Best Movies Kids Must Watch While Growing Up

While movies are mostly known for entertainment, it’s also a great source of knowledge and information for everyone, especially for kids — as long as you let them watch the right movies for their age. Kids are always curious. They always want to know things, and you have to feed their minds with the right information so that they can take those as they grow up. Fortunately, there are numerous movies, specifically written and produced for kids to watch.

Let’s dive into these kid-friendly movies you need to have your children, nephews, and even younger siblings watch to keep them entertained while instilling good morals in their minds. These movies are also available on major streaming services, like Netflix, Hulu, DISH TV, Apple TV, and more.

Family Fun At Home Idea: Outdoor Movie Night

Today is our last day of school here and while our state is opening everything slowly, my family and I aren't quite ready to venture out yet. Normally, we are very social and we love going out to entertainment venues or traveling, so this staying at home life has been difficult for us to adapt to. I have trying my best to come up with activities for my kids to enjoy at home and I thought why not bring the movie theater to us. I received this projector a while back to review. But an at home movie night can be accomplished without a fancy video movie projector. Amazon and Disney+ are releasing movies early so you could rent one, make a bowl of easy monster popcorn, and curl up on your couch with the ones you love.

Bring Home Abominable TODAY + Giveaway

I received a complimentary copy of ABOMINABLE from Dreamworks Animation to provide this post. But, as always, all opinions are my own.

If you have been following me on Instagram, then you know my daughter had a slumber party for her 9th birthday. She had so much fun! We played games and made ornament crafts, but the hit of the night was getting to watch ABOMINABLE.

ABOMINABLE is “an epic, colorful journey home. Beautiful and exhilarating to behold” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times). From the studio that brought you How to Train Your Dragon, this heartwarming and humorous story follows teenage Yi (Bennet) as she encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in China, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Paulson) to help Everest get home.

"Dora and the Lost City of Gold" on Digital & Blu-Ray + Giveaway

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner, Instant Family) for her biggest challenge yet – high school. When her parents mysteriously disappear while searching for the Lost City of Gold, Dora must swing into action and lead a group of ill-equipped high schoolers on a wild quest to save them. Hold on for a high stakes mission as Dora and her new friends navigate the jungle, outrun treasure hunters, and solve ancient puzzles to unlock the mystery of the fabled city.

Dora is all grown up in this new tale that actually has a playful nod to the original cartoon. My step-sister grew up loving Dora and being only a few years older while still loving cartoons, I loved her too. So when my daughter and I went to the movies, we saw the trailer for "Dora The Lost City of Gold" and were very excited. So we are thrilled to own it on digital and Blu-Ray now. And we loved the kit Paramount sent that included a Maglite as well!

Bring Home "The Lion King" Collectible Steel Book at Best Buy

This post is sponsored by BestBuy. All opinions are my own.

As the weather cools down, is there really a better way to spend time as a family than movie night? It is no secret that I believe every night should be a Disney movie. There were so many awesome Disney movies released this summer and I am so excited to be bringing them home! Disney released their classically animated movies reimagined and available today, you can watch Lion King in the comfort of your own home!

Director Jon Favreau’s fantasy drama film is a computer animated remake of the 1994 animated Disney film of the same name. Disney’s "The Lion King" journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival.

Creepy, Kooky, Spooky Addams Family is BACK!

Who's creepy, kooky, Mysterious, spooky, and all together ooky? Yay for October and all things Halloween! Who has already started watching Halloween movies? This girl! One of my favorites is The Addams Family and Addams Family Values! I love how 90s they are. I think the reason I love them so much is because I remember them coming out and my dad taking me to see them. Did I get all the jokes? Probably not. But they are still Halloween classics. I love that there is now a two movie collection available on Blu-Ray so I can share the nostalgia with my kids!

Never Give Up with Captain Marvel on Blu-ray, DVD, & 4K TODAY

What an appropriate shirt for my daughter to wear while sharing that Captain Marvel is on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K TODAY! We loved this movie. My family loved the never give up theme and we surely fell in love with Goose too.

Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. When we first meet Danvers, she already possesses her superhero powers, having left her earthly life behind and become a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member­, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
