LAIKA’s much anticipated film about a family of mischievous, box-wearing, dumpster-diving creatures debuts in theaters this weekend. In honor of the theatrical release of The Boxtrolls, I’m sharing my favorite The Boxtrolls printables, recipes, and crafts.
With Halloween just one month away, I’m already thinking about what types of treats I’ll be making for my kids’ school and sports’ parties. Inspired by the characters in the film, Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie created a box-tastic recipe for Boxtrolls Cookie Pops. She even includes a tutorial and printable for Boxtrolls Outfits. You can download the recipe and free printable template here!
If you follow me on Twitter (or any one of my social media channels), you might have seen that we’ve already started celebrating Halloween. Since we’re still waiting on costumes, we pulled out last year’s for a Ninja and Rapunzel redux. Throughout Disneyland, we saw a number of children dressed up as Boxtrolls and as you can imagine, my son is already talking about which Boxtroll costume he wants me to make! Fortunately, this easy tutorial will show you how to make your very own Boxtrolls Halloween Costume. You can also visit download official artwork to “authenticize” your costume here.
If you have already built your own Boxtrolls creation, share it via your social media channels using the hashtag #TheBoxtrollsCC. The winning creation could win an Imagination Box Prize valued at $5,000!
