Madagascar Party Helps With Madagascar 3 Anticipation

If you have kids, you have undoubtedly seen that Madagascar 3 will be in theaters next week. Kids and adults are crazy for Madagascar and mine are no different. Who wouldn't want to see this movie? Just check out this trailer!

Recently we had the opportunity to host a Madagascar Movie Viewing Party sponsored by Children's Claritin for 5 moms and their kiddies in anticipation of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, which will hit theaters nationwide on June 8, 2012.

We love Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo and love hosting parties for friends. The hardest part for us was narrowing down from our massively cool friend list. All the kids were excited, thinking they were coming to see Madagascar 3. As if! I have friends in high places but that would be like winning the lottery. It was fine, they took it in stride and had a great time. With a day off from school (we had extra snow days, that were never used), the kids were excited to see their friends in a relaxed setting on a Friday.

With 5 moms and 9 kids the house was hopping, the popcorn was popping and the movie was rocking! We all watched the movies, ate lunch, popcorn and set up a date to see the movie as a group. We can't wait to see Madagascar 3! This year, the dynamic group is still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar style.

Handsome and friend were the only boys willing to come out of the fort for pictures.  Couldn't thank them enough. Such good boys in a slew of chaos! Thanks guys! Mwah!

And, as you can see...Goddess couldn't be bothered. Never went in the fort because she wanted to watch but wouldn't look at me either. She has watched Madagascar 1 & 2 three times since Friday. In fact, she watched them right after the house cleared out too!

The moms all agree that their favorite part of the party, "beside spending time with you'll" as one mom stated was watching the kids who have been friends since preschool, lie in the living room talking about the movie together. It is nice when everyone is friends!

All the kids walked away with their popcorn soaked containers and the mom's dug into the Claritin samples and coupons provided on the table. 

I love being part of the Claritin Mom Crew and was thrilled to be a host for such a fun party! Thanks Claritin!
