We started this new tradition of a Family Movie Night every week. My son is almost two and my daughter three-and-a-half. It is so much fun, we all snuggle up on the couch, put our phones away and watch a new movie together.
Sometimes we put a little table in the living room and order in pizza or take-out food and enjoy dinner and a movie. But more often (and to save my living room floor) we eat at the table then have a snack during movie time.
What makes a family movie night awesome?
This week we had the chance to review Orville Redenbachers White Cheddar and Caramel popcorn for free from Influenster. It was so much fun. Neither of the kids had tried caramel popcorn before, and my son hadn’t really had much popcorn yet at all. We all snuggled up to watch Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and munch on some popcorn while we watched the movie. Although the caramel was by far my favourite, it does taste good in the same mouthful as a white cheddar, seriously, try them both in one bite, it’s tasty. My kids polished off the whole bag with us, my son didn’t even watch the movie, just turned his chair towards the popcorn bowl to snack on it.
I forgot a lot from Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer from when I was a kid, they are MEAN to him! Even Santa. It is sad to watch with kids and my daughter is so sensitive she notices and wants to know why everyone is so mean to Rudolph. She found the Abominable Snowman to be a little scary though. But we all enjoyed the movie and popcorn and snuggles. And the kids go to bed later so anything that delays bedtime is fine by them!
What are your favourite movies to watch during family movie night?
What movie’s to watch?
We have done all the Land Before Times, almost all Disney movies, starting Ice Age, and are now focussing on Christmas movies. It is my favourite night of the week when I can snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie with my family. Sometimes I can even knit if both kids are snuggling with daddy. Maybe I will finish my daughters hat before the end of winter.
There is something about watching classic Christmas movies that you grew up with, with your own children, by the light of the tree and keeping the magic of Christmas alive. Next up, maybe Frosty the Snowman with some eggnog!
Other snack ideas:
- Fresh popped popcorn
- Hot Chocolate
- Warm Milk
- Anything that is a special treat and fun to eat! Bonus if it isn’t too messy so your floors don’t suffer.
