I love, love, love movie-night at home with the family! It's relaxing, inexpensive, entertaining and I get to snuggle with my kiddos. And it doesn't hurt that my kids inherited my fabulous taste of movies - so lots of action and superheroes! With the reboot of Fantastic Four being released this upcoming August I decided to throw a Fantastic Four Friday Movie Night for our family, where we could watch the Fantastic Four films that were released in the mid 2000s and get excited for the upcoming film release. All I had to do was mention a Marvel superhero movie for the whole family to get amped! To add a special touch to our at-home movie night I created a DIY Superhero Serving Tray to serve our mandatory movie-time finger foods on.{because our movie-nights ALWAYS include fantastic finger foods!}

Let's get started with this DIY Superhero Serving Tray - I am so excited to be sharing it with you! First, find a comic book that you don't mind destroying. I know this is blasphemy and that it may be emotional for all my superhero fans out there to cut-apart a perfectly good comic book/graphic novel - but just remember that it is going to be used for a serving tray that can be used everyday. Every. Day.

Next, take apart the comic book to remove the pages with amazing artwork that you'd want on a serving tray. {I pulled out way more pages than necessary because they are all amazing!}

Then cut-out the artwork that you like. Scissors work, but a paper cutter is much faster. I had enough artwork for 3 trays at this point - but it was nice to have the selection to choose from!

Finally, using a glue stick {yes, a glue stick!} adhere all of the artwork into place in the bottom of a galvanized tray. Let it dry completely. Completely. Then brush on a clear gloss decoupage medium {making sure to follow the application instructions on the package}.

Of course I needed something fantastic to serve on the new Superhero Serving Tray for our Fantastic Four Friday Night! Our whole family loves sauces and the foods that can be dipped into them, so I picked out four of our family's favorite dips and served them alongside popcorn chicken and chicken fries.

To save time on our movie-time snacks, I picked up a couple bags of Tyson® Any'Tizers® {while at Walmart, picking up that galvanized steel serving tray!}. They offer easy-to-prepare, frozen snacks in an assortment of varieties and flavors inlcuding Chicken Fries, Popcorn Chicken, Buffalo Boneless Wyngz and Honey BBQ Boneless Wyngz. I like that Tyson® Any'Tizers® are protein-packed and made with all white-meat, while my kids love that they are finger-sized and perfect for dipping into their favorite sauces.

Right now at Walmart {exclusively}, if you purchase two {2} bags of Tyson® Any'Tizers® you get a ticket to see the reboot of Fantastic Four that is being released this August. It's an easy-peezy three-step process:

Step 1: Buy - Buy 2 participating Tyson® Any'Tizers® products at Walmart between 6/15/15 and 8/15/15.
