Five Best Summer Outdoor Movies

We are a member of the Netflix Stream Team

One of my favorite things to do with the kids during the summer is to put up a screen in our backyard and stream one of our favorite Netflix summer movies. There is something magical about watching outdoor movies under the twinkling stars.

Whenever we plan an outdoor summer movie, our kids invite all their friends to come over. The kids start early by setting up their blankets and pillows, so they are comfortable outside during the movie. While the kids are getting set-up, I am busy in the kitchen making special movie themed snacks for the kids to enjoy.

You don’t need to have a fancy screen to have an outdoor summer movie. Before purchasing our screen, we would use a giant bed sheet, the side of our house and even the garage. All you need is an outdoor movie projector (which can be found reasonably priced on craigslist) and Netflix to stream your movie.

Wondering what movie to stream for the kids this summer? These are our five favorite summer films to stream on Netflix to watch outside with your kids this summer!

Moana! Our kids got so excited when Moana came to Netflix, and it is a great summer movie to watch outside especially if you have a pool or spa in the backyard.

Trolls! This fun loving movie is a favorite of both boys and girls. Plus, the parents will enjoy it too.

The Jungle Book! It is the perfect summer movie to watch in the backyard. Your kids can watch the adventure unfold while sitting in their own “backyard jungle.”

E.T! This classic movie is a favorite of everyone and is perfect for your next outdoor movie.

Grease! For older children, this classic movie is one of my favorites to watch during the summer. Netflix currently has the original version of this great movie.
