So…BIG NEWS…we have been asked to join the Netflix #StreamTeam for 2016 and we are completely thrilled about it.
Signing up for Netflix is SO easy and there’s even the ability to set up profiles for each family member, meaning you can have easy access to all of your favourite shows at the click of a button. It even remembers what you were watching last and allows you to pick up from where you left off.
Although my family and I definitely agree on the fact that we all love Netflix…having thousands of movies and tv shows at the end of our fingertips can present a bit of a challenge when it comes to choosing what we should watch next as a family. When there are four of you with completely different tastes and all wanting to watch something different, trying to come to a fair decision is not always easy.
Thankfully, Netflix came to the rescue with a welcome hamper of goodies and a printable fortune teller to help us plan for some quality family time and decide what to watch next.
NETFLIX FORTUNE TELLER CRAFT ACTIVITY
How to play:
- Print out the Fortune teller and cut along the dotted lines.
- Label the outermost triangles 1-8 and add in different genres for each.
- Then on the inner triangles, fill in your favourite show or movie currently streaming on Netflix that corresponds to each genre.
- Fold and play!
I wanted to keep the Netflix fortune teller very family orientated so based my choices around tv shows or movies that I knew the boys would particularly enjoy – Shark Tale, Smurfs, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Madagascar, DinoTrux etc.
There was SO much to choose from, it was really hard to limit it down to just a handful, but I did and we had a lovely “Movie Afternoon” tucking into some sweets and popcorn (courtesy of Netflix – thank you!) and watching a couple of films that we had never actually seen before. The boys absolutely loved it.
If you fancy giving the Netflix Fortune Teller a go yourself, simply print out a blank one and load it up with your personal favourites or if you REALLY can’t decide, print out my pre-filled version containing popular suggestions. And hey presto! Now you know what to watch.
