My Summer Movie List Pt. 1
Let’s admit it, during summer break movies are definitely a go to option to occupy the kids. I love movies. I could honestly binge watch movies/tv shows (without commercials) and YouTube an entire day if I didn’t have any plans or kids (LOL!). Presently, each one of my boys have different attention span thresholds, so having go-to movies readily available (and on queue) on Netflix are very important, at certain parts of the summer days.
Currently, my 8 year old has the attention span to concentrate without being disturbed watching tv, playing video games, and of course sitting through an entire movie or two. However, my 4 year old can barely sit through a 20-30min show (Unless it’s Paw Patrol or Octonauts). As a parent of young children (under 10), your children move with you, and always want your attention. They always want to interact with you, want your attention on them, and just want you to always be engaged on whatever they’re doing. Aside playing outside, biking, hiking, and crafting –movies are always a fall back to secure staple for family time. Here is the first edition to my favorite family movies. Great for all age groups, and especially for adults. These movies are a great mixture of both recently new released films as well as more than a decade or two old.
