Captain Underpants Movie Night Ideas with Free Printables

My daughter is a bookworm and really enjoys reading the Captain Underpants series. When we first heard about Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, we couldn't wait to see it. We went to the local drive-in to see it a few months ago and absolutely loved it! We are counting down the days until we own it on DVD (September 12th!) and have a fun movie night at home!

If you are new to the world of Captain Underpants, rest assured that it is not just a bunch of crude humor. With the incredible voice talent like Kevin Hart (George) and Ed Helms (Captain Underpants and Mr. Krupp), it's a fun and light-hearted story of the great friendship between Harold and George and their connection through a love of writing and creativity told with outrageous humor that even gets parents laughing.

Snacks are must-have for movie nights. At our Captain Underpants movie night at home, we are incorporating the best sidekicks: Pop Secret popcorn and Lance crackers found at Walmart!

Popcorn is the most "pop"ular snack to enjoy with a movie, and is a delicious, high-quality snack with a great buttery taste that you can feel good about sharing with your family. Crackers are also a fun snack to share! With real peanut butter (or real cheese) sandwiched between crispy baked crackers, up to 5 grams of protein, and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance sandwich crackers are a tasty and satisfying snack solution for family movie night! They're also flavorful, wholesome, filling and portable, so any extras you have will go great in lunch boxes.

To add a little bit of Captain Underpants pizzazz, I decided to dress up our popcorn for the occasion! It's super easy to do, and it tastes amazing!! Pop a bag of Pop Secret butter popcorn according to package directions. Pour it out on a cookie sheet and carefully pick out any un-popped kernels.

Place about 20 red candy melt wafers into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 1 minute. Stir to help distribute the heat, and cook for an additional 30 seconds until all of the wafers have melted. Carefully pour the candy melt into a baggie and cut the corner off. Drizzle the red deliciousness over the popcorn. Immediately top with red sugar sprinkles to give a bit of sparkle and extra crunch!

Let the popcorn cool while you assemble some awesome Captain Underpants printable popcorn/snack boxes!!

Next, use a ruler and a scoring tool to score all of the dotted lines. Carefully fold the paper along the score lines and make a crisp crease.

Use some glue, double-sided tape, or a tape runner and add some stickiness to the tab on the left side of the popcorn box template.

Carefully bring both ends of the box together. Line up the edges and place the tab underneath the opposite end of the template. Press well and hold in place until it is stuck together well.

Last, but most importantly, assemble the bottom of the box. Fold in the "U" shaped side first, then place the opposite tab through it. Then fold in both of the side tabs. I've shared the images above so you can see both the bottom and the inside of the box when it's assembled.

Now that the popcorn has cooled and the candy melt has set, it needs to be broken up so that it can be easily shared with the whole family! Carefully pick up some of the popcorn, and separate it into single or a couple of attached popcorn pieces. Try not to handle it too much since your hands will be warm enough to melt the topping!

Now that the popcorn is ready, you can package it in the boxes for your guests! The oils from the popcorn will leave marks on the cardstock. So to prevent that from happening, I put the pieces of popcorn into clear favor bags and tied the top closed with some red jute twine. To go along with the popcorn, I'm also going to put a package of crackers in each treat box for guests to enjoy. Now our snacks will be in one convenient and personalized-size box while we watch the movie!

Another fun idea for a movie night is to play bingo!! This Captain Underpants Bingo includes all of your favorite characters, including Captain Underpants (of course), George, Harold, as well as a few new ones you might not recognize yet if you haven't seen the movie! The bingo set includes ten bingo cards, so it's easy to print and use for parties. It's fun for every age to play. The calling cards also include the names of the characters in case you don't know who they are.

(Set includes 10 bingo cards and calling cards in a single PDF file)

The blank set works a little differently. You get one bingo card with empty spaces (except for the "free" spot). Then print and cut out the bingo pieces so you can assemble the bingo cards yourself! Just glue the pieces in place and you're ready to play!

This is a great option for little hands that want to be creative, or if you have a larger group of people and don't want multiple cards that are the same. The blank bingo set includes all the same characters as the full set, but you can create your own bingo card setup.

(Set includes one blank bingo card, bingo pieces, and calling cards in a single PDF file)

Game Instructions
1. Pick some kind of object to mark your squares (popcorn, candy, glass gems, buttons, etc)
2. Give each player a bingo card and markers (or put your own card together with the blank set).
3. Have each player put a marker over the free space.
4. Have one person choose a calling card and say it out loud. Each player will cover that item on their card with a marker.
5. Once a player has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), call out "BINGO!" and win the game!

Some things you should know before downloading:
*Artsy-Fartsy Mama printables are for PERSONAL USE ONLY (classroom, home, libraries, etc).
*You may NOT modify, re-sell, redistribute, or claim the design as your own.
*Please do not remove the credits/watermarks.
*If you'd like to share this printable, credit must be given to Artsy-Fartsy Mama & linked back to this post.

To lengthen the life of the prints, I would recommend printing the bingo cards and calling cards on cardstock. All sets are 8.5x11 inches and combined in a single PDF format.
