Settling in with popcorn, blankets and comfy PJs — the regimen for family movie night has become second nature. Freshen up your family’s routine and get the kids excited about your next movie night at home. With the ever-growing family catalogue on Netflix, paired with any of the easy themed recommendations below, your next movie night will be getting a five star rating!
Here’s some tips from Netflix for a fabulous family movie night:
Dress the part.
It’s time to adorn your favourite tiara, just like Tiana who graces the screen in The Princess and The Frog. You could also sail right into family movie night wearing a red bandana like Captain Jack Sparrow!
Play it up.
Squash any antsy pants during the show with this Netflix family movie night bingo game. It’s easy to use – just print a card for each family member and try to spot the things or actions which commonly happen in movies (i.e. shopping, crying, magic, etc). Mark off your squares and the first one to get “BINGO” (a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line), wins! You can also create your own show specific bingo card using the blank template.
Set the scene.
Gather all your stuffed animals and huddle in to watch Zootopia on September 20th with every furry friend living under your roof. Or, string lights across your living room to recreate the magical lantern scene in Tangled.
Have you guys seen the new Disney collection on Netflix? Honestly… I am so excited by it! Sure… I own almost every single title on DVD but … I don’t have to deal with finding them and then the kids scratching them and losing them etc… Netflix is so much easier. There are other titles too, not just the ones above. We’ve watched so much Inside Out and the Good Dinosaur… I pretty much know both line for line.
