26 Great Shows and Movies for Family Movie Night


As the temperatures begin to fall, the hockey season for my daughters starts to heat up.  Our week nights are  full of skating lessons, power skating sessions, hockey practices and of course, the dreaded homework.  On the weekends we drive from arena to arena, town to town for hockey practices, games and tournaments. By the time Saturday night comes around we’re all exhausted so we’ve gotten into a routine of popping some popcorn, cuddling up and enjoying shows and movies together on Netflix.  

Netflix Family Movie Night

This month we’ve enjoyed some great movies together on Netflix.  Some were classics that we had seen before like Lilo and Stitch, some were new to us like Night at the Museum (which we totally loved), and one was a remake of a movie that my hubby and I enjoyed when we were younger, Freaky Friday.  Above all else, we’ve especially enjoyed watching the Disney movies on Netflix.  Spending the time together is fun and such a great way to end a busy week.

    My son is currently obsessed with Disney’s Cars so that’s ALL he wants to watch. I remember my nephew had a phase like that, and it lasted several years (sigh!).
