An Epic Outdoor Adventure Party: Swimming, Dirt Cups, a Birthday and an #EpicParty


This past weekend we had a fun movie screening right in our own home!

Have you heard of the movie Epic?

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was offered the chance to throw an #EpicParty in my home with my friends and family.

Since my nephew was turning 6, we decided to do a joint birthday/Epic movie screening extravaganza!

We had the kids snuggle up on the couches with some buttery popcorn while my husband figured out how to hook my laptop up to the big TV (I was given a Digital HD download of the movie, and we knew watching on my laptop would have been a bit uncomfortable for this large crowd!). They each grabbed a big stuffed animal and got ready for the Epic Movie premiere!

Later, we went on a fun nature hunt! The kids loved using magnifying glasses to catch creatures in the back yard. We had fun little “traps” for the creatures that had magnified lids. They were so neat!

The kids also got to do a little gardening with these fun little Epic gardening cups. The cups came with a small disc of dirt and a packet of basil seeds. They had a blast adding the water to the cups and seeing the soil expand!

I know they are all excited about seeing their seeds grow, and I’m personally excited about having fresh basil in our backyard 😉 .

Next it was on to dirt cups (pudding, crushed oreos and gummy worms!) and of course birthday cake and ice cream for the birthday boy!

Of course, you know we had to jump in the pool in this August Texas heat!

We had a fun Epic Party outdoor adventure and you can do the same!

Remember you can grab Epic on Blu-Ray/DVD on August 20th!

What would you do at your own Epic Party outdoor adventure?
