Family Movie Night Success With These 5 Tips
There aren’t many more ways to spend time together as a family that are easier than arranging a family movie night!
1. Pick a family-friendly movie
You definitely want to make sure everyone will have fun watching the movie that you pick! It’s a great idea to let everyone pick a movie each week. That way, everyone gets a chance to choose and you will get to watch a wide variety of movies the kids will love!
How can you possibly have a movie night without popcorn?! Every family seems to have a favorite kind and style, so grab some and get busy! Our family loves to go the old-fashioned route and use an air-popper, but Story Of Five went with microwave popcorn, which is great, too!
3. Popcorn Toppings!
Plain popcorn is yummy, but how much more fun can it be to add some toppings to the mix, too?! Story of Five likes to add in pretzels, marshmallows, sprinkles and chocolate morsels, and the kids get to mix-and-match as they choose! Or, just choose simple butter and salt. Whatever the family likes!
4. Movie Sign
How fun would it be to create a little movie sign to make things even more “movie night perfect”! Have the kids help create a sign saying what the movie is going to be and what time the movie is starting. What a fun way to get the kids pumped up for a night with the family!
5. Invite Others
Every once in awhile, why not add more to the mix? The more the merrier, right?! Once in awhile, maybe the kids can invite a friend over and you can even have a pajama party. Or Grandma and Grandpa can come over for a night and enjoy the family event, too! Whatever you want, mix things up to keep them fun and exciting!
