I grew up watching Nickelodeon. My favorites were Clarissa Explains It All, Hey Dude, and Double Dare. Then when the twins were little their favorite show was Blue’s Clues. And now they love watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Plus they are finally old enough to have fun together watching the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards coming up on March 28th (8pm EST).
All awards watching needs some special snacks, and we’re going to go with an orange theme! A savory popcorn (cheddar cheese) and a sweet popcorn (orange chocolate).
I started with two big batches of plain popped popcorn. For the cheddar cheese popcorn I drizzled the popcorn with some melted butter and then sprinkled a cheddar cheese packet that I swiped from a box of mac and cheese. (You could also use cheddar cheese powder if your store carries it, mine didn’t.) Then shake in a large paper bag to coat the pieces evenly.
For the dessert popcorn, I melted some orange chocolate melts and then poured them over some plain popcorn in a different paper bag. Again, shake to evenly coat all the pieces of popcorn.
I’m going to serve our popcorn in these green paper sacks. And we can even turn our popcorn eating into a contest. Whichever popcorn has less remaining at the end of the night is our Kids Choice popcorn winner.
For the drinks I picked up some Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters at Walmart. To make a really easy slushy toss a few Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters in the freezer. (And you can look for a special Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters Kids’ Choice Awards display at Walmart!)
Then when they are nearly frozen pull them out, cut the top off, and you can eat them with a spoon! You could also pour them into some fun orange bottles.
While most awards shows have a red carpet, the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards features an orange carpet. So I decided we need our very own orange carpet. I put ours together with felt and some orange tape.
The carpet is ready to lead us all into the living room for our television watching. We even have an orange couch we can sit on to watch the show!
I’ve shared our excitement about Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters and the Kids’ Choice Awards. I’d love to hear about your plans for the perfect watch party! Leave a comment letting me know what you’re looking forward to during this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards.
