Monster Family 2 movie hit theaters in October. It's now Available Everywhere On Digital and On Demand January 4, 2022! Personally, my family loved this movie! I won't spoil surprises, but I will share that the whimsical features of this movie such as the family members transforming into monsters and working together in fun ways makes this movie feel magical.

As a mom, I love that this movie has a theme of how no one is perfect.  There is so much pressure on kids today that I really appreciated the positive messaging in this movie and that they did it in a way that connected with my children. I think that every family should enjoy this movie on a Family Movie Night!

Now that I've told you about the movie, let me share an easy Monster Family-themed dinner idea -- Yeti Rice that pairs perfect with your favorite take-out orange chicken, beef and broccoli, tofu, beans, or other entrees that you typically eat with rice!

Recipe: Yeti Rice


  • 1/2 cup of prepared Jasmine rice
  • 2 candy eyes (typically available in the frosting section of grocery stores)
  • 1 sesame stick
  • 1 shallow cup or small bowl
1. Pack the rice into the cup so that it is tightly packed.

2. Use a spatula or spoon to slightly loosen the packed rice from the cup and turn the cup upside down to place the packed rice on a plate.

3. Add the candy eyes by pressing them into the rice.

4. Add the sesame stick as the mouth by pressing it into the rice.

5. Surround the Yeti rice with your favorite take-out food such as orange chicken!

Let me also share a couple of activity sheets to add to your Family Movie Night! The first is a "spot the difference" activity sheet.

The next activity is a fun cut out mask to color!

We hope that you enjoy this whimsical movie, dinner idea, and activities!
