Spending time on family nights out can get expensive. For the average family with four people it could cost in the range of seventy five dollars for four movie tickets and snacks. To have more fun and save a lot of money have a home movie night. The blu-ray dvd has amazing pictures and sound. It will be the same or better than sitting in a theater, not to mention the quality time spent with family.


Spending time on family nights out can get expensive. For the average family with four people it could cost in the range of seventy five dollars for four movie tickets and snacks. To have more fun and save a lot of money have a home movie night. The blu-ray dvd has amazing pictures and sound. It will be the same or better than sitting in a theater, not to mention the quality time spent with family.

Children can get involved with the adventure by having them make movie tickets from construction paper and colored pencils. Let them decorate each ticket and 'sell' to each person coming to the movie. When movie time arrives the children can collect the ticket from its holder before they enter the video viewing room.

Instead of microwave popcorn, let the kids help with making old fashioned popcorn. Using paper lunch sacks, fill a bag for each person that will be in attendance. Providing other snacks as well, and drinks in cups with an attached straw will give the effect of being at a theater.

Each week a different family member gets to choose the movie. Kids love picking out what to watch. It is simple to join a club that mails the videos to your home or you could take whoever gets to pick the movie to the video store and let them pick from the shelf. This is also a good way to spend alone time with the child whose week it is to choose the movie.

3D movies are always a big hit because the kids get to wear glasses and laugh at the parents for wearing theirs. Often times you can find discounted movies at a local department store for a couple of dollars. Buying movies when they are discounted is a great way to build a video library at home.

Each movie night should be scheduled to start a specific time. Dim the lights in the area you will be watching the video and let the kids 'usher' in the guests with mini flashlights. Letting the children become an usher or a 'concession' stand worker gives them a sense of being the boss for the day and it is great for teaching responsibility.

Put in the blu-ray dvd and sit back to enjoy some good fun family time. After the movie let the children give a review. Older children can interview the family for their thoughts and opinion on the latest household movies.
