We know laughter is the best medicine when we all feel tired, and not feel too good. Netflix has lots shows we can choose from that will give us the comic relief we need. Curling up on the couch with a movie or show like Mr. Popper's Penguins can take our mind off the hustle and bustle of the day, especially with night approaching so quickly. Here is a list of laughter-inspired titles for both little and big kids.
One of our favourite is Despicable Me, it is a funny movie that we can watch over and over. We also like the different Madagascar movies, as it is sure to bring lots of laughter.
We are also excited that there will be five 22-minute episodes of All Hail King Julien, a series focused on one of the most beloved characters from Madagascar that will be on Netflix in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France beginning on Friday, Dec. 19.
The series features a talented voice cast that includes television legend Henry Winkler (Happy Days) as Julien’s regal predecessor, Uncle King Julien, alongside Emmy-winning actor Danny Jacobs as King Julien, Andy Richter (Conan, Arrested Development) as Mort, Kevin Michael Richardson (Family Guy) as Maurice, and India de Beaufort (One Tree Hill) as Clover, the king’s special-ops expert.
Once in a while, when my children watch a movie or show I like to use it has an inspiration to do a craft activity or some fun writing. My daughter used a few things around the home to start making a mask inspired by a show she likes to watch.
