Film Ideas for both Kids and Adults

Film Ideas for both Kids and Adults

My kids are 8 and 9 and during lockdown we’ve been having Movie Night on a Friday and Saturday night. Loathe to spend our evenings watching the usual cartoon fare that the girls would choose themselves we’ve been trying to introduce them to things we will enjoy too.

So here’s what we’ve already watched and what’s on our list.
