When we try to settle down the siblings, one says up, the other says down. One says in, the other says out. Siblings are notorious for going in opposite directions. And my two are no different. Usually a good adventure is the perfect way to get them on the same page, but when it’s time to settle down and watch a show before bed, we’re back to cats and dogs. There are a handful of shows that get them both excited. But those are never the ones they gravitate to when the huge list of choices pop up on Netflix. It’s an all out battle over who gets to choose.
Seems like we’re not the only family with this problem. So Netflix has created Netflix Siblings Playlists! What a great way keep everybody entertained.
If you have a toddler and a tween, check out the Tale of Two Distant Ages playlist. It features How to Train Your Dragon 2 – one of our favourites – Netflix Original Fuller House and more.
The Meet in the Middle playlist is a great option when the kids are pushing each other’s buttons. This one is all about fun. With 101 Dalmatians, The Adventures of Puss In Boots and that wacky All Hail King Julian, it has the power to break up the rivalry.
Then there’s the Sugar and Spice playlist where opposites attract. Here, there’s a little Lilo and Stitch, the Dawn of the Croods and Project MC2 can help you’re your sweet one and your sassy one settle in together.
We still have pretty little kids, and those lists will be perfect when they are a little older but until then, we’re loving My Lists. It’s my not-so-secret hack to make the sibling list just right for us.
My List means we don’t have to have the “Yo-kai Watch”… “No- Paw Patrol” battle every single night. Adding shows to My List is a snap. Just click the little check beside the title and you’re done.
Right now Peg+Cat and the classic Busytown Mysteries are getting the most play. But if one falls out of favour, I can trust My List will help them come to an agreement in no time. With (almost) no yelling.
