With my Netflix subscription, I've recently gone through 5 seasons of "Mad Men," and am now on to Netflix's own "House of Cards." I try to sneak in 1 or 2 episodes each night, or in the afternoon while Boo is at school. Now that he's home for March Break though, my Netflix viewing has shifted to more family-friendly fare, at least during the day.
There is an awesome collection of movies and shows in the Netflix Just for Kids zone, with options for preschoolers through pre-teens. So, if you need a break from outings, crafts, and day trips, why not butter up some popcorn and screen a little personal film fest in the family room? Settle in, select the kids zone, and enjoy! Here are a few suggestions for the older kids, but there's lots more on the site:
Even the younger kids can easily pick a show or movie to suit them. Just for Kids has the option to choose by character, where kids can click on a picture of their favourite, like Dora, Bubble Guppies, Clone Wars, or the Madagascar Penguins. And the shows are all depicted with a cover image, making them easy to recognise even for young non-readers.
So, settle in, grab your snacks, and choose both what and when you want to watch! I'm sure you and the kids will be entertained.
