Fall is officially here and while it still feels pretty much like summer around here, the nights are getting chillier and the days are soon to follow I am sure. Summer was fun but now it’s back to the usual routine which means we need to make the extra effort to set aside some family time to bond when the daily grind comes to an end.
Fall is the perfect time to start new family traditions for years to come. Gather round this season to pop some corn, cozy up on the couch under a blanket and screen your family’s favourite movies on Netflix.
Get the kids excited and make family viewing more fun anytime by incorporating the following activities:
- Set up a popcorn bar with crowd-pleasing candy toppings – M&M’s, Swedish Berries and pretzels are our favourite additions!
- Turn your kids into movie critics by encouraging critical thinking and verbal expression. After the credits roll, ask questions about the movie and let them tell their own story.
- Get movin’ and dance! After sitting and lounging through your family’s favourite picks, take some time to turn up the soundtrack at the end of the show, jump off the couch with your kids and bust a move!
With a great new line-up of titles hitting the service this month, Netflix has created a list of must-see family classics below.
Which of these do you plan to catch this fall? I think I’ll be watching some titles with the girls I know they will love – Lilo & Stitch, Shark Tale and Homeward Bound. I’m also excited to see some favourite Disney movies make an appearance too – Princess and the Frog, The Aristocats and The Rescuers.
