Netflix for Kids Blog: Our Shrek Themed Afternoon

Is there a thing as too much sunshine? If you’re out of sun cream, gotten your annual quota of Vitamin D or just need an easy afternoon indoors, Erin has a fun way to turn your Netflix movie into an entire afternoon of fun!

But, there comes a time in every stretch of amazing sunshine that you just need to cool off! Inside!

To alleviate the guilt of staying inside while the sun streamed in the windows, we had an entire little Shrek themed afternoon!

To get our monster juices flowing I popped open the laptop, plugged in an HDMI cable to the TV and watched a few episodes of Shrek Stories on Netflix. Easy, peasey, lemon-squeezey!

The rest of the afternoon was spent adventuring around the house with a stuffed Hello Kitty as Puss in Boots and plastic horse as Donkey.

It was a blast, guilt be gone!
