So, Finally snow is coming! Let’s plan what to do so we don’t stay on bed all day. There are many fun things you can do with your family.

1.- Watch Netflix family friendly movies: Our recommendations are:

– Snow Buddies : “In this family-friendly tale, a feisty pack of golden retriever puppies embarks on an Alaskan adventure, braving snow, ice and danger along the way.”

– Nature: Snow Monkeys : “In Japan’s frigid Shiga Highlands, a troop of snow monkeys functions in a complex society of rank and privilege where each knows its place.

-Fireplace for Your Home: “Replicate the peacefulness of an old-fashioned, wood-burning fireplace, as well as a crackling yule log fireplace, all set to holiday tunes.”

-Pingu: On Thin Ice: “Getting himself in trouble is nothing new for the mischievous penguin Pingu as he returns for more hilarious adventures in this cartoon collection.”

-Chicken Run: “This engaging stop-motion, claymation adventure tells the story of an American rooster who falls in love with a gorgeous hen on a British farm. The couple decides to run away from the farm, but they must first contend with the evil farmer who is intent on keeping them under her control. The chickens decide to attempt an escape so they don’t get turned into chicken pot pies.”

-Lilo and Stitch: “A tale of a young girl’s close encounter with the galaxy’s most wanted extraterrestrial. Lilo is a lonely Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly “dog,” whom she names Stitch. Stitch would be the perfect pet if he weren’t in reality a genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth. Through her love, faith and unwavering belief in ohana, the Hawaiian concept of family, Lilo helps unlock Stitch’s heart and gives him the ability to care for someone else.”

-Secret of the Kells: “In the remote Irish woods, Cellach (Brendan Gleeson) prepares a fortress for an impending attack by a Viking war party. Unbeknown to Cellach, his young nephew Brendan (Evan McGuire) — who has no taste for battle — works secretly as an apprentice in the scriptorium of the local monastery, learning the ancient art of calligraphy. As the Vikings approach, revered illuminator Aidan (Mick Lally) arrives at the monastery and recruits Brendan to complete a series of dangerous, magical tasks.”
