If you are anything like my family, you love family time! We aren’t huge fans of electronics all the time, but around here we have a weekly tradition of family movie night. We love cuddling up on the couch together and snuggling up to the perfect movie. Family Movie Night is the perfect time to get silly, have some fun and make some memories!
Thanks to Pop Secret for sponsoring today’s Perfect Movie Night!
We found this amazing app the other day from Popsecret that we have been, literally, obsessed with. If you are a regular here, you know just how much we love science, technology and figuring out how things work. This app does just that! It has turned our movie nights into a scientific exploration! That’s why I thought it would be fun to round up 10 Totally Awesome Movie Night Ideas to celebrate the fun!
Experiment and Explore the Perfect Popcorn | Every movie night needs a good heaping pile of popcorn! Download this FREE APP to not only make the best popcorn, but to explore and learn. This app HEARS your popcorn and tells you exactly when to stop the microwave. How totally awesome is that? Make predictions on how long your kids think it will take, how many kernels will be left, will it take the same amount of time each time, what happens with different flavors of popcorn? The possibilities are endless.
Turn Your Kids into Movie Critics | Encourage storytelling, critical thinking and verbal expression by having your kids become movie critics. Ask questions, conduct interviews and put the power in your kids hands.
Pick a Classic Book and Pair it with a Movie | Love Roald Dahl? You will love these 5 movie pairings and review! And you know the best part? Popcorn! You won’t believe when this blogger eats her popcorn.
Get Moving & Dance | Sometimes movie nights can be synonymous for sitting and lounging. Take some time to turn up the soundtrack at the end of the movie, get off the couch with your kids and get movin’ ! It will make the movie night enjoyable and memorable for everyone!
Take Time to Connect | Movie nights are the perfect time to cuddle up and connect with your kids. I absolutely love this list of 100 ways to connect and be kind to your kids!
Pick a Family Night Theme | We love LEGO around here! Everything is Awesome! This is one of our favorite movie night themes complete with snacks, games, and of course LEGO action!
Make Your Own Movie | Who said movie night has to be done with a blockbuster movie? Why not make your very own movie? This simple tutorial will teach you how to cut, create and film your very own animation. Don’t forget the popcorn when you curl up to watch it!
Make a Popcorn Bar | How delicious does that sound? Your favorite popcorn popped perfectly with Perfect Pop App mixed with your favorite tasty treats! Your kids will be begging for another movie night!
