Family Review of Daphne & Velma
Everyone in the family really enjoyed the movie. The movie has lots of girl power moments and highlights how you can do anything you put your mind to. I think the boys were rooting for them just as much as my daughter was. The chemistry between the actresses is evident and it was fun to watch the story unfold.
I really enjoy sharing characters I grew up watching with my kids. They see them in a different way and it is fun to see how the characters, settings, and stories are reimagined for a new generation.
Daphne & Velma has a G rating and I found it appropriate for all ages. The movie follows the Scooby Doo formula of solving a mystery but most of the characters are not scary at all. As in all of the Scooby Gang’s mysteries, it is solved at the end and is not as scary as we once believed it to be.
Daphne & Velma Family Movie Night Ideas
I like to do fun family movie night activities but for me it has to be simple. I prefer easy activities we can do with things we have around the house. We came up with a few fun ways to enjoy a Daphne & Velma Themed Family Movie Night.
- Create a “Who Did It?” Board. On a dry erase board or a piece of paper start a running list of who could be the mystery person. This is a great activity for families of all ages because everyone can participate.
- Daphne & Velma grow up in the movie and it is interesting to see them start to take on the personas we know and love. Create your own Mystery Gang outfit or character. This is super simple and can be with paper and crayons.
- Stock up on Mystery Snacks. Have Scooby Snacks. Create a mystery mix of popcorn, pretzels, etc.
We are big fans of all the Scooby Doo shows and movies. Seeing Daphne & Velma have their own story was a really fun way to enjoy another Mystery Gang Adventure. I can’t wait to see what the girls next adventure will be!
