Moms ’n Dads
Plan a family movie night. How about Fridays? Gather as a family in the living room at a specified time with lots of popcorn and chilled lime juice. Prop up plenty of cushions and pillows so anyone can doze off if they wish.
Choose a movie that everyone will enjoy. Or take turns choosing the movie every Friday.
Switch off most lights to create a cinema environment.
Go for movies based on story books that the family owns. They will be a visual treat for those who have read the book.
Don’t forget to discuss the movie the next day! And discuss the best movie to view the following week.
This weekly family movie will soon become an event to which all will look forward.
