Paddington Bear holds a special place in my heart, and from the time we shared family movie night with the PADDINGTON film, my family has adored this very special bear, too! Thanks to my partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures, and the new PADDINGTON 2 movie (in theaters January 12,) we have even more to love and super-fun coloring sheets, a delicious marmalade mix and an extra-special giveaway to share with you!
As it’s always precious “family date” time for us, I always try to make movie-time special. Whether it’s creating a fantastic snack or meal to eat during family movie night or gathering together activities for my children to do while we are waiting to see a favorite film, they always appreciate the little bit of extra that makes our time together truly magical!
Share the trailer with your family and then use the ideas below to inspire some family-time fun in your home this week!
About PADDINGTON 2
Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.
While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

Marmalade Mix Recipe inspired by PADDINGTON 2
Every smart bear knows it’s wise to carry a marmalade sandwich! If you’d rather not take the change of having a mushy sandwich or a sticky pocket, I’ve created a tasty Marmalade Mix for you to bring along on your journeys or to enjoy during family reading or movie nights.
1 cup honey graham teddy bear cookies
1 cup yogurt covered cranberries (or cranberry-raisins)
1/2 cup orange slice candies
Cut orange slice candies into six (6) equal pieces. In a small box, gently mix ingredients together until equally distributed. Serve and enjoy.
When you put a honey graham together with the tart yogurt covered cranberry and the sweet orange slice candy, it mimics a delicious marmalade sandwich!
