I received the first pack that Horror Pack sends out.

My package included: The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Orphanage, The Barber and Pro-Wrestlers vs. Zombies. 

I was very excited to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose since that’s one I have wanted to see but keep forgetting to get it at the store to check it out.  It was intense and the fact it was based on real events made it more interesting.

Pro-Wrestler vs. Zombies was really funny and great to watch since a lot of my favourite wrestlers from when I was a child was in this movie. (Rowdy Roddy Piper and Kurt Angle)

The Orphanage was intense and I had to close my eyes a lot watching it. Guillermo Del Toro never lets you down with this movies. They deliver the fright you want. I have never seen this one before either but I think I found a new favourite!

The Barber was good and Malcolm McDowell was the perfect actor for this film.  I wish there was more scary moments where you didn’t know if you should hide your eyes or watch. It needed more but it was good movie.

All in all I enjoyed the Horror Pack Subscription I received and can say that I will be signing up to enjoy this again. I wonder what my next 4 movies will be?

Swagbucks Pays: For the Movies!

 

 

 

We all love going to the movies during the summer. Whether you prefer the biggest blockbusters or the sweetest romantic comedy, Swagbucks can get you into the movies for free!

 

Swagbucks is a rewards site that gives you points called “Swag Bucks” for things like searching, watching videos & browsing articles. You redeem those Swag Bucks for gift cards to places like Amazon, PayPal — and yes, even to the movies.

I save my Swagbucks throughout the year for purchasing Christmas gifts at the end of the year. I have bought several gifts for FREE by using Swagbucks!

 

 Here’s how Swagbucks can help you can turn watching videos online into your watching movies in the theater for free: Earning 2,200 SB gets you enough for a $25 movie gift card from Cineplex!

 

gift card

Whether you’re on the go, at home, or stuck at a desk, here’s how you can get your $25 movie gift card in just 2 weeks:  

 SBTV mobile on Android & iOS: Earn up to 36 SB per day watching everything from food videos & news to Hulu clips & music videos – 504 SB

Moviecli.ps app on Android & iOS: Get 18 SB per day watching the latest movie trailers – 252 SB

EntertaiNOW app on Android – You can also earn another 18 SB per day checking out news on movies and TV shows, behind-the-scenes interviews and celebrity gossip – 252 SB

SBTV on Desktop: (I use this the most) Watch a little bit of everything during the week, including Hulu clips & music videos, but with a higher earning cap of 150 SB per day. Keep your weekends free and still earn Monday to Friday! – 1500 SB

When you have a specific SB goal (like a $25 Cineplex gift card) and a plan of action, you’ll get gift cards faster and check out the newest action-comedy or Oscar-nominated drama without spending extra money. There are even more ways to earn SB online, so take a look around and see what works best for you. You don’t have to wait until the next blockbuster comes out to start saving up with Swagbucks!

Fun Indoor Activities for Kids

 

 

 

 

Rainy days are never fun and a lot of time end up with at least one child saying, “I’m bored!”

The best way to solve that is have a few things to do for the day to keep the  children busy!

Here is a easy list of some ideas that you and your children can do together.

TTVBN11406045045

 

 

Rainy Day Activities:

  1. Indoor Camping ~ My siblings and I use to do this often indoors. We did it with chairs and sheets or using thumb tacs to hang up sheets on our walls. We use to cover one end of the livingroom to the other with sheets and placed our pillows down for comfort.  We would colour and eat under there. Even watch a movie while laying under there. You can also use an small dome tent if you have one. And set it up inside.

  2. Board Games ~ When I was a kid I loved playing Monopoly on a rainy day. Turn off all electric devices, get some drinks and snacks and play some board games! Fun for the whole family and memories that will last a lifetime! No board games in your home? Get a pen, paper and a hat. Write out words and put them in a hat (movies are also good) and play charades!

  3. Baking ~ Check to see what you have on hand and bake something with the kids. Take it a step further and have them help make supper. A great way to teach them what goes in to preparing a meal. It doesn’t have to be a fancy supper. Do something as simple as sloppy joes with cupcakes for desert!

  4. Movie Day~ Pick a few movies out and sit down with popcorn, snacks and drinks. Enjoy the movies together. (I love doing old 80s movie days)

  5. Have a Tea Party ~ Have each child bring their favourite doll or stuff animal. Make sandwiches & cookies. It doesn’t have to be tea, it can be milk in the tea cups.

  6. Colouring~ Sit down with some crayons and colour with the kids. Put the finished products on the fridge!  Check the Crayola website for free colouring pages you can print. CLICK HERE to go to the site page

  7. Treasure Hunt ~ Hide some objects around the house. (limit the amount of rooms to make it easier. ) Give the children a list of clues. Older they are the harder the clues.

 

What are some fun activities for your children to do on a rainy day?
