Spending a Night In With Netflix munching on Vegetable Fritters

On a cold winter evening, spending a night in with Netflix is easy! During our routine of Netflix nights, bundling up with blankets on the couch with pjs, and munching on homemade goodies is how we spend our night in. Our favourite go to shows on Netflix are classics, family movies, and new Netflix original shows.

New Year New View with Netflix

Although, I make resolutions throughout the year it is nice to get reminders to start reflecting, and prioritizing what we want to do in the beginning of a new year. I plan to continue doing more crafts, DIY projects, renovations, cooking and baking food from different cuisines, and travelling with my family.

Celebrate the Holidays with Cookies and Win Netflix Subscription

Baking together is a tradition in our home. It is lots of fun to make our favourite cookies and cakes especially during the holidays. These treats come in handy when we have leisure conversations and watch Netflix. There are lots of shows and movies to cozy up and watch on Netflix this holiday!

A Solution from Netflix for Bedtime Stallers

Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have come with a solution to help parents with bedtime-stalling children. Every child is different even in the same family, and I know some children come with every excuse they can think of to stay up a little bit longer.

What We Are Enjoying on Netflix

Last year, my family and I attended a Netflix screening party for King Julien and loved watching every episode of the Netflix series All Hail King Julien season one. We are super excited that the second season is now available on Netflix. We have already watched a few of the episodes and love each one. It is hilarious for adults and children! I think it is the perfect show to cozy up and watch during these cool fall nights.

Cozy Up With Your Family to Watch These Fun Movies on Netflix

With many of us in our back to school routine finding the time to watch a show together as a family becomes even more special. Cozying up during a cool and rainy evening with warm snacks, popcorn, and a blanket is lots of fun. My family and I love talking about movies and shows after we watch them. We enjoy talking about the memorable parts, and what we think about certain parts of the show that were funny or sad.

What's New on Netflix: DinoTrux & S.T.E.A.M inspired Project Mc2

We watched the first episode Netflix original series DinoTrux from DreamWorks, which will be launching on August 14th. My son being a big dinosaur fan loves the show that is based on the award-winning children’s book series by Chris Gall. DinoTrux features hybrid dinosaur/construction vehicle characters, and follows the larger-than-life adventures of two unlikely best friends, Ty Trux, a massive Tyrannosaurus Trux, and his tiny friend Revvit, a razor-smart Reptool.

Dragons Race to the Edge is on Netflix

My family and I had an exciting time when we went to the screening party for Dragons Race to the Edge in Toronto hosted by Netflix. Since we watched the first two episodes at the event, my children being Dragons fans couldn't wait to finish watching the rest of the episodes. They completed watching all the episodes and enjoyed each one of them.

New Shows and Some Old Fun to Watch Shows on Netflix

I like that Netflix has a dedicated section for kids under 12 years old featuring dozens of original series for kids, TV shows, and movies from PBS, Disney Channel, DreamWorks Animation, Mattel, Hasbro, LEGO and Scholastic all in a commercial free environment. The dedicated section for kids can be accessed from any device, including PCs and Macs, iPads, game consoles, streaming devices, and smart TVs. Members are provided a kids profile upon sign up, which can be customized.

Family is What You Make of It

There is no such thing as the "perfect" family because family is what we make of it. I am sure that none of us would want to trade our families for any other even if they are not perfect all the times. Although, I am sure there are times you question this :) Deep down each of us know that we can rely on our family the most, and that attachment we have with our family is a gift from God that we must cherish.

Playing, After Watching Ever After High Netflix Original

At the Ever After High’s annual spring fairest everything is topsy-turvy where up means down, and royal means rebel. My daughter enjoys playing with the storybook dollhouse, and the Ever After High dolls because she can replay what she has enjoyed on the Netflix Original Ever After High, and also make her own stories during play.

Exploring Science

My family and I love exploring science on a regular basis by going to the Science Centre, reading books related to science, watching shows related to science, and also exploring science at home. Here is an experiment my children did where they inflated a balloon without blowing, hope you get to try it with your little ones during the March Break.

Loving and Finding Our Own Paths

I encourage my children to forge their own paths. I think it is important for me as a parent to have an open mind and give lots of exposure to life experiences. I think it is also important for me to teach my children my values and beliefs, so they are aware of it when they make their own choices.

Literature Inspired Shows and Movies on Netflix

I am big fan of watching TV shows and movies that are inspired by books, and there are lots! When I surf Netflix looking for something we can watch, I lean towards a movie or show that is inspired by books.

All Hail King Julien Party

We had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening party to watch All Hail King Julien, and learn the steps to King Julien's dance and have fun King Julien style. We also bought the fun home as we celebrated watching the rest of the episodes at home with party hats, balloons, squawkers, and New Year's Eve glasses.

Funny Movies Inspired Craft

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.

Mystery Titles and What's Coming to Netflix

The mysterious feel of winter coming, autumn leaves and pumpkins turned into lanterns surrounds October. This is also the time when the amount of daylight we have becomes shorter and the little ones play detective even when it gets dark outside. To celebrate the mysterious feel, here are some movie titles from Netflix...

Parenting may be a 24/7 gig, but taking time out for our self helps keep us strong for our family. This month's Stream Team topic is about reminding moms to take some time for themselves and maybe catching up on their favourite TV shows.
