Celebrate this festive season with M-Net Movies

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year! It’s the only time it’s okay for me to sing a carol at home, eat mince pies and watch Christmas movies although I wish I could do it all the time.

I  love cuddling with my husband and daughter while munching on some popcorn watching a festive movie. Movies always get me in the Christmas spirit and every movie teaches you something. I just wish more movies would share the real story behind Christmas.

Christmas Movie night

Throughout the month, as we countdown to Christmas Day, we watch a lot of movies. It’s become a tradition at home and Kitana finally understands who Anta aka Santa is. (Toddler lingo is so cute). She get’s so excited when she sees “him” on TV and can sit for hours watching movies (we only watch TV once a day).

I’m so excited that M-Net movies has scheduled a fun family movie every day at 4pm on DStv channel 105.

Kitana and I will be spending time together catching up on old movies while we prepare for Christmas crafts afterwards.

With schools closing soon, we need lots of activities to keep kids occupied at home. I love arts and crafts and this year I received a cute little package from M-Net Movies filled with exciting activities to do with Kitana. She absolutely loves birds so this is going to be a big surprise for her.

M-Net Movies will be hosting kiddies DIY activity sessions this weekend to get your little-makers excited.

Expect a photo booth, games, colouring-in stations, qualified child minders and activity packs to take home – themed around the festive movie line-up. How awesome does this sound? The perfect excuse to get some shopping done while your little one is entertained.

The Johannesburg activation can be found at Fourways Mall from 5- 7 December between 10am – 3pm.

Santa Clause

This weekend you can catch up on your favorite movies:

  • Santa Clause 3 
  • Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
  • So Undercover

M-Net Movies has so many activities available on their Pinterest page. These are themed according to the daily film so you and your child can enjoy your creations while watching the 4pm movie.

Today’s Movie is: Santa Paws 2 – The Santa Pups.

“When Mrs. Claus travels to Pineville, the playful Santa Pups stow away on her sled. Taking mischief to a whole new level, they begin granting joyful wishes to Pineville’s boys and girls, but after a boy named Carter wishes for the Christmas spirit to disappear, it affects all of the people in town. Mrs. Claus, Carter, Sara, the pups, and three sisters Mrs. Claus met try to bring the Christmas spirit back. They do this by airing on the radio and convincing everyone to act like normal. ”
