How to create a cozy family movie night with Netflix movies

As we head into Fall and Winter, my family starts thinking about activities we can enjoy inside. Family movie night is always a big hit in our house. Let’s set the stage. It’s cold outside and starting to snow. You know you’ll be cooped up for a few days with the big storm coming. Let’s plan a cozy family movie night.

Getting the Family Room Ready

Creating a nice cozy atmosphere will help you all relax and enjoy the movie. Netflix is working with craft stylist, Kelly Ladd Sanchez, to come up with a very simple way to create a DIY Fort Blanket. Kelly has all the materials and step by step instructions to create your own fort in your family room.

I would add some trays or small tables so that the drinks won’t spill. We like either appetizers or pizza for our movie nights.

If you want to have some fun healthy snacks try:

  • Chocolate covered strawberries
  • Apples cut up and caramel for dipping
  • Carrots with ranch dip
  • Celery with peanut butter
  • Baked tortilla chips with salsa
