Looking for some inspiring ways to make family movie night fun and extra special? Below you will find ideas for enjoying movie night with your family without leaving your home! A big thank you to our friends at Netflix for sponsoring today’s creative ideas for family fun. Netflix streaming makes it easy and affordable to enjoy a great family movie night right from your own living room!
Here are some of our favorite ways to make family movie night fun:
1. Make Popcorn
According to my kids, making popcorn is pretty much a mandatory requirement for movie night. To make popcorn extra special, try serving it up in these adorable popcorn bags!
2. Make a Sign
A sheet of a paper or a chalkboard announcing what is “Now Showing” and at what time is a great finishing touch!
3. Pretend Ticket Booth
A small table set up with paper tickets, play money, and a calculator or play cash register is all you need. Added bonus — Sneak in a little learning about counting money or giving proper change!
4. Invite Friends
For a more authentic movie-going experience, why not invite a few friends over to join in the fun? Have each guest bring their favorite blanket, pillow, or stuffed animal friend.
5. Select a Family Friendly Movie
Choose a movie the entire family will enjoy, or take turns selecting the flick so everyone has a chance to pick a favorite to watch together.
Some of our personal favorites for family movie night are:
- The Croods
- Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away
- The Dark Crystal
- The Secret of Kells
- James and the Giant Peach
