We're starting a "Friday Night Sleepover" tradition - movie ideas?

 I got the idea from a friend and I think my kids are ready to start! I'm excited - although they really have no clue what it is, haha. I'm sure after they experience one or two, they'll look forward to it from then on out. ideas? I have a few in mind so far, but I'd like to build up a list. Thanks!

(kids are 2.5 and nearly 5)

  • Aw. My daughters and i do that, but they're almost 10 and 13, so our movie choices are probably different. Any Disney movie would be good, I'm sure. They've probably already seen Monsters Inc? I NEVER get tired of that movie! So cute!

  • My daughter and her friends love Tangled and all of the Tinkerbell movies, but if there are boys...something like Monsters, Inc or Monsters vs Aliens might be better!

  • Wizard of Oz
    Willy Wonka (the original, not the new one)
    Pete's Dragon
    The Hobbit
    Neverending Story (maybe - the scene with the horse is kind of rough)
    The Last Unicorn

  • Last week I put that National Georgraphic documentary, Oceans, on for my 4 year old! She was glued to it with all the fish and weird underwater creatures. That might be something to try one night. And, it's educational. I think that is a super neat idea for movie night. I might have to plan something like that soon.

  • YES! That is the one. And we streamed it on netflix too!! I never thought of wildlife documentaries for my dd before we saw that. She asks tons and tons of questions through out the movie too. (Most of the questions were way too hard for me to answer too. LOL)

  • Oh Monsters Inc. will NEVER get old!! They don't like regular hand-drawn cartoons that much - it's usually a hit or miss with them. Although I could start trying them again to see how they react.
