June seems like a countdown until the last day of school and for summer vacation to finally begin! What I look forward to most during the break is making new memories and sharing some old memories with the kids. What better way to bond than with some old-school classics on Netflix!
Old School Netflix Summer Watches #StreamTeam
The exciting thing about Netflix is they're rebooting some of my childhood favorites and introducing a whole new generation to some of the beloved characters I grew up with! With upcoming shows like the new Netflix Original series Popples and The Magic School Bus the kids and I can easily bond over these old school shows. Since I already know the characters there isn't much of a learning curve compared to some of the new shows out there.
A few flicks on our old school summer watch list are:
- My Littly Pony
- Garfield and Friends
- The Smurfs
- The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
- Party of Five
If you're into watching something new you'll love DREAMWORKS DRAGONS:
RACE TO THE EDGE arriving June 26th! The kids and I have watched the whole series now and we're amazed by the graphics and the storyline is pretty intriguing for young and old alike.
I like watching TV series on Netflix because I can put an episode on my iPad while I'm prepping meals for the week or whipping up a snack. Cheyenne has even got hooked on a few of my favorites including:
- Switched At Birth
- Friday Night Lights
- Heartland (A Canadian favorite!)
I like how the TV series aren't all adult oriented and we can watch them together. Cheyenne always like talking about the teenager struggle and life lessons the episodes teach, which turns the show into easy teachable moments. Entertainment and bonding all rolled into one!
Creating new memories and bonding with the kids is what every day is all about and when we can combine that with memories from our past it is pretty exciting!
Here's to many summer fun nights ahead!
