Take @Netflix With You This Holiday Season! #NetflixKids #StreamTeam #Ad

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Netflix.  As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

    Every Christmas and New Year’s, my husband and I try to split our time equally between both sides of the family.  It’s important that his family and mine get time to spend with us and our boys.  As a result, we do end up spending some time in the car traveling back and forth.  Additionally, since the grandparents are not that technologically advanced, we appreciate that we can take Netflix with us on our travels to keep the kids engaged and entertained.

    We love how accessible our boys’ favorite Netflix movies are from our smartphones and their tablets which allows us to bring their TV shows and movies to any destination.  We’ve put together some of our own beloved holiday titles that you can take to Grandma’s this year including Charlie Brown, Thomas the Tank Engine and Clark Griswold from Christmas Vacation.  Since they are all holiday themed, they will certainly help you and your family to feel merry and bright this Christmas.

  1.  The Polar Express
  2. The Nightmare Before Christmas
  3. Jingle All the Way
  4. Christmas Vacation

    You can watch want, anytime, anywhere with Netflix.  Here are some ideas for bringing the comforts of home wherever you go this holiday season:

Lego Travel Box:

  • Bring the fun on the road this holiday season with a DIY lego box. This self-contained kit is easy to transport, making it perfect for the backseat of a car or a long wait at the airport. Click here to learn how to make your own.

Chocolate Candy Cane Smoothies:

  • Ditch the chips and instead enjoy a delicious and healthy on-the-go treat: a Chocolate Candy Cane Smoothie. The recipe is inspired by a holiday favorite — peppermint hot chocolate.Even better? Though it might taste almost dessert-like, it’s actually a protein-packed snack that will keep the kids full and energized…without the sugar rush. Click here to learn how to make your own.

    So, wherever you are this holiday season, get into the holiday spirit with movies for the whole family on Netflix.  From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  1. I have the Netflix app on my iPhone and it’s saved me a few times when they’ve been bored and I needed something to calm the boys down quick!

  2. I do not have children but I can certainly understand how bringing favorite movies with you can save them from boredom—especially in the car ride back and forth!!

  3. I think Netflix would be a lifesaver to those who have kids!! I will certainly be making use of it once I have kids 🙂

  4. yes netflix is a life saver for kids, my kids love netflix, I do to, we have netflix hooked up on all our devices, so yea netflix is great

  5. Now who doesn’t want that healthy treat while watching some good stuff, right? 😀

  6. Netflix is the best!My family loves all the shows 🙂 It is a great way to spend some quality time together too!

  7. We use Netflix at home all the time. My spouse travels quite a bit, and he says he often watches Netflix on his iPad when he’s away, too. It’s well worth the money, at least for our family.

  8. Thanks for the great tips to bring comfort home. It is always welcome.

  13. We have a Netflix subscription and it is amazing. So much better than expensive cable that we used to have.

  14. Daisy Tremorev says

    We have Netflix and love it! It’s so affordable and you get access to so many shows. I also like life without commercials. 🙂

  15. I’ve been talking with a few others living away from the US… and honestly DO NOT forget about candy canes. We all miss them when living abroad 🙂
