Watch These Movies With The Kids This Spring Break

by Samantha on March 11, 2014

DISCLAIMER: As part of the Netflix #StreamTeam, I will be providing monthly thoughts and suggestions about movies currently showing on Netflix. As with all content on this blog, opinions are completely my own.


Kids going crazy? Feeling stressed?

Gotcha. You’re not the only one.

March Break, Spring Break, it doesn’t matter what you call it. Kids are not going to school and parents are under the gun to keep them entertained. Family outings are great, but so are those times when you can kick back and relax indoors - inexpensively.

As with most kids, mine love watching the tube, especially when we sit down to have a family movie night. Deciding on what to watch has always been a bit of a challenge, as the choices are either slim, or the kids are not in agreement with each other. Such is the reality for those of us with kids of varying ages.

The solution to this problem has been Netflix.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my membership. Movies, documentaries and kiddie shows galore, available whenever and wherever I - or my kids - need it to be. We’ve had Netflix for less than a year and it’s already become a family favourite, particularly for the kids. Whether you’re going on a family vacation far away, or staying close to home, being able to log on to Netflix whenever and wherever you are is a bonus - especially when you have young kids in the mix.

During this year’s school break, we’re going to be going to town with a number of the latest selections for kids.

On the agenda for my boys:

Happy Feet Two


My Friend Bernard


For my daughter, some movies that appeal to older children:

Akeelah and the Bee

Gulliver’s Travels



What I love about the service is its ease-of-use and I’ll continue to be blown away by the algorithm that seems to know just what I or the kids may want to watch next, based on our previous viewing. If I can squirrel away some time for myself, perhaps I’ll finally get around to watching the full House of Cards series. Fingers crossed.

What are you doing while the kids are off school for the week? What are your favourite kiddie movies and shows? Leave me your thoughts in the comments section below.
