A few years ago, I had one of those “Mother of the Year” moments. My son wanted to join an after-school robotics club, I agreed and didn’t think much of it after that. For months he would walk out of the house with servos and other electronic gadgets tucked under his arm, and I would just wave as he went by.

Why We Love Big Hero 6
One day in late Spring, he came home and said, “Mom, we won”… Um, you won what?? (still only half listening) “A scholarship” … me… “wait for a second what???” Now I was listening. He then proceeded to tell me that their Robot had won a regional competition and was on its way to a possible berth in the national one. I had NO idea 1) that it was that big of a deal or 2) that he had a talent for building robots. Like I said, “mother of the year.”
Needless to say, when Big Hero 6 came out in theaters last year, he got a big group of kids together to go and see it. My “too cool for everything” teenager was not apparently too cool for movies about fellow teenage robot builders. Let’s just say we all fell in love with the robot Baymax in the film.
Fast forward to now. It’s cold. It won’t stop snowing. We had a whole week off of school. We need entertainment (I mean, how many times can you walk around the mall in circles??). That fictional city of San Fransokyo is looking pretty good right now.
Luckily Big Hero 6 came out this week; we went and bought it the day it came out at Target, and I decided it was time for a family movie night.
To put a little bit of “fun” into our family movie night (and to make it so that the kids would invite some friends over), I designed a set of printable popcorn buckets inspired by the high tech heroes of Big Hero 6.

What’s Included in the Printable
- Black White Stripe Back Popcorn Box
- Red White Stripe Back Popcorn Box
- 3 Different Front Pieces with text inspired by the movie; “Low Battery Must Recharge”, “It’s Only an Expression”, Hello, My Name Is”
There are 5 printables in all that you can use to make your own popcorn treat boxes. Just print them on cardstock (I used textured cardstock; I think it looks so much nicer).
How to Assemble the Boxes
Cut them out, score along the straight lines and glue them together. You need a front and a back piece for each box. There are red stripe backs, and black stripe backs, and 3 different front designs to choose from.
The quotes on the boxes were all inspired by the movie; they would be great for a Big Hero 6 themed birthday party or just for a fun family movie night. Just add some popcorn, treats, and sodas, and you’ve got a party!
