Movie-watching tips:
  • Dim the lights, rearrange the furniture, grab pillows and blankets, make popcorn or your favorite sweet treat to create a movie night in your own home.

  • Let your kids make the popcorn or their favorite sweet treat like cookies, brownies or rice crispy treats.

  • Let the kids help you rearrange the furniture. You can move chairs to make rows or put couches together to create theater like seating. You could even lay blankets and pillows on the floor for a cozy and cuddly time.

  • Create a theme night. Everyone vote on a movie and then do a theme for the food/snacks, what you're wearing, décor, etc.
