It can be hard to get our family in one room. E is headed to summer day camp and my husband works late nights. Sometimes our schedules can be hectic or conflict so creating meaningful family time is important, even if it’s doing something as simple as playing a game together or watching a film. FiOS has helped us create meaningful family time in a few different ways!
How we create meaningful family time with the help of FiOS!
Family Movie Night
Like a lot of families, We have a family movie night where we all sit together and watch a film. This night consists of quiet time, cuddles and snacks. It’s also a night where we typically order-in for dinner!
We have our favorite films we like to watch but there are plenty of movies out there that we haven’t seen so we try to be open to watching something new each week. There’s a pretty big On Demand selection of family friendly movies that all of us can enjoy. You also have to option to buy with some titles so if it’s a film that your family has enjoyed over and over again, if it’s available for purchase why not buy it? You can do it right from your TV or FiOS Mobile app!
When selecting a movie, I hit up Kids Zone Movies in the On Demand section on my FiOS Mobile App. Of course you can use your remote but for some reason, I find it much easier to browse On Demand titles using the app. You have the option to sort and filter by rating, genre, etc.
My husband obtained and XBox 360 a few months back and that has been something we can all enjoy together! Well, Aric can’t actually play but, we do give him a controller to explore while we’re doing our thing and it’s worked out well! 😉 E really likes playing the Skylanders games with her dad. I have fun playing as well! It’s a blast playing against each other in certain games and with each other in others.
E and I enjoy playing Tic Tac Toe and putting puzzles together on her tablet. There are some really fun family apps out there that both parent and child can enjoy together. There is even an app for the card game Uno and the board game Monopoly!
E owns a decent selection of children’s books which we’re always adding to. We’ve also been visiting the library to check out new books for us to read together. Sometimes we’ll download stories right to E’s tablet. It’s very convenient and the super fast speeds from FiOS allow us to download books within seconds! Kindle is out go-to app when we’ve read just about every story in E’s library at least a dozen times each and she wants to hear (or read) something new without taking a trip to the library or bookstore.
I’m glad I have a reliable network that provides lighting fast speeds allowing us to stream, play, and download which helps us to create that meaningful family time without lag. Plus, Only Fios lets us upload as fast as we can download. Your time with your family is precious so make those moments meaningful with the help of FiOS!
