Going to the movies is an exciting new adventure that can also be intimidating for your little one, especially if it’s one of their first experiences. It involves new sensory experiences, like seeing their favorite characters on a giant screen, watching in the dark, loud noises, and a theater full of people. These helpful hints will power you up for PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, and help prep your family for a fun-filled and memorable movie date!

Quick Tips

Discuss Expectations

Set the scene for them ahead of time to help them feel prepared. Let them know it will be dark and that they should try to be quiet and respectful of the other moviegoers. Also talk about the exciting aspects of watching a movie with an audience, like laughing with other people!

Bring Snacks from Home

Call your local theater to see if they allow outside food. If they do, let your child help you choose some quiet snacks that they would enjoy during the movie, plus one special treat for this special outing!

Comfort Is Key

Help your mighty PAW Patrol fan be as comfortable as possible. Encourage them to dress up as their favorite character, bring their go-to stuffed pup, or even a cozy blanket. If your child is sensitive to loud noise, consider bringing earphones or check with your theater for sensory-friendly showtimes.

Get the Zoomies Out

Set aside some time for a wiggle session! Before you head into the theater, jump, stretch, and run in place so they’re ready to relax once the on-screen action begins. Be sure to visit the restroom ahead of time, and know they may need to go again during the movie. Agree on a special signal (hand squeeze or phrase) they can use to alert you if they need a break.

Keep the Excitement Going

The movie doesn’t end at the credits! Your child will likely be eager to talk about it afterwards. Ask them which part they liked best, their favorite character, and if anything surprised them. Take advantage of any photo ops at the theater so you can always remember this special day together.
