    Default Tv on a playdate

    Just a lighthearted chat - but feel free to discuss if you wish!

    Is it bad that my dd and her best friend (both 5 but not yet at school), are watching a movie on their playdate? I envisaged trampoline/playing in the fairy tent/babies/dress ups. Well they are now both dressed up as fairies, on the couch watching thumbelina (oh and scoffing popcorn!) Least they are having a lovely chat to each other about what is going on.

    I don't know where you are located but it is terribly cold here. I think it sounds like fun. I loved thumbelina when I was a child. I'd rather do that then be at work lol

    I think it's fine, as long they aren't watching TV for the entire play date.

    No worries, if it's what they want to do. Especially if it's the right weather for a toasty TV session.

    If they were doing something they could do at home alone, I'd be a bit disappointed, but it sounds like they're having a good time together and still playing.

    That sounds like great fun getting dressed up, eating a healthy fun snack and watching a movie.

    Sounds like fun to me. All dressed up, chatting and eating together with a movie. A great play date in my book

    I love watching movies with my friends so why shouldn't children if that's what they want to do? As long as it's not movie after movie after movie..
