One of my favorite family activities is to do movie night, and one of my favorite things to watch on family movie night are classic Disney films that I enjoyed as a child and that I can now enjoy with my own kids.
Robin Hood is one of those films. It’s such a great story, and the characters are big hits with my girls (Lady Cluck is their favorite!).
Did you know that Robin Hood is available to view any time you like on Netflix Instant? It’s true! Earlier this week we watched it together, but to make the viewing party a bit more fun, I made a meal that coordinated with the movie! It was EASY, everyone! I promise! 🙂
In the Disney version of this classic tale, Robin Hood and Little John make a tasty stew in the woods, which inspired the beef stew I put together in the slow cooker. Here’s a recipe to try if you need some inspiration.
The Rabbit family is seen eating some gruel, and so I made small amounts of watered down oatmeal as part of dinner, too (no sugar or any flavoring added, at all). Surprisingly, the girls ate every bit of the gruel! Ha!
And Maid Marian throws a pie at Prince John during a fun scene in the film, and that means that pie must be had! I kept things simple for me and just purchased a pie, but you could certainly make one from scratch if you are so inclined.
Finally, I added chocolate gold coins to the presentation since those gold coins come up again and again in the movie. If I had been a bit more clever I would have given them to the girls and then taken them away citing overdue taxes. Ha!
Do you have any other recipe suggestions or other fun ideas for making a viewing of Robin Hood even more fun for the family? I’d love to hear!
