) but Rocky’s been RAVING about this new show he recently got into, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. He wouldn’t stop talking about it so I made some snacks and we enjoyed a Dino-themed family night.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is a fun new show following 6 teenagers who won a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Camp Cretaceous. When the dinosaurs decide to wreak havoc, it’s up to the teenagers to work together in order to survive. For the first time EVER, we get to experience Jurassic World from the kids’ perspective... all of whom are different ethnicities. Because representation matters!
And don’t worry... It’s just as exciting and heart-pounding as the movies but with less on-screen gore and violence so the whole family can watch and enjoy.
Here’s a fun Dino-themed snack I made to go with it!

A quick trip to Walmart will get you off to a great start! Here’s what you’ll need:

Spatula or spoon
Baking pan, cutting board OR serving dish
Step 1: Pop the two bags of popcorn
Step 2: Pour popped popcorn into large mixing bowl

Step 4: Add butter and microwave another 30 seconds. Stir.
Step 5: Pour marshmallow/butter mixture over popped popcorn. Stir to coat evenly.
Step 6: Rub a small amount of butter on your hands to prevent the popcorn from sticking. Scoop out a handful of popcorn and squeeze into oval shaped balls. Place on cutting board or serving dish.

Bonus: for added fun (and flavor!) add m&m’s or nuts to the mix before pouring on the marshmallow batter -or- drizzle chocolate on top once eggs are formed!
