Summer: Kids home. Sun. Fun. And let's face it: there will be days you'll need to turn on a movie so you can get stuff done!

Never fear, Netflix is here.

Check out all the new kids' movies you and your little ones can take in from the comfort of your own home in June.

Have a hankering for Christmas in June? How the Grinch Stole Christmas is available on Netflix starting June 1. The animated flick The Ant Bully is also available from that date.

Inspector Gadget hits the channel June 2.

In the mood for hugs, singing, dancing, adventure, and awesomely-colorful hair? Good thing Trolls comes out June 7.

Of course, the most exciting new release of the summer is Disney's Moana, which my kids have watched 100 times, so what's 100 more? It's available June 20!

So grab the popcorn, get everyone in jammies, and put Netflix and chill on your family's summer bucket list.

Meanwhile, it's not all kiddie-related in June on Netflix. After the little ones hit the hay, parents can enjoy movies like 13 Going on 30 (a personal fav that is also appropriate for older kids), The Queen (love Helen Mirren!), The Sixth Sense (so not a good idea to let kids watch, if you ever want them to sleep again), and The Bucket List.
