Are your little ones asking, "What do you want for Christmas?" I'll tell you that I'm never shy about my requests for macaroni necklaces, handmade storybooks, or coupons for free hugs from my little ones. It's fun to see them beam with pride as they share their creations. In today's post, I will share the 12 Days of Netflix and fun gift ideas for your little ones to make.
The 12 Days of Netflix and Gift Idea
Day 12. You can watch anywhere -- by the fire on the big screen or at the breakfast nook on a tablet.
Gift Idea: Have your little ones set up the living room for a movie night with you! Have them browse Netflix to find the perfect movie for your family to watch. Depending on their age, request pillows, blankets, popcorn, drinks, and more for the ultimate "Family Movie Night" setup.
Day 11. See what Piper’s piping on Orange is the New Black.
Gift Idea: Ask your little ones to set up the living room for "Mommy's Movie Night" with Orange is the New Black so that you are able to stay up late to watch a few episodes. Depending on their age, ask them to make you a fruit platter that has a generous serving as oranges or an orange smoothie. It goes with the theme, plus who doesn't need an extra dose of Vitamin-C at this time of year?!
Day 10. The kids can meet up with old friends in new ways, like racing to the edge with Hiccup and Toothless.
Gift Idea: Ask your little one to pick their absolute favorite episode from How to Train Your Dragon or Dinotrux. Depending on their age, ask them to create a short storybook that summarizes their favorite episode so that you are able to "read the book" and then watch the show.
Day 9. Mom can play White Christmas over and over again and encourage her daughters to reenact “Sisters” like Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen.
Gift Idea: Ask your children to act out scenes. After all, the gift of a good "performance" is a fun memory to create!
8. It’s so easy to set up, your five year old can help you do it.
Gift Idea: Give your five year old (or other little ones) access to the remote and give them 20 minutes to scan and peak at shows to find the perfect holiday movie to watch. Once they find the perfect show, it is time to p-a-r-t-y and watch it as a family!
7. Celebrate the classic holiday extravaganza with the Radio CityChristmas Spectacular featuring none other than the Rockettes.
Gift Idea: Ask your children to give you a performance where they pretend to be the Rockettes. (Let me apologize in advance if they put a song into you mind that you can't help but hum it for the rest of the week.)
Gift Idea: Watch one of the many Lego-themed shows on Netflix and also ask your little ones to create Lego ornaments. Lego candy canes are easy to make. You will find more complicated ideas for older children online.
5. Family movie time can happen any day of the week.
Gift Idea: Rock the 12 Days of Netflix with your family by asking your little nes to create a schedule of movies to watch for the week!
4. Learn all you need to know from the first family, aka The Croods.
Gift Idea: Prepare dinner together with nothing but fire, a metal pot, and sticks. OK, not really, but you'll come pretty close with fondue! Have a fun "cave family" night with fondue and The Croods.
3. Saturday morning cartoons, solved. (Especially if Inspector Gadget has anything to say about it.)
Gift Idea: Let your little ones wake up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons while you sleep in. Yes... the gift of rest is like gold to this mom!
2. Date night with Frank and Claire.
Gift Idea: Ask your little ones to set up the living room for Mom and Dad to stay up late to watch House of Cards! Ask them to literally build a house out of cards as part of the decor.
1. With Netflix, the whole family wins: Mom gets Jessica Jones, Dad gets Narcos and the kids get Care Bears, Project Mc2, Fuller House and five more minutes before bedtime.
Do you have any Netflix Gift Ideas?Gift Idea: Ask your little ones to create a storybook about what they imagine a "day in the life of mom" was like in the 80's. Encourage them to watch some shows from the 80's to guess how you dressed and shows that you probably liked. Bonus: Ask them to do research to find out popular toys and candy from the genre!
