The holiday season is one of the busiest times for travel – lots of us visit friends and family out of town. Sometimes it involves long car rides, other times train or plane travel may be involved. No doubt the season is busy enough as it is with all the shopping for presents and groceries, the decorating, the baking, the wrapping and the visiting. The last thing you need is another thing to worry about – that’s where Netflix comes in. They have you covered for your holiday travel – and we don’t mean just ‘you’ – they have everyone in your family taken care of from the little kids right up to the big kids!
Lets start with the little ones – the last thing you want after packing up the car with all the presents, appetizers and hostess gifts is to entertain the kids in the car. You’ve been on your feet all day and just want the hour drive to Aunt Sally’s to be relaxing for you. Cue Netflix – just make sure you have the Ipad packed, an extra battery pack just in case, some headphones and you are good to go! With shows like Beat Bugs and Word Party your littles are sure to be entertained for the drive! (don’t forget the Cheerios for those “I’m hungry” moments!)
For those bigger kids it’s basically the same drill – make sure an Ipad/device is packed, throw in a fidget spinner or 2 to keep their hands busy – and may want a snack as well so they don’t fight over the Cheerios! With great shows like Troll Hunters and Skylanders Academy they will be distracted for the ride.
Tweens – we all know we want to avoid any conflict or attitude as we want to arrive at Aunt Sally’s as a happy family! So best let the tweens in your life bring their own device, plug in their headphones and watch Stranger Things or Riverdale. Fuller House Season 3 is coming out soon as well! They’ll love you for it!
Can’t forget you over the holidays – maybe you don’t want to plug in while driving/travelling but make sure you take some down-time after the busy days! Lots of great shows to keep you entertained over the holidays – Season 2 of The Crown starts Dec 8th and Orange is the New Black is always a good one. Happy Streaming!
