If you’re looking for a fun, frugal way to enjoy time with your family, look no further than your living room. Movie night is a simple, inexpensive idea for family fun.
The girls love it when we declare a family movie night. The lights are dimmed, the popcorn is popped, and the whole family snuggles on our couch to enjoy the evening.
Here are a few ways to liven up your home movie experience:
Bring the Theater Home 1 of 6
Read the Book First 2 of 6
Movie Marathon 3 of 6
Dinner and a Movie 4 of 6Pair a fun dinner treat with movie night — we've done pizza night, an appetizer buffet, and carpet picnics. Eating dinner in front of the movie is a huge treat for our girls, since we never eat in the living room. Photo Credit: Flickr

Dress the Part 6 of 6Okay, so it's getting a little geekier here, now that I've mentioned cosplay. Seriously, though? Kids love getting dressed up! My girls dress up for Halloween, birthdays, Christmas, Wednesday ... dressing the part to watch a favorite movie makes the evening even more special. That's why, no matter what time of day it is, we always wear pajamas for Polar Express. Plus, the girls have enough Disney princess costumes to dress for every movie!
I can’t wait for another movie night with the family. It will probably be the next Harry Potter, but I also love to share my old school favorites with my girls. They love Back to the Future almost as much as I do! What’s your favorite family movie night choice?
