From late rainy afternoons to late summer nights, Netflix has you covered.

Rainy Afternoons with Netflix

Rainy afternoons are a little brighter with Netflix. As a work at home mom, my office hours keep me in business and organized. During the summers, I extend my hours a little since homeschool is out. Sadly, the weather refuses to get on my schedule. Being rained out for a few hours of afternoon play is no fun when mom is working. Thankfully, my oldest rallies in the kids to watch Netflix. My teen turns to Netflix families and navigates to TV for Curious Kids so they can enjoy learning about flamingos, turtles, or dinosaurs. Lately the favorite is How Stuff Works. Sighs of relief can be heard everywhere from moms who can trust their kids are watching family friendly shows even if they are busy typing away or throwing in another load of laundry. I suppose the only real problem is my tendency to get caught up in some of those shows. I guess I am just a curious kid at heart.

Late Summer Nights are Netflix Family Movie Nights

When summer comes in the rules go out...on bedtime at least. The hot summer nights force the kids to camp out downstairs where it's cool. The red glare from the screen is a familiar setting as we settle in to search Netflix to find something fun to watch. Navigating Netflix is simple and if you stick to searching through the new family section of Netflix you are certain to never run across non-family friendly selections.

The kids get the thrill of sharing a late night movie and I get to enjoy an inexpensive summer experience. With six people in my house the cost of going to the movies equals the cost of almost 6 months of Netlfix. Best of all, we don't have to worry about missing anything during a potty break. We also have no rules against bringing in outside food. In fact, it is encouraged so the cook can spend more time watching movies and less time cleaning up.

On the iPad, the computer, or the TV, you can access Netflix so every member of your family can have a bit of downtime. I admit that I love to watch a movie after the kids fall asleep in bed on my iPad. TV on my time at $7.99 a month is perfect for busy families. So plan your next family movie night with Netflix. is a new destination designed to meet your family’s summertime entertainment needs.

We are totally a Netflix kind of family...particularly when we gather together for our Friday night family movie nights. Rainy days are tough around here too. My kids LOVE to be outside playing so when they see rain, they get all sorts of grumpy. :)
