A Day at the MoviesYour Little has most likely seen all the newest blockbusters (maybe some more than a few times), but have they ever watched Singin’ In the Rain or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? How about Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music? Find your favorite childhood movies and have your own film festival - complete with popcorn, pop, and candies.

Give yourselves manicures, pedicures, and face masks, and enjoy a nice cup of tea or cocoa. You Little will enjoy feeling like an adult for an afternoon!
