Movie Night

A great way to spend time with family is to have a movie night pajama party— it’s fun, comfy, and there’s no theater required. You can even do a double feature! So, gather the family on the couch at least once a week and follow these tips for an in-home theater experience that’s fun for everyone. 

Pick out a movie

To have a movie night, you obviously need to choose a movie. The best way to do this is to have each family member pick out one movie, then everyone votes for their favorite (but you can’t vote for the one you picked out). That way the choice is fair. 

Put on pajamas and pick a spot on the couch

One of the best things about family movie night is being able to lounge around the house in your pajamas. So, put on your most comfortable bedtime clothes and scope out your favorite place on the couch or floor. The theater definitely can’t offer this kind of comfort.

Get snacks & popcorn

No movie is complete without some delicious popcorn. Have your parents help you make popcorn for the family. You can season with salt and butter for a movie theater style, or you can put your favorite toppings on it, like spicy chili powder or even parmesan cheese! For a healthier movie snack, help your parents put together a plate full of fruits and veggies.
