Who loves a fabulous family movie night? My kids LOVE when we create a special family movie night! Our key ingredients for any successful movie night for the kids are pretty simple – just 3 easy steps!
Tips for a Successful Family Movie Night
1. Popcorn popcorn popcorn!
It’s always ALL about the popcorn in our house during a movie.
2. Read the book first if one is available in a children’s edition.
Kids love repetition and predictability, so this helps my kids anticipate the plot and handle the more exciting or nerve wracking elements of any movie given deep down they have a sense of the outcome.
3. Watch Trailers in Advance. Lots of them1!
Again, it goes without saying that kids love repetition. Knowing what to expect before the movie starts helps them get excited to see the full movie and get to know the characters and various scenes of a film in advance.
