10 Movie Recommendations When You’re Sick, Snowed In, or Stuck at Home #NetflixKids

10 Movie Recommendations When You’re Sick, Snowed In, or Stuck at HomeWe’ve had one heck of a crazy weekend here in Texas. We endured a stomach bug AND a winter storm almost simultaneously (and we’re gearing up for more icy weather again)! Having the kids unexpectedly at home for both reasons, it’s tough to keep them occupied, especially when they’re sick and feeling too punky to do anything that exerts too much energy.

I am so thankful for our streaming Netflix service, so the kids can watch whatever shows and movies they’d like on any devices, especially while under quarantine. (I can super-clean my iPad, tablet, and game controllers later.) Here are six flicks that can turn sniffles into giggles.
