Over 75 Movies for Tweens that you can enjoy

I am so excited for summer!! I love later bedtimes and sleeping in and that there’s no baseball, soccer, football, and lacrosse practice. It’s so nice to be unscheduled and can just chill!  

I love finding movies for tweens to show my 2 boys who are 11 and 13.   I love to see their faces when a good story comes on and not just a silly cartoon.

Now that my kids are getting older, movie night is much more fun! We love watching Netflix and we’re always streaming TV shows.  I’ve recently signed up for DVD’s again and gotten some good movies that our family has loved! You can really get some good ones that you can’t stream.  

Just go to your Netflix account and add DVD’s to your plan.  It’s easy to do.

I tried to come up with some movies both girls and boys would like.  My daughter is only 8 so I had a harder time with those and tried to think back at the movies I liked! 🙂

Does your family like having movie night? Here are some great movies for tweens that you will enjoy too. Grab the popcorn!

We took a break from movies for a couple of weeks and streamed Stranger Things.  Both my boys loved this show and recommend it to your family.  We can’t wait for season 3!

Before you get to the list, I want you to see our new favorite movie popcorn!  It’s so good.  We’ve been having it all summer. It’s honey cinnamon and so EASY!  It’s a nice change from regular popcorn and perfect if you have a sweet tooth.

Don't just have plain old popcorn. This EASY cinnamon honey popcorn is great for an afternoon snack or perfect for movie night.

    I wanted to visit DVD.com and check it out, but I hate sites that want you to register before they will even let you look around. No thanks!
