I love getting fun opportunities to share new family friendly movies with you. This blog post is part of a partnership with SocialMoms and Norm of the North blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
On January 15th Norm of the North hits movie theaters. This great film is rated PG so the entire family can kick back and enjoy! I love finding a good family friendly film that I can take the kids to the theaters to see. It is so much fun to enjoy a day of giggles, and snacks.
So what is Norm of the North About?
With help from his furry sidekicks, a polar bear (Rob Schneider) travels to New York to stop a maniacal
A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do… he heads to New York City to stop it. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.
Here just check out the trailer!
I wanted to kick up the “bear” excitement in my house so we whipped up these yummy Polar Bear Paw Cupcakes! These turned out so much better than I expected and they are so easy to make! The kids had a blast helping me make them…and eat them!
We made cupcakes using a box mix. You can also use this Homemade Cake Mix, they turn out AMAZING! I mixed in some blue food coloring to make the cupcakes look like the arctic ocean water! I followed the directions on the mix to bake the cupcakes.
When the cupcakes were baked and cooled we iced them with some white vanilla frosting. Then immediately dipped them into a bowl of shredded coconut, for Polar Bear fur of course. Finally we topped the cupcakes with a store bought chocolate sandwich cookie and some chocolate covered raisins to make the paw prints! Super Simple!
I still can’t get over how super duper cute these Polar Bear Paw cupcakes turned out!
