We have always been on year round school.  So my kiddos didn’t have too much of a summer.  This year, my daughter’s school decided to go traditional.  So we have a big summer.  And I am loving it!  I just love having my girls around.

They have been playing with friends, in and out of the water, helping me paint around the house and crafting.  But I do find I am seeing the “we are bored phase” more than I used to.  When it gets really hot, they don’t want to run around outside for too long.  So we started having “girls movie time.”

I recently found that my two oldest, Samantha and Emma, were old enough to like movies mommy and daddy like.

get the printable for these cute photo props. Just print cut and glue to sticks. So cute!

They grow up so fast. How did that happen?

We’ve been loving having family movie night.  So when the kids were bored on hot day, I decided to introduce them to some of my favorite movies.  It can be hard though finding a movie that we will all like.  One that isn’t too scary, or doesn’t have questionable content.

I just recently learned that Netflix has launched a new family site.  I have been so impressed with this site.  It has some really great recommendations for the whole family, some for kids, and even some for just adults.  And you don’t have to me a Netflix member to use this site.  Here are my favorite lists:

great family movies from netflix.com/family #netflixfamilies #ad

These are a few of my favorite recommendations from Netflix.

 We check the Family movie night list when we want a show for the whole family.

 Before checking this site, I hadn’t thought of picking movies for our “girls movie time” that were for curious kids.  But I absolutely love this idea.  I have started picking shows for my girls from this list and we all love them.

I love the Get ready for preschool list for my Emma.  We love that netflix carries so many Disney jr. shows.  Netflix is a big reason we cut the cable cord.  {I’ll write a post all about that later.}

You’ve also got to check out these lists:

Show your kids the world

Catch up-Tv for busy parents list {love whole seasons of shows you can watch anytime plus no commercials}

Are we there yet-great titles to take on Vacation {love that netflix can go anywhere with you}

Classics to share with your kids {I love introducing my girls to my favorite shows from my childhood}

Quiet time

I am really loving this new Netflix family site.  But let me tell you my favorite thing about Netflix.  A while back, they came out with a streaming plan that allows you to stream on more than one device at a time.  This has been needed for a while and I’m so glad they did it.  We have netflix on 4 computers, 2 phones, my girls tablets and the Wii.  It’s not uncommon to find us streaming on more than one device at a time.  So we LOVE this change.

I really like this new family site from Netflix.  I especially love that it is open to members and non members.  It’s definitely going to get us watching more educational shows this summer.  Click on over and check it out.

Do you guys have family movie nights?  How about summer boredom busters? Will you use these lists from Netflix for recommendations?

Netflix.com/Families is a new destination designed to meet your family’s summertime entertainment needs. On Netflix.com/Families, parents can find lists of movies and TV shows for all kinds of special summer moments.
