Netflix Sibling Playlists: What Will Your Kids Watch? #StreamTeam

Posted April 25, 2016 by Jodi

netflixsiblingplaylistsSometimes we get busy and the boys have to share a spot to watch Netflix in the house which can lead to “I wanna watch this…” and “No I don’t wanna see that, it’s for babies.” kinda of words being thrown about. Well, before the tantrums come and fists fly, I’m glad that Netflix has us covered by introducing Sibling Playlists. It’s awesome to have lists of different movies for different ages and categories siblings can pick and choose from because siblings that stream together stay together. This is a great playlist for both my 10 year old and 16 year old as it’s not for babies and is loaded with fun, action and adventure both the boys love. If one kid is sassy and the other one is sweet, then this playlist geared for perfection with a mix of lego, friends and fun. And if you still can’t decide then meet in the middle has something for everyone. Fun, laughter and penguins. I mean who does’t love those silly penguins? Mom & Dad’s Lists Since we didn’t want to feel left out of the loop both hubby and I created a list of movies we’d like to share we […]
