First things first, you HAVE to turn the living room into a super awesome movie theatre unlike any other. Light a few candles, if you have a pull out sofa pull it out for once..make it cozy. Have your kids grab all the biggest pillows and blankets in the house. If you don't have a pull out sofa you can make a pallet on the floor..super fun too!
Before you watch the movie have the kiddos help you make dinner/snack. This is great family time..the perfect way to start the night.
Now break all the rules..eat in the living room, in the dark while watching the movie. Half way through the movie stop to take a potty break and make popcorn. After this night of fun your wallets will be happy and so will your kiddos!
