our dd s are 7 and 5 and once a fortnight or month we like to light a fire and watch a film together. Recently we have seen ET and Madagascar and are looking for further inspiration!

We have family movie night most Saturdays. The most successful by far was How to train your dragon - recommended by the video shop, kept out for a week and watched over and over again! We all loved it smile
