I cannot even begin to tell you guys how glad I am that we have all survived back to school and that our family routines are back in full swing. I’m thoroughly enjoying the change of seasons here in New York City and I’ve even started digging my boots and leggings out of the closet. To make everything even better, Disney is now on Netflix. Yes, you read that correctly, all of our favorite Disney films have arrived on Netflix!
Disney films are just perfect for snuggling on the couch during family movie night and we have already planned our first gathering to watch Disney’s Zootopia. We are so excited about spending some time with Judy Hopps and making some of our favorite movie time snacks like ice cream sandwiches. I can’t wait to also introduce my boys to HOLES since it has been one of my favorite Disney films for years and I have also greatly enjoyed teaching the book to my students over the years.
If you have school-aged or pre-teen children at home, HOLES is the perfect combination of mystery and adventure. Its setting revolves around a Texas detention camp where delinquents are forced to dig holes every day in order to help the inmates develop character. As time goes on, they realize that there are other reasons for their constant digging. In my opinion, it is the perfect movie for prompting conversations about friendship, consequences, and perseverance.
