Enjoy the cinema experience at home with your kids

We can’t go to the cinema at the moment, but we can still enjoy a movie night at home. Here is a list of 8 ideas to make you feel like you’re at the movies.

  • Choose a movie from a streaming service or from your own collection of DVDs that everyone will enjoy watching.
  • If you can’t agree, write down a few movie titles on pieces of scrap paper and have a lucky dip – whichever movie is drawn is the final decision!
  • To make it a bit more fun, design movie tickets for everyone – this could be a job for the kids.
  • Make some popcorn.
  • Get out the beanbags, cushions and blankets (if it’s a bit cold) and make sure everyone is comfortable.
  • Close the curtains or blinds to make the room dark.
  • Sit back, relax and enjoy the movie.
  • Have a short break in the film to get your choc tops out of the freezer!

Make your own choc tops!

To make it a true cinema experience, you can even make your own choc tops.

Ingredients (makes 12)

  • 12 flat-bottomed ice-cream cones
  • 1 litre ice-cream (you choose)
  • 200g chocolate
  • 2tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Stand the ice cream cones on a tray and add a scoop of ice cream to each one (push it down firmly into the cone to it won’t fall out when you dip it in the chocolate).
  2. Freeze for 20-30 mins.
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (20-30 seconds at a time, stirring in between) until melted and smooth.
  4. Add the vegetable oil, stir & allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  5. Dip the ice cream into the melted chocolate, shake off the excess and return to the freezer to set.
  6. Try not to eat them all at once!
