Family Christmas Movie Night!

Create a new tradition and plan a Christmas Movie night with your children, complete with tickets, popcorn and other movie snacks. A fun, inexpensive night your child will love. You can plan an early dinner and bath time to ensure they are not late to bed. Have your child make and colour the tickets themselves the day before, as well as ‘snack bar’ and ‘box office’ signs. Configure the room to resemble a theatre, even if it is as simple as bringing the chairs or couch closer to the screen.

On movie night, have someone man the ‘box office’ and ‘snack bar’. And for Mum and Dad, when the kids are fast asleep, snuggle up and watch a favourite grown up movie!
