Family movie night is kind of a big at our house. Now that school is well underway we are slowly falling back into our fall routine. Hockey practices and games, gymnastics and paddling still take up a lot of our time but we always make time for family movie night. It is easy to snuggle on the couch with the family on these cooler nights and enjoy a great show or movie.
I am freshening up my family’s routine and get the kids excited about our next movie night. 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 too!
Dress the part.
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.
Netflix & Snack.
Don’t forget the snacks! We like to prepare the snacks together as a family. It is so easy to chat and connect while preparing food. Here are fun suggestions for your next Netflix family movie night.
