Movies every 10 year old should watch this summer holiday.

Its summer and that can only mean one thing, sun soaked days relaxing on the beach or by a pool. You lie there without a care in the world while sipping on your Mojito or (insert beer brand here). But wait we live in the UK, so what are we thinking, we don’t get a summer holiday we get our very own seasons; autumn, winter, spring and spr-utumn, a season that looks like spring but is cold and wet like autumn.

With this in mind we are feeling the pain of every parent this summer holiday as the weather gets wetter, duller and did we mention wetter? Kids are stuck in doors as echoes of “I’m boorrrrrrrred!” and “I’ve seen this one before!” ring around the house. But don’t fret dear reader, once again we blog boffins at 8ball Towers are here to save the day the only way we know how – by 8balling it!

So let us be an interactive babysitter as we have cracked open the vault, dusted off the videos and compiled a summer holiday boredom buster, in the list of movies every 10 year old should watch this summer holiday.
