Growing up in the 80s, Star Wars was very much a part of my childhood. I remember watching the movies with my cousins, and we had an interest for all things Star Wars related. We collected the action figures and toys, and we even pretended to be our favourite characters.
I’m excited that now, my daughter is interested in Star Wars. Her friend had a Star Wars birthday party, and Little One dressed up as Obi-Wan Kenobi! That was a proud Mom moment!
It’s almost as though I’m reliving my childhood when I watch my old favourite movies with her. You can imagine how excited I was when Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out on Netflix!
Netflix members in Canada are now able to stream Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If that’s not enough of a Star Wars fix, you can also catch up on the last days of the Galactic Republic with the entire Clone Wars series and feature film right now.
With the Clone Wars and The Force Awakens now on Netflix, families can bond over a beloved franchise that parents grew up with and kids will love. It really is special bonding with my child over movies I enjoyed as a kid. I’m so glad she has expressed an interest in the franchise. She has been asking for family movie night to be a Force Awakens night! She really enjoyed watching it with us. To be honest, the first time we watched it together, I fell asleep because I was so exhausted, but Little One and Hubby managed to stay up and finish the movie. She loved it so much that she wanted to watch it again — this time when I was more awake!
Streaming on Netflix:
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens (version canadienne-française)
- The Clone Wars – Seasons 1 – 6
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Of course, family movie night would not be complete without a fun snack! Since it’s a Star Wars: The Force Awakens night, Wookiee Cookies were in order. Sadly, I didn’t get to snap any photos. I forgot to take photos and the cookies were eaten quickly.
To make bonding over Star Wars even more fun, these Wookiee Cookies are the perfect snack for Netflixing Star Wars!
How adorable are those Wookiee Cookies? We will make these again soon, and next time I promise to take some photos!
Let me know if your family is watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens or if you try making the Wookiee Cookies!
May the Force be with you!
