A Party with Peter Rabbit

Last week, on Beatrix Potter's birthday we took our very own Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail along to a Peter Rabbit Party at the Lookout in Hyde Park to celebrate the release of the new Peter Rabbit Movie on DVD with Sony Pics At Home. We saw the film at the cinema and the girls loved it so we were really excited to go to this special screening.

Ellie meeting Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit himself was there to meet us when we arrived which was really special and thanks to Cini Mini Film Club there were lots of activities for the children to enjoy before the film which really brought it to life for the children.

The girls adored meeting some of the animals that feature in the film including rabbits, ducklings. chicks, goats and even a little hedgehog!

Next the girls filled little terracotta plant pots with soil and then decorated them with rabbit ears and a pom pom tail before planting a little sunflower seed, which are now growing beautifully on our kitchen windowsill.

The girls painting and colouring in the garden

One of their favourite areas was the art station where they spent ages painting in the gardens, where we also found Peter's jacket. The setting was just wonderful and it felt like we had entered mr McGregor's garden.

It was then time to settle down and watch the film on beanbags with an incredibly cute basket filled with popcorn, little felt vegetables, glowsticks, gardening tools, seeds and a little bug explorer pot.

If you haven't seen the Peter Rabbit movie yet we'd really recommend it. I adored the Beatrix Potter stories as a child and love reading them with my own children now; the film is a really good modern adaptation of one of our favourite tales. It's a film the whole family can enjoy with a great storyline, lots of catchy songs and lots of funny moments too. It really engages the girls and they happily watch it all the way through, it's definitely a new favourite of ours which we will watch time and time again.

You can buy the film on DVD now, it's perfect for a family movie afternoon at home during the holidays or on rainy days, you could even hold your own Peter Rabbit Party!
