For the past year, we’ve started a new tradition for PIZZA MOVIE NIGHT each Friday. It’s been a highlight of the week for all of us! I typically make homemade pizza with pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe’s, but sometimes we order pizza as well.
Pizza Movie Night is a special event for several reasons. It’s a time that we spend TOGETHER as a family. Justin and I put our phones away, cook with the kids, eat with the kids, and watch the movie together with undivided attention.
We’ve also made it a tradition to make the movie one from our childhoods. It’s be fun and nostalgic to show the movies to our kids that we grew up watching. I’ve kept a running list for the past year of all our favorites! So, if you’re looking for some family-friendly movie ideas, this is a great place to start!
I linked all the movies to where we stream them online. Many are available on Disney + or Netflix (included in your subscription). The others are available to rent for under $4 from Amazon Prime Video. All of these movies are rated G or PG.
