One of the only things that get me down about living in Vancouver is how much it RAINS! As much as I would love to say that I’m one of those people who layers up and ‘gets out there’ for outdoor adventure even when it’s pouring rain… I really am NOT that person.
I hibernate when it’s gross out. I make tea like it’s going out of style. I wear slippers. I wrap myself in at least one blanket. I light a candle. And, in the evenings… I watch shows. My girls definitely follow in mommy’s footsteps when it comes to dreary weather. Cozying up with steamed milks and their favourite Netflix shows is our average rainy evening.
Luckily, Netflix is constantly adding new shows and movies to their roster. I know kidlets are all about watching their favourite shows on repeat, but sometimes I really just need to see something else, to maintain some sanity. I’m excited about one of the latest additions to the kids section (ok- let’s me honest, I’m the one who laughs the hardest at this little guy!)
Puss in Boots!!! He has his own spin-off! Remember Puss from the popular Shrek Forever After movie? Well, as of January 16, Puss is staring in his own series called The Adventure of Puss in Boots!
The world’s greatest fighter, lover and milk connoisseur springs into action with comical tales that take him to exotic locations, filled with unforgettable characters. As Puss embarks on adventures that are the stuff of legend, nothing can stand in the way of this swashbuckling hero … except a hairball!
Make sure you check out this new series this weekend, and if you’re looking for some fun ideas to accompany this show while you beat the rain this weekend, check out this cute snack idea and equally cute art project for the kiddies.
Puss in Boots is a great example of an enduring and entertaining children’s tale based on a book. Here are some other great literature-based titles available on Netflix:
2. The Red Shoes
3. Harold and the Purple Crayon
4. Stuart Little: The Animated Series
