Your Movie Night Checklist
- Cosy Christmas Pyjamas
There's nothing we love more than a cosy pair of Character Pyjamas for the whole family! Being comfortable whilst you're enjoying your family film night is a must! It's time to crack out your favourite pair of pyjamas, or, treat you and the rest of your family to a new pair from Pyjamas.com!
- A Selection Of Treats
No movie night is truly complete without a selection of delicious treats! Let's be honest, the best part about anything in life is the food, right? We're talking popcorn, jellies and even some homemade Christmas treats, if you're feeling fancy.
- Select your movie.
Remember the age and likes of everyone in your family and decide on a film that will appeal to everyone. However, when it comes to Christmas Films, can you really go wrong? Our suggestion would be Arthur Christmas, it's something a little different and perfect for the entire family.
- Set a time and a place.
Since Family Movie Night is meant to be a shared, bonding activity, you might consider scheduling it into your family calendar. Choose a comfortable location and a time that works for everyone. If you have young children, aim to schedule an earlier movie night so they can enjoy it before bedtime.
- Consider including movie-related activities.
A quick Google search of printable activities related to the film you’re watching will likely pull up colouring sheets, puzzles and even discussion points. These simple activities are a great way to encourage communication among families and open up a dialogue about the themes depicted in the film and that's what Christmas is all about, right?
