Favourite Christmas movies for kids


A Christmas Story – Ralphie and his family have one heck of a holiday. While he’s busy avoiding the schoolyard bully and desperately trying to convince Santa to give him a bb gun, his family is fumbling their way to Christmas.
Christmas Vacation – Nobody does a holiday or vacation like Clark W. Griswold. Christmas Vacation is an all time family favourite…packed with humour that is enjoyable for everyone in the family.

Home Alone – When Kevin McCallister is left behind when his entire family goes away for the holidays, who would have known he would have such a hilarious adventure. Somehow Kevin manages to survive and outsmart a pair of pesky, bumbling thieves.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Despite his terrible attitude and the atrocious way the Grinch treats his puppy dog, we still love him. When his tiny heart explodes with Christmas spirit we cannot help but cheer for the Grinch.

A Christmas Carol – Put aside the colourful, funny movies of today and take a trip back in time with the help of Charles Dicken’s classic tale of the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge.

A Charlie Brown Christmas – Charlie and the rest of the Peanuts gang learn about the true meaning of Christmas through the wise words of blanket loving Linus. Take a trip through the artificial tree lot with the gang.

The Polar Express – If you haven’t read this award winning book with your children, it is a must for the holidays. The animated movie version of the story is a magical imagination of the tale. Can you hear the bell ring?


Elf – Will Farrell makes quite possibly the sweetest and most dedicated Christmas elf that ever lived at the North Pole. Just try and not catch the holiday spirit and sing along at the end of the movie.

White Christmas – Bing never sounded so good. The story of wartime buddies turned Hollywood superstars is a beautiful Christmas musical. Filled with nostalgia, beautiful costumes and a timeless love story…introduce your kids to this holiday classic.

The Muppets Christmas Carol – It wouldn’t be the holidays without the Muppets Christmas Carol. Michael Caine joins the Muppets as the cranky Ebenezer Scrooge as he experiences a transformative Christmas Eve.

In my "previous life" I was a mental health my current life I'm a stay-at-home mom with 2 beautifully adventurous kids. I share everything that lands on my kitchen counter over on my blog, Kitchen Counter Chronicles. Swing by and learn how we are greening their lives; what we are crafting; what we are cooking and what we are reading. While you will often find the girls and I inside the kitchen, you will also find us out and about getting our hands dirty, exploring and learning outdoors.
