{New Release} Family Night In – Ferdinand

Friday nights look a lot different than they did pre-kids. These days life is a lot tamer. Take tonight for example, we will be enjoying a family night in to watch Ferdinand. We missed it when it came to cinemas and after seeing the trailers for the film, I cannot wait to watch it now that it has been released on DVD.

Ferdinand Synopsis

Just in case you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard of Ferdinand, Ferdinand is a giant bull with an even bigger heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast and torn from his home, he rallies a misfit team of friends for the ultimate adventure to return to his family. The film is based on the classic children’s book written by Munro Leaf in 1936. Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover!

Ferdinand movie night

We are making the most of our family night by turning it into a full-blown fun hub for the kids. The mattresses moved out to the living room for a sleep out, snacks aplenty and more fun activities than we can possibly fit into the night. Plus a few other hilarious and feel good animated movies.

We made these plants in a can yesterday so now we wait 15-21 days for something to happen. Full disclosure, I am where plants go to die so the survival and success of this activity lies solely on the kids. Stay tuned for progress.
