We don’t know about you guys, but we feel like the summer is definitely taking its toll.
The children are over the pool. They are no longer interested in playing board games. Any hope of craft projects went out the window when they spilled an entire bottle of glitter on the floor.
They want to be entertained all the time. Fun is the name of the game and that game comes at a pretty steep cost these days.
According to a recent survey that Netflix did with parents, we are all spending nearly DOUBLE on summer entertainment for our children than we do on holiday gifts.
Don’t we know it.
We took the children to the movies the other day. No husbands, just us and the kids. According to the showtime it was a “bargain” matinee. Except when it was all said and done after tickets and popcorn and candy, we had each spent well over $50. And this was even including the fact that we snuck in bottles of water in our purses!
Y’all. Our children were entertained for two hours, and we spent the equivalent of our monthly gas bill (summer rates). And then they had the nerve to ask what we were doing next.
Because of course, like all children, they prefer their entertainment to come in non-stop doses. There is never enough fun for them. They will wring every last bit of fun out of fun and still want more fun!
Thankfully, the summer gods smiled on us this week, and we got to take them to a fabulous blogging event for Netflix Families. In our combined households, our children probably spend several hours per week using Netflix on one of their devices, so it was the perfect party for us!
We arrived at the event to find a Lorax theme, which was right up our kid’s alley! There were plenty of snacks and games, plus the movie was being streamed right onto to the TV for the kids to watch while they played. Can you say blogging win? And can we just say how excited we were that our girls won the Lorax scavenger hunt? We know we shouldn’t be so competitive, but we just can’t help it!
The beauty of Netflix Families is that it allows you to stream content for your children to multiple devices anytime, anywhere. Have an Xbox? Or a tablet? Or a Wii? Fantastic! Your children can be watching their favorite movies and shows with just a single click! And the best part is that you don’t even need to have a Netflix account to take advantage of streaming. It is available to members and non-members. So, if you are not currently streaming Netflix in your house, now is your chance to start!
