Five Great Movies for the Beach
Cast Away (2000) PG-13
Cast Away is the film that made the beach volleyball character Wilson a household name. The soccer ball becomes Tom Hanks’ BFF in this film about survival, loneliness, and never losing hope. Tom Hanks plays the tanned man who lives for years on a desert island after he survives a plane crash. The tropics are gorgeous, but life alone can be rough. Good thing Hanks has a bunch of FedEx packages wash to shore to help him survive.
Jaws (1975) PG
With Jaws, director Steven Spielberg introduced us to a fear we never knew we had...the rogue shark! Who could ever forget the brilliance of Robert Shaw as the maniacal sea dog Quint. or that famous attack theme we all know and love. Whether you are young or old this is a fun movie that is sure to scare the pants off everyone in the family together. The kids will even get a kick out of the old-style special effects.
Family Movie Night Snacks
Baked Zucchini Chips
Ok, so we knew we must have at least one healthy snack, but don't worry we won't ruin movie night completely. The sugar comes later. These crispy baked zucchini chips are just the right blend of health and taste that won't drive the kids away and will make mom proud. Give them a try.
Milk and Cookies
Everyone loves milk and cookies, and this is a fun and simple way to combine the two into a neat treat the whole family will enjoy. After all, dunking cookies in a cold glass of milk makes for a perfect evening no matter what.
