Summer arrived with great fanfare in our house! The kids had their summer bucket lists all drawn up and they included spending every day at the pool, running through the sprinklers, playing basketball until bedtime. It was a great dream until they remembered they live in Georgia and if the rain doesn’t ruin your plans, the 100 degree day with 95% humidity sure will.
When summer storms hit or the heat makes the pool feel like a bathtub, my kids turn into a sluggish mess of whines and “I’m boooooooooored” battle cries. Fortunately I can usually prevent a whining induced migraine with the help of some classic summer kids’ movies. On most days the home-bound blues can be thwarted with a big bucket of popcorn, some popsicles and a GREAT summer movie!
There are 5 movies that I consider essential for summer. These are the best of the best. The tried and true. The must sees.
“You’re killin’ me Smalls!” I can’t tell you how many times this phrase has been repeated in my house. The Sandlot is the perfect summer movie to watch with a group of friends. It is a movie that stands the test of time and will appeal to any generation, FOR-EV-ER.
Treasure hunts, pirates and booby traps? Hello?? If that doesn’t scream summer fun, I don’t know what does! I grew up with this movie watching it over and over. Now my kids are just as hooked. Watching the underdogs succeed never gets old!
The Princess Bride
“As you wish.” Of course this movie is on the list! What better way to spend a rainy summer afternoon than curled up on the couch watching epic sword fights, giants, ROUSs (Rodents of Unusual Size) and of course, Twue Wuv.
The Parent Trap (Original)
I’m not talking about the lame Lindey Lohan remake, I’m talking about the Hailey Mills orginal. The classic. The one with all kinds of summer fun and mischief. The Parent Trap was a huge part of my childhood and I’m determined to make it a part of my children’s as well!
Honey I Shrunk the Kids
A shrinking machine, ants the size of elephants and danger around every turn? OMG this movie just screams summer adventure!
