My side of the family has a tradition for generations now to have Popcorn Family Night every Sunday night. As long as I can remember, my mom would make HUGE bowls of popcorn (imagine enough for the 10 people in my family!) and we would sit down as a family and watch a family friendly movie! It started with my dad's parents and his family and I am doing it now with my family! That is three generations of Popcorn Sundays!!
One thing I have learned doing a Family Popcorn and Movie Night in our family is there is definitely a lack of family friendly and wholesome movies out these days! It seems like even the "kid friendly" movies have bad words, violence, or things that I don't want my very impressionable son (who copies EVERYTHING!!) to watch!
That is why when I need a good movie with a great message and fun characters, I turn to VeggieTales! They always have great selection of movies to choose from and my son absolutely LOVES every single one he has watched!
The Penniless Princess—God’s Little Girl is the heart-warming story based on the children’s book A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The story, featuring plenty of engaging and fun music fit for families, including the all-new Silly Song “Best Friends Forever” and the featured song “No Matter What,” helps to teach an important lesson about knowing your own true worth and trusting God, no matter what happens in life. Other bonus feature include a special tour of London with the popular French Peas characters, a hilarious look at the history of the Teddy Bear, a discussion guide for parents, and behind-the-scenes clips.
Sweet Sarah Crew has everything a little girl could want – a loving family, lots of friends and a closet full of frilly dresses! But when life takes a turn and Sarah goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has, but what she has in her heart? Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales that reminds kids who they are in God’s eyes.
I also received a super cute and inspirational devotion book for girls but I think it is great for all kids. My son really enjoys reading the devotions each day as a family and I love that they are short and aimed to keep the attention of children while teaching a great lesson everyday! It is great way to study God's Word as a family!
