Polar Express Movie Night Hot
There are many popular holiday movies that are played this time of the year, but there is one in particular that inspired this week’s Resident Event! Let’s plan a Polar Express Movie Night!
Schedule an evening in the clubhouse (or theatre room if your property has one) and invite the kids and their parents to board the Polar Express! On your flyer, the heading should read, “All Aboard!” or use this great image which has elements from the movie:

In the movie, the kids need a golden ticket to board the Polar Express which goes to the North Pole. When you send out the flyer/invitation attach a “Golden Ticket” that your guests must bring with them so they feel really excited about coming! You can print them at your office if you have a color printer, or put several on a page and send them to a local print store.

Throughout the movie, the kids also stayed in their pajamas while they rode the Polar Express, so on your flyer, encourage the kids to wear their pajamas and maybe even bring a blanket so they really get into the spirit of the movie.
Grab a big bag of popcorn and some juice boxes for the kids’ refreshments. Other treats like candy canes or holiday inspired cookies are optional, depending on the size of the crowd you are expecting and the ages of the kids.
This should be a very easy and inexpensive event to plan but very enjoyable for the kids and the parents in your community!
