Mom in Training: Rainy day movies to keep kids entertained!

Rainy day movies to keep kids entertained!

With school letting out in the next few weeks pretty much everywhere it's time to start planning ways to keep kids entertained when it's raining and they can't go outside to play. I like to save movies I know they will love in my watch-list so they easy to access.

One of the cartoon series I saved to my list for my daughter is Rainbow Brite. I can remember watching Rainbow Brite as a child myself and always loved the adventures she went on with her horse Starlite. Another great series is Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures because it's great for all ages plus it's not just a time filler, kids can actually learn about animals from all over the globe.

Watch Rainbow Brite on Feeln for as low as $1.99
Join Rainbow Brite, her horse Starlite, and all her friends as they stand up against the forces of darkness to protect Rainbowland and keep the world colorful.

Watch Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures on Feeln for as low as $1.99
In this charming and educational series, Emmy Award-winning Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and best pal of the animals, Jack Hanna takes us on adventures around the globe to meet furry, feathered and finned friends. Children of all ages get close up looks as animals prove how smart and talented they are, while Jungle Jack shows us the importance of caring for our bio-diverse planet.

Sometimes you have a little time to fill, and sometimes you have a lot. Here are some great Feature-Length Movies that your kids might enjoy too!

Return to Nim's Island
The beauty of Australia's coast is on full display in this sweet film that follows the original Nim's Island movie. Nim, played by Bindi Irwin, is forced to take a step outside her comfort zone and make a human friend when she discovers that the island she and her father call home is to be sold. She and her new pal, Edmund, do everything they can to save the pristine island and all the animals that call it home.

Spy Kids
Nine years ago, top international spies Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez traded the excitement of espionage for the adventure of parenthood. But when they're called out on a secret mission, the Cortezes are separated from their family and kidnapped by the evil Fegan Floop. Fortunately, there are two people who possess the skills and know-how to reunite the family: Carmen and Juni Cortez, their spy kids.

A lonely little boy gets trapped in a mystical board game, spending decades lost in a savage wilderness. Then a pair of siblings discover the game, and by playing it, they open up their house to a herd of stampeding animals. Now the only way to get everything back in order is for them all to join up and finish the game together.

Let the magic back in your life with this enchanting second chapter to the story of Peter Pan. This time, a middle-aged Peter must duel the vengeful Captain Hook. On the line are the lives of Pan's children, and this is his opportunity to prove to them that they're the most important people in his world.

Whatever it is you need a time filler for Feeln has some awesome titles for you to choose from that are all kid friendly and definitely mother approved!
