Little Kids, Big Essentials: Take Netflix Along For The Holidays and Keep Everyone Entertained #StreamTeam

Posted on in Entertainment/ Kids/ Sponsored

Disclosure: I am part of the Netflix Canada StreamTeam, and as such received special perks and information that I share with my readers, however, my opinion is my own.

Tomorrow is December 1st! Can you believe it? Where did 2017 go? It’s about to be gone, and I’m excited for 2018 I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what the next year holds!

With the holidays so close I know a lot of people are starting to plan what will be happening, who you will be visiting and what exciting fun party you’ll be heading to. But, with that comes a little bit of stress. We want to make sure our kids are entertained and taken care of while travelling from house to house, and party to party. Well, Netflix has you covered! You can directly download their favourite show and movie titles right to their tablets, and off you go!

Yesterday while taking the GO Train, Ava was able to enjoy her favourites with no hassle and kept entertained on the hour and a half train ride we had to do twice in one day!

Little Kids, Big Essentials:
Little kids need things to do on busy drives or train rides! Be sure to pack the big essentials, so they stay entertained and content! Packing has never been easier! Smaller kids are a lot easier to please while on the road I find than those a bit older. They tend to nap or watch out the window. But when they get tired, a good show will surely help them pass the time!


Happy Kid, Happy Trip:
Even the kiddos a bit older tend to ask often “are we there yet?” Nip that in the bud quickly and pack all their essentials and be sure to have a smooth ride! I know when we’ve been on longer than usual trips in the car, the only thing to keep everyone occupied can be a show or two.

Be The Cool Parent:
Teens! They can often be the most vocal of the bunch. Wasting no time telling your their distaste for the long road trip, the many pit-stops and the fact that they can’t be with their friends. Keeping them entertained has never been as easy as now thanks to Netflix!

Parents, Don’t Forget About You:
Parents! Don’t forget about yourselves. Be sure to download your favourites and have on hand just in case you get tired of the scenery, or need a change of pace. I often find solace in an entirely good show while on a busy train or bus, beat those Holiday blues and travel stresses right off the bat!

Between delayed flights, lost luggage, public tantrums and that one thing you forgot to pack, travelling with your family can get complicated, fast. In fact, 1 in 5 Canadian parents says one of their main concerns when travelling is keeping their kids entertained. With the holidays just around the corner, parents can look to offline viewing on Netflix to keep everything, and everyone, under control, while on the go. From the tried-and-true shows, you can rely on like Beat Bugs and Luna Petunia to calm any meltdown to discovering new show obsessions like Stretch Armstrong & The Flex Fighters, Netflix downloads are must-have travel essential for parents and their kids. So when it’s time to go on a trip together, one thing is for sure: when Netflix at home becomes Netflix on the go, everyone stays content, engaged and, most importantly, NOT bored.

How does Netflix keep your family sane and entertained while on the go?

    I love streaming with Netflix! Just the other day while traveling with family I was streaming Stranger Things, I love how we can stream off our gadgets . I even used Netflix streaming when we took our trips last year and it kept the kids entertain until we reached our destination.

    We have had Netflix for a few years. It has helped with traveling some. But we really appreciated it when our son was in the hospital for a long stay. We were able to login with our tablets and watch a few shows while waiting.

    I absolutely love Netflix! My kids and I are always watching things on it. My husband travels a lot for work and he constantly is streaming things from Netflix in his hotel rooms.

    Just this past week, Netflix really helped us stay sane. We had no cable and only an Internet connection when we traveled to visit a relative. If we didn’t have Netflix, we’d have nothing to pass the time when inside. One day, we watched about 5 movies in a row – they were all pretty decent.

    I really need to limit my son’s screen time. However, now is not the time with all that is going on for the holidays. Netflix isn’t on his list but I’m thinking this would be better than the kids youtube he watches.

    Oh my gosh I love all of these Netflix picks! I need to dive into a lot of these. I just finished Stranger Things (and I’m considering rewatching it, haha!) Also, I just moved out of Milton, which is semi-close to Barrie! Ontario is a beautiful place!
