Film Nights With The Family

Hello, my name is James and I run Daddy Space I have written a post about what makes film nights so special to us. I hope you enjoy reading, I would love to know what you think so leave a comment for me to see. 

The DVD aisle full with hundreds of titles, some of which you have on the shelf at home, some which you have seen and accidentally but intentionally on purpose lost, and some which you have never seen before. Possibly my favourite aisle in Tesco closely followed but the man section of car bits. The kids also love coming down here and choosing DVD's, instead of letting them randomly have a film whenever we like to specifically have film nights.


 

We as a family often have film nights we really enjoy them and get so much out of having some quality family time. We often find ourselves rushing around so much that you can often forget how important it can be to all sit down together and just be. When is the last time you all just stopped doing everything and sat down together and concentrated on one thing as a family?

Having film night allows you to do this and gives you all something to concentrate on without distraction. When we have our film nights we specifically choose a new DVD get some snacks in specially and choose a nice drink each. It can be nice to bring a duvet down for everyone to sit under whilst the film is one this makes everything nice a cosy.

With the film chosen the snacks in bowls and drinks with straws in its time to go often the first thing to happen is one of the kids knocks the bowl over! We just clean the most of the mess then we worry about the crumbs later so the emphasis is on the time spent together.



Having had a film night it leads to conversation involving the whole family during the next day or so with talk about what happened and the kids playing out the scene. It really is our number one way to spend family time together and  would urge you all to try it out if you don't already.

What was the last DVD you watched together ?

    1. That sounds like a great idea Kirsty, one with your hubby and then one with your 9 year old :)

  2. I've become a little bit obsessed with the Iron Man films. I'm not saying why, ahem, [Robert Downey Jr] *cough* but thank goodness I've got an eight year old who loves them too, or I would have A LOT of explaining to do! ;-)
