It can be easy and inexpensive to plan a movie night. A lot of stuff can be found at DollarTree! If you get everyone involved it is even more fun. When we go to the movie theater, we all have our favorite treats that we like to get. Personally, I love a box of Junior Mints. Some people love Milk Duds or Mike and Ike's. Popcorn is a must! You can pop it in advance and bag it in some cute bags or get reusable plastic popcorn containers like these that you can use for every Family Movie Night. If you don't want to go with sodas, you can always whip up some smoothies or other juices as a special treat.
- Right now, we are loving all of the Marvel movies! I got a late start on these, so Maddy has been educating me on them. Infinity War was actually the first one I saw, so I have had to go backwards and watch earlier ones to really know what is going are and who the people are. Today we watched the first Iron Man together! (I had already seen End Game.) I have enjoyed every minute of these movies!
- In the past, we have re-watched series movies, like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Hunger Games over a period of a few weeks. Everyone has loved them. Doing this gets everyone excited for the next movie night to see the next movie in the series.
- Old favorites are always great to go back to. I love to share some of the Disney movies I have loved since my childhood, like In Search of the Castaways and Swiss Family Robinson.
- Depending on your kid's ages, some quirky comedies can be awesome. We have always loved The Gods Must Be Crazy and our son introduced us to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Clue and Murder by Death are timeless. Maddy adores Austinland. Having a daughter who is a lawyer, I have to mention Legally Blond.
Have a great weekend!
