The Best Family Movies to Watch with the Kids

The Best Family Movies to Watch with the Kids

Grab the popcorn, a comfy blanket and snuggle in to watch a movie the whole family can enjoy together! Here are our ideas of the best family movies to watch with kids!

Last week on the radio, they were talking about movies to queue up to watch with the entire family.

I decided my family should make our own list of our favorite movies to watch, so here is what we came up with! I came up with a lot of these that I remembered watching as a young girl. We chose Disney movies, kids movies, new releases and more!

I am sure you can find most of these movies on your streaming services like Amazon Prime and Netflix.

Grab the popcorn, a comfy blanket and snuggle in to watch a movie together! Here are our favorites for your next family movie night!
