8 Christmas Movies to Watch With Your Kids

One fond memory I have of Christmas when I was growing up was watching classic Christmas movies every year. Now, I want to continue that tradition with my kids,  finding one or two movies that are their favorites, that they will look forward to watching, and will signal for them that Christmastime is here again.

Here’s a list of some of the best Christmas movies to watch with your young children.  Pop some popcorn, serve hot chocolate, turn on the lights of Christmas tree, snuggle up together with a fuzzy blanket, and start a family movie tradition with your kids this year!

  • Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer 1 of 8

    This movie is a classic that I remember from my childhood. Kids will love the story about the reindeer that is trying to find his place to fit in.
  • Mickey’s Christmas Carol 2 of 8
    Mickey's Christmas Carol
    The Disney version of this traditional Christmas story includes lots of different characters that make it entertaining for young children, and the message is a good one, but it also might be a little scary, so be sure to watch it with them.
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas 3 of 8
    A Charlie Brown Christmas
    A great classic story for young kids to relate to the true meaning of Christmas.
  • Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas A Story of Joyful Giving 4 of 8
    Veggie Tales: Saint Nicholas A Story of Joyful Giving
    My kids love Veggie Tales and this one tells the original story of St. Nicolas and teaches kids about meaning behind Santa and giving gifts.
  • Frosty the Snowman 5 of 8

    Another classic from my childhood, kids will be delighted by the snowman who comes to life and the race to save him from melting away.
  • The Nutcracker 6 of 8
    The Nutcracker
    There are a few different versions of this classic ballet. It may be a little slow at times for most children, but my daughter loved to watch the beautiful ballerinas dancing.
  • The Polar Express 7 of 8
    The Polar Express
    This great animated version of the classic book is sure to become a family favorite at our house.
  • Miracle on 34th Street 8 of 8
    Miracle on 34th Street
    Another classic, the original is black and white, and there is also a more modern version, this is a heart warming story for those who truly believe in Santa.

Of course, you should always screen movies before you watch them with you toddler to make sure that they are appropriate for you and your family.
