March Break is here! And if you haven’t signed your kids up for a full-day, week-long camp, you are probably trying to fill in five days with some fun activities that your kids (and you) will love. So why not catch a movie? It seems pretty standard, but going to the cinema or having a movie night/day at home can be a lot of fun!
I asked the littlest ones in our family for their recommendations. Since we’re a popcorn and Twizzler lovin’ kind of family here are a few that are worth checking out when you need some down time.
THE LITTLE PRINCE: Based on the classic children’s book by French author, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, this treasure of a story is now updated and given a big screen full experience of rich and beautiful scenes. The original story, that we should add was appealing to adults as well, was about a boy who falls to earth from an astroid. Now, rewritten as a modern day story about a young girl (Mackenzie Foy) who lives in a very grown-up world with her mother (Rachel McAdams) who tries to prepare her for it. Her neighbour, the Aviator (Jeff Bridges), introduces the girl to an world where anything is possible, the world of the Little Prince (Riley Osborne).
There are times when we can’t get out to the theatre and we’ve already started planning out a few sleepover viewing nights with friends, popcorn and all! Here’s what we’ve got on our at-home Netflix List!
LEGO BIONICLE and LEGO FRIENDS are two new shows that just launched exclusively to Netflix. For sure the little ones in our family still love creating with their Lego. Now the adventures continue with no shortage of action and fun both on screen and off. In LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One, takes place on the mythical island of Okoto where six legendary heroes find themselves on an epic quest as they harness the power of nature’s elements to defeat the bad guys.
DINOTRUX: Season 2 just launched and perfect for fans of the show already! Catch up with Ty Rux and friends as they continue to build and battle. The half dinosaur, half truck characters get into many fun adventures while defending their world. The series by DreamWorks is based on the award-winning book series by Chris Gall.
So many great choices! What’s on your list?
