Throughout September the kids have been tired from being back at school for a month and a half, finding their feet and getting back into their clubs and sports. We’ve had a bit more TV time and this is where We have Netflix comes in handy. We have it on our iPads, laptop and on the TV from our Virgin Media box and Apple TV, so there is always somewhere to watch. Within moderation of course. Last month I was all about movies and music, this month we’ve been all about kids.
The boys have been watching the new episodes of Turbo which are on Netflix this month. Turbo is one of Tyler’s, who is 5, favourite film. He hates having baddies, etc so Turbo is an ideal one for him. The little guy that overcomes it all to follow his dream. He is loving these adventures and cheering on Turbo. In case you haven’t seen the film, Turbo is a super-powered snail the form a Fast Action Stunt Team. Lots of fun filled action to be had.
Lucas is getting into Lego, so he is a big fan of Lego: Legends of Chima, which has new episodes on Netflix. Chima is about a peaceful land where conflict breaks out between eight animal tribes over Chi. A substance they need to survive. It’s not really my thing, but Lucas has been enjoying it and it’s been encouraging his creativity with Lego.
Another one of my favourites which is new out is Popples. I remember these as a child. They were cute little teddies that went into themselves as they rolled up into a little ball. I was intrigued as to how this would turn into a tv show. Popples is a fun fantasy adventure about the Popple friends Bubbles, Sunny, Lulu, Izzy and Yikes. You can follow their fun adventures along the way. This is a Netflix exclusive. And is so cute.
Since we were getting back into the swing of things, we to have a go at a fun Fruit Salad rather than popcorn and sweets for our after school snack. It didn’t quite turn out like the picture below, but we had fun and enjoyed doing it. You can use all kinds of fruit, not just the ones mentioned below. Then use some fun cutters to cut out some shapes and voilà!
