12 Titles on Netflix, Craft Project, & Healthy Snacks! #NetflixKids


Snuggle up

The dreaded flu season is in full swing, which means it is probably only a matter of time before the miserable virus keeps your children home from school.  However, the time spent in bed resting can be a good opportunity to snuggle up and watch a comedy together!


Netflix knows the best cure for those sick day symptoms is laughter, so they compiled a list of hilarious titles that will turn sniffles into giggles. They have also pulled a few episodes featuring under-the-weather characters, showing your little kids they’re not the only ones who catch the occasional cold or have to visit the doctor.   I know for my 6 year old son the thought of having to see the doctor is a bit unnerving, but these cute shows help make it a tad less scary.

Daddy Day Care

One of our family’s favorites on the list is Daddy Day Care.  The movie stars Eddie Murphy as Charlie Hinton and Jeff Garlin as Phil Ryerson.  The two hardworking fathers find themselves laid off when their Veggie O’s cereal project is cut from development.   With no job possibilities foreseen, Charlie gets an idea to open a day care facility with Jeff to make money.  In need of extra childcare help they ask their friend Marvin (Steve Zahn) to join in and “Daddy Day Care” becomes a huge success!  The three men run the facility using unconventional hysterical methods of keeping the children entertained.  The popular business finds itself in a highly comical rival with Chapman Academy, a very strict pre-school headed by tough as nails Miss Harridan (Anjelica Huston). The movie is incredibly funny and is sure to bring smiles to your youngsters’ faces!

    I sure hope your little one is feeling better soon. It’s hard to see them get sick. The Netflix movies you picked are great for entertaining the kiddies to help take their minds off of being sick. The Apple is to cute.

  5. Taylor Allen says

    I remember watching Honey I Shrunk the Kids (and all of it’s sequels) over and over when I was little!

  6. Cheryl W. says

    The little crabs are so cute. I am going to take them to my daughter’s next party. We loved that movie the Croods, I recommend it for those who Netflix.

  7. Rhonda Martin says

    What a great way to spend the day even if your not sick. We haven’t seen Croods yet so this would be a great one to snuggle up and watch. The Crabs were just too cute. We have actually made dream catchers before and I think a “Cure” dream catcher that makes you feel better when you sleep would be a great one to do when sick and feeling yucky. We have Netflix and the lline-up for some fun filled hours looks perfect for that kind of day. Thanks for posting them.
