Movie + Activity = Genius Parenting Hack

Sharing is caring!

Please note that I will be updating this post very often. So make sure you Pin this post and come back to it for more ideas! 

Ok the title may be a little exaggerated but if you are a mom or dad that still needs to get work done with your kids at home and still want to have some fun with your kids – you are going to love this post. 

In our neighborhood Facebook page, we had someone say that they are having their kids watch a movie so she can get some work done. Then they find an activity that goes with the movie so they can have some fun together. 

(This genius neighbor has an awesome Etsy shop – so go visit Suds & Such and support her small business!) 

Here are some of the activities she has done with her kids: 

  • Watch The BFG and then make dream jars
  • Watch Willy Wonka and do a rock candy experiment
  • Watch Matilda and bake a chocolate cake

So I have asked my blogger friends to share some of their movie + activity posts so you can plan to do these with your kids!
