Summer’s here and the kids’ days stretch before them like long and gooey taffy … In the evenings, enjoy a classic family movie together (available at Netflix)!
Cheaper by the Dozen, 1950,Â starring Clifton Webb, Myrna Loy
Lots of kids know the remake of this flick starring Steve Martin, but show them another time and era with the original. Â Based on the real-life story of the Gilbreth family, this is the wonderful story of a very large family and all the crazy things that can happen in a home with a lot of people – and there’s a little gem tucked inside: the family saves water and money by only letting each member take a shower for as long as one song on the record player!
Other good ideas for movies with kids:
“The Sound of Music”
“Meet Me in St. Louis”
“Grease” (for older kids)
“Bye, Bye Birdie” (for older kids)
