Throw an Awesome Jungle Themed Movie Night with our Coconut Punch Drink for Kids!



We’re so excited about the upcoming release of Disney’s The Jungle Book that we decided to put together a fun Coconut Punch virgin drink for kids to celebrate! If you haven’t heard the buzz about the latest live-action rendition of Rudyard Kipling’s classic, you’re in for a treat. Disney’s The Jungle Book brings all our favorite characters to life, literally. From the lovable free-spirited Baloo (voiced by Bill Murray) to the hypnotic, somewhat nefarious Kaa (voice by Scarlett Johansson), it’s definitely going to be a wild ride!


Get kids excited about the live-action release by having a jungle-themed movie night! Queue up the animated version of The Jungle Book, serve popcorn in safari hats and wash it down with our yummy coconut punch drink for kids! Let’s check it out!

Jungle Snack Ideas

Aside from serving popcorn in safari hats (lined with paper towels), the Jungle Book is actually a great theme for incorporating healthy snacks into your movie night! Make it a learning experience by researching the different animals with your kids and finding out what they eat. Now, I don’t think you’ll be incorporating anything from Kaa’s diet into the mix, but how about one of our favorite berry recipes to eat more like Baloo? We all know King Louie LOVES bananas, right? Start with our granola snack mix and incorporate dried banana slices and other “jungle-themed” fruits and nuts into it.

This granola snack mix is easy to customize into a Jungle Snack for your Jungle Book movie night!

Jungle Movie Marathon

If you want to make it a whole marathon night, a few other fun jungle-themed movies include Disneynature’s Chimpanzee, Madagascar and Jungle 2 Jungle. Check out our favorite good family movies about animals or movies about nature for more ideas.

Get Crafty!

Craft a Jungle with Our Cardboard Critters craft for kids, perfect for a Jungle Book movie night!

Whip up a few of our super easy and cute Jungle Cardboard Critters so your kids can continue the fun after the movie ends. Another great craft idea that your kids can actually eat: these Madagascar Orange Lions!


The great thing about the Jungle Book and a jungle-themed movie night: you can go in SO many directions! Of course, you can just whip up our delicious coconut punch drink for kids, kick back and watch the movie! Whatever you decide to do, as long as you’re spending time together it will be fun!
