Kung Fu Panda 3 Party- #KFP3BlockParty

My family and I enjoy watching movies, and we're always excited when we get the chance to review them.  The excitement went to a whole new level when I was able to review a film with many more by hosting a Kung Fu Panda 3 Movie Party.
 
KUNG FU PANDA 3 AWESOME EDITION is now available on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD June 28th.  I received a screener copy and watched the family-friendly film with several of my family and friends at my home.  I've watched the first two Kung Fu Panda movies and the third one is just as great.

Kung Fu Panda 3 takes Po to a secret village after being reunited with his long-lost father.  He befriends several while he is there.  But Kai, the villain, challenges all the Kung Fu masters across China and it's up to Po to train other pandas to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.

Although there are scenes of fighting in this movie, it is mild and didn't scare any of the younger children.  The plot centers around mastering the art of chi, otherwise known as a life force or energy.  It also centers around Po learning that he must be himself and believe that he can become a great Dragon Warrior.  The animation is superb and the character interaction is fun to watch.  There were some moments of humor that found us laughing out loud.  I liked Kung Fu Panda 3 as well as the first two films and, from the audience's reaction, everyone else seemed to like it too.

Before the party started, guests were given goody bags with favors that included glow sticks, foam masks, character keychains, popcorn, and cookies.  While we waited around for everyone to arrive, kids were able to draw and color on Kung Fu Panda activity sheets.

We also played several games that were centered around the film.  The kids enjoyed playing Bingo, trivia, and more for the chance to win prizes. 

We had close to 40 people of all ages in attendance and everyone had a blast.  It was a fun and entertaining way to spend a summer evening.

I remember when Kung Fu Panda originally came out and it was such a hit! My dad actually got the DVD for us from China when he was there on a trip for work. Looks like you guys had such a fun party!
