School holiday sanity saver for over-stretched moms!

So it’s the last stretch of the school holidays and if you’re anything like me the first day of school can’t come soon enough! Is it just me or are these school holidays much longer than usual??? January is feeling endless!

At least one saving grace for over-stretched moms at this time of the holidays is the awesome family movie scheduled for 4pm everyday on M-Net Movies (Channel 105) Now you can get all the kids (plus a few of the adults) onto the couch for the daily 4pm movie! And if you don’t have access to DStv Premium, you can enjoy the same fare on M-Net Movies Stars or if you can’t make it at 4pm, you can watch it at a more convenient time on the DStv Catch-Up services.

Some of the movies being screened this week include Wall-E, Despicable Me 2, The Croods, Chicken Run, Adventures in Zambezia, Planes, Sammy’s Adventure and Astro Boy. For the full schedule visit

And if you missed my post about the awesome M-Net Movies Family activation last month, you may like to pay a visit to the M-Net Movies Family Pinterest page which is filled with fun activities to keep little hands busy. The page is updated daily and the content is all related to the movie of the day, so you and your child can enjoy your creations while watching the movie!

And the good news is that these movies aren’t just happening throughout the holidays. The 4pm M-Net Movies Family slot will carry on throughout 2015 so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get creative or kick back and enjoy a classic movie with your little ones.

To find out more about the movie of the day and the activities you can do with your little people, visit the M-net Movies Pinterest page, and follow @MnetMovies on Twitter.

What’s your favourite family movie to watch with your kids?
