Rent a movie at the library!

If you’re tired of being stuck in the house every weekend because it’s too cold or there’s too much snow to go anywhere, how about a movie night? But not just a typical movie night.  This is something you could do with friends to make a really enjoyable evening, or gather the kids and get them involved in a favourite family movie.

Movie Bingo might not be the first thing you think of when watching a movie, but with a few minutes of preparation, you can elevate that simple experience of sitting down with a DVD into something fun.  Grab some snacks, give everyone a pencil and have a few prizes on tap for the winners.  It could be something as simple as a candy bar or a pack of stickers, or go really wild and get a gift card to a favourite store.  Then, fill out the blank cards with things to watch for in the movie (a sappy song, someone wearing a ponytail, someone walking a dog)…whatever you think you might see, and then slip the DVD into the player and get watching! (Remember to make each card a little different so that everyone has a chance to win). Just cross off the items as you see them, and give out the prizes! You could award a prize to the first line filled, to the four corners, an X shape, or the entire box.  It’s up to you.  But it will make the movie a lot more fun and everyone will have a wonderful time playing!

Don’t forget, we have almost 1000 movies to borrow from the library. Drop in and pick out up to four movies you can take home for a week. We have everything from documentaries to children’s movies to classics and more. And it doesn’t cost a thing.  We might not have the latest releases, but you’ll be sure to find something fun to take home. Make it a movie Bingo night!

(Thanks to Design Sponge for the fabulous idea!)
