Make Travel Easier With Netflix

travel easier with netflix

During the busy holiday season travel seems to be at the top of most peoples lists. Whether you are flying across the world, the country or just driving across the city to visit family and friends, make travel easier with Netflix.

Make Travel Easier With Netflix

1 in 5 Canadian parents say one of their main concerns when travelling is keeping their kids entertained. With the holidays just around the corner, parents can look to offline viewing on Netflix to keep everything, and everyone, under control while on the go.

From the tried-and-true shows you can rely on like Beat Bugs and Luna Petunia to calm any meltdown, to discovering new show obsessions like Stretch Armstrong & The Flex Fighters, Netflix downloads are a must-have travel essential for parents and their kids. 

Little Kids, Big Essentials. 

Have a LO at home that can manouver the phone to their fave episode of Paw Patrol? Stock up on their fave shows like Super Monsters, Word Party, Beat Bugs and Octonauts as well as their fave (sugar-free) snacks and beverages to finally put an end to the ‘are we there yet?’

Happy Kid, Happy Trip

I won’t even lie when my kids learned how to read and could figure out that we are indeed not even close to our destination travel became just a little bit harder. Now they have their own tech and can download their fave shows without my help. If you’re a nice mom you can surprise them with shows like Skylanders Academy, Troll Hunters, Julie’s Green Room and the Magic School Bus. Headphones and a fidget spinner will make sure that the car stays relatively quiet.

Be the Cool Parent

I know that this list says teen but my tweens have already watched and rewatched these choices. They wouldn’t complain if they were downloaded on their iPads though. Get them to rewatch Stranger Things and make you feel old when they say that the whole show is make-believe because no one could live like that. FYI we could, it was called the 80’s

Upgrade Your Flight. 

Now that you’ve taken care of the kids needs its time to totally take care of your own. Watching Crown before season 2 comes out is my biggest suggestion but Ozark, OITNB, Making a Murderer and Narcos will keep you on the edge of your seat as well.

    It would be a good idea. We sometimes do audio books, but this is just as good.

    When my 7 were little we unfortunately didn’t have smart phones and we were lucky if the plane showed a movie suitable for the kids. These must help enormously to help keep the kids entertained during a flight.
