Grab the popcorn!
This holiday season, round up the family for a movie night that's sure to satisfy both young and old. We love these unique and kid-friendly movies for those cozy winter evenings with your loved ones.
If you feel a little bad that your child's exposure to the classics is mostly Britney Spears circa 2001, bring classical masterpieces to life with the movie Fantasia. In this Disney movie from 1940, classical music inspires fanciful and imaginative cartoons that will instill a love of music and creativity in your child.
The 1941 movie Dumbo is short and sweet, and it teaches viewers about the beauty of uniqueness. Have your family watch as young Dumbo is teased for his differences but ultimately comes out on top. As a mother, you're sure to cry when you watch Dumbo's mother stand up for her son as he's bullied.
Most talking-animal movies are of the caliber of Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, but the 1995 film Babe is a rare exception. This heartwarming story follows the pig Babe as he learns sheepherding and makes his owner proud. We love it because the pig's personality might just remind you of the personality of a certain preschooler in your home.
The Princess Bride
Even though The Princess Bride was not wildly popular when it was released in 1987, it has since garnered a cult following and critical acclaim. Besides its humor, the movie is romantic and exciting enough for all viewers. We like that the movie provides ample opportunities for family banter with favorite quotes that will last for years to come.
It's a Wonderful
