Life can get incredibly busy and hectic as a family of five, some days I wonder how I even made it through the day alive! Some weeks can be so overwhelming and full of events that I can’t wait to spend an entire weekend just being at home with my family… no plans, no activities… no place to be! Something that we all enjoy during a lazy weekend is a family movie night where we make popcorn, delicious treats and enjoy a movie we all agree on. This is so beneficial for our family and I am going to share with you some of the benefits of a having a weekly movie night!

Here Are Some Benefits of Spending Time Together as a Family:

  • The benefits of family rituals (including psychological and emotional well-being) are well researched
  • Creates stronger family bonds and memories
  • Fosters communication between kids and parents (movies can be a great way to jump-start difficult conversations with your children)
  • Can lead to greater academic success
  • Could result in fewer behavioral problems
  • Greater Intimacy Among Parents
  • Family movie nights are affordable for everyone

Do you know what my favorite benefit of having a weekly family movie night? Siblings fight less and get along more!


Creating weekly traditions and great family memories are so important for children and they thrive from this interaction. We don’t have to spend every day rushing around to activities and staying busy until bedtime. Being able to slow down and reconnect with your children at the end of the week is the ideal way to start off the new week fresh. Whether it’s board games, raking the yard or an evening on the couch enjoying a family movie night… family time each week is such a simple and effective way to raise healthy and happy children!

  1. Family movie night is one of the best times in the home. Everyone is there and relaxed and it’s become a favorite tradition. I love how you said that children thrive from weekly tradition and family memories as well as being able to slow down and watch a movie together. My kids really love a wide variety of movies so we have to be sure to a large selection.
