Movie studios are rallying around families stuck at home due to current quarantine recommendations and are bringing new releases to digital platforms sooner than originally expected. Walt Disney Studios made both The Call of the Wild, starring Harrison Ford and Downhill, starring Will Farrell available on digital on Friday, March 27th. Both of these films were in theaters in February of this year. Read on for a synopsis of each film PLUS download The Call of the Wild family fun activities.
St. Patrick's Day is here and while this year it certainly feels different it doesn't mean we can't have fun with our kids. Now more than ever we should be showing them how much fun we can have at home, with what we have readily available to us. This may mean watching more TV or it could be reading more books, doing more arts and crafts or a perfect mix of all of the above! Either way, we're all home and we're all making it work any way we can. That's why I've searched streaming services to find great St. Patrick's Day entertainment for toddlers and preschoolers that you can stream RIGHT NOW.
I love watching movies and have since I was a kid. I've always enjoyed animated films and I have been looking forward to having family movie nights since my first was born. Now that they're both toddlers (ahh!) we've tried it a few times and it has been so much fun! We pop popcorn, get under a blanket, and spend some quality family time together. My girls aren't old enough to go sit in a theater (they still get ants in their pants) but home-viewing has really been working for us and come April 7th, I know we'll add another animated film to our collection (one I'm super excited about), SWIFT. Learn more about this family film and download some fun, printable activity sheets!
Confession: I let me toddler watch TV. Shocking, I know. This is not to say the TV is on all day (or every day for that matter) but I do allow TV to be watched in our home because I enjoyed TV as a child and I think I turned out just fine. That being said, the shows my toddler watches are hand selected by me (even if she thinks she is picking the show). One of my toddler's new favorites is Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, currently airing on PBS Kids. This half hour show is split into two, easy to digest episodes with a break in-between that showcases real life kids. Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood is entertaining and also educational. Here are four lessons my toddler has learned from Daniel Tiger.

But have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the land of Playmobil? Enter PLAYMOBIL THE MOVIE. After visiting a museum with a Playmobil exhibit, Marla and Charlie are transported into the Playmobil world encountering Vikings, pirates, dinosaurs and a whole cast of funny characters.
Will Smith and Tom Holland are on the mission of a lifetime in SPIES IN DISGUISE. I am a huge Will Smith fan and have been looking forward to the home release of this film since I first saw a teaser trailer for it. I haven't been able to get to the movies as much as I'd like to with two little ones running around. They aren't quite old enough to sit still in the theater for an entire movie yet but I look forward to that day! I loved going to the movies as a kid and I can't wait to start taking mine. SPIES IN DISGUISE will make for the perfect family movie night I mean it has the Genie and Spiderman in it, what's not the love?

Since becoming a mom my trips to the movie theater have dwindled, significantly. Gone are the days where I see a preview for a movie I'm interested in and then go see it opening weekend. Now I try and remember commercials I see for films I want to watch once they are released for at home viewing. This is the case for Tom Hanks' latest film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. I was enchanted by Hanks' portrayal of Fred Rogers in the commercials and trailers and that's why I'm so excited to share that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood will be available on digital on February 4th and 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD on February 18th. This family film is rated PG and will be a bit old for my toddler but I know one thing she'll be interested in seeing, the bonus material featurette, Daniel Tiger Explains: Practice Makes Perfect.
