Entertain Your Kids The Family-Friendly Way

(NAPSI)—Whether you’ll be home for the holidays or traveling, hosting parties or a guest at them, you may be glad to know it’s now easier than ever to keep kids entertained in the house and on the road.

An Entertaining Idea

That’s because they can now instantly watch on Netflix a huge range of age-appropriate entertainment on a TV, PC, Mac, iPad or game console.

Kids, parents, grandparents or sitters can scan through rows of movies and shows organized by easy-to-understand genres including superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs and girl power, with simple descriptions of each plot. Offerings include popular TV shows such as “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Dora the Explorer,” as well as various family-oriented movies. Kids can also recognize shows by clicking on images of their favorite characters (Big Bird, Thomas the Tank Engine) to find a great selection of TV shows and movies featuring that character.

All programs shown are completely commercial free. The Netflix “Just for Kids” tab at the top of the company’s main page leads to a special section featuring content aimed at the 12 and younger crowd. It will even personalize your kids’ viewing patterns so if, say, your daughter watches movies about horses, more options featuring horses will be presented.

To ensure a family-friendly viewing experience, without any exposure to violent or other not-age-appropriate programming, the site’s selections were picked using ratings and reviews from Common Sense Media, a leading nonprofit that provides independent, trustworthy ratings, reviews and information to help parents make great media choices.

Further Fun Ideas

• When you’re not busy, your family can create memories with new holiday traditions such as movie night: Make popcorn and cuddle with the little ones while watching together your favorite holiday shows, movies and TV characters.

• It can also be fun to find a fun holiday movie or TV episode and get in the spirit as you all wrap presents.

• For a present you don’t have to wrap, consider giving a Netflix subscription.
