Is your little man asking to watch a new movie that has finally been released on DVD?? Or have a movie that you both want to watch but haven’t had time for?? Then check out this Mother-Son Movie Date!!
Okay okay, we have something to admit over here at Pails of Love. We don’t actually love tv, movies, or electronics!!
Now hold on just a second before you close out of this window or write me off!! There has been tons of scientific studies done on the effects that electronics have on the brain and the results are unreal!!
However, with that being said we truly believe that technology and electronics definitely can have a time and place!! They can provide time for you as a momma to go run and get a shower in. Or supper cooked. Or make that telephone call without being interrupted.
We get it!!
But, before we continue on with telling you about this Mother-Son Movie date, we encourage those families who may watch more television than our family to first check out another idea to connect with your son. And find something out of your normal routine!!
And then come back to this one for those weeks when you don’t have time to stop!!
Okay and now here is all you need to know for this Mother-Son Movie Date!!
Constantly, we get asked if we can watch this movie or that movie. Usually, after a child has come home from school, who has heard about it from friends.
And lots of times the answer is to wait until Family Movie Night or another special time to do it.
Well, the time has finally arrived for our family and yours to truly sit down and spend some quality one on one time with your little man!!
We are keeping this movie night rather simple so that it doesn’t take a lot of planning or time on your part.
All the preparation that we encourage for you to do is to download our printable!!
Then cut out that movie ticket invite!!
And, leave it somewhere for your son to find!! Wait!! Don’t just stop there, why not leave his favorite movie treat with it!!
Speaking of treats, we came across this super yummy Reese’s Pieces Trail Mix recipe that is sure to be a hit if you are looking for another yummy snack!! You will find the recipe found in our printable packet!!
The recipe comes from The Black Peppercorn!! A recipe blog that has a ton of fun popcorn trail mix recipes!!
We encourage you to check out The Black Peppercorn if you are looking for more fun ideas!!
If you are interested in making the Reese’s Pieces Trail Mix you will need the following ingredients:
- Sweet and salty popcorn (here we refer to it as Kettle Corn)
- Pretzel sticks
- Chocolate Chips
- Reese’s Mini Pieces
You can either make the recipe ahead of time or you can make it together with your son. In our printable you will find 10 fun conversation topics to talk about while you are making your trail mix or before/ after the movie. If you are looking for more conversation ideas, please head on over to Parents.com where they have 63 questions to choose from!!
We encourage you as a momma, to take the necessary time to connect with your child and truly talk to them while having fun!!
We have experienced on numerous occasions that when you provide a child with your individual attention that these are the opportunities that they will open up. Your child won’t just tell you the big things going on in their life but also the little things too. The little things matter just as much if not more than the big things!!
As usual, to end your special time with your son we encourage you to spend time journaling or scrapbooking together your special night. Again in our printable you will find a journal page and movie quote stickers!!
So let us know in the comments below, what movie did you end up watching and what popcorn trail mix did you end up trying out?? We always love to hear from you and will even respond!!
We hope this Mother-Son Movie Date night will provide special quality time, a night of relaxation and even some time to connect and really hear about what’s going on with your little man in his every day life!!
Now go enjoy the future presentation!!
