Some of my favorite moments have been Family Movie Night. They spark conversation, encourage wild imagination and get us all in the same room together. With school cancelled and cabin fever setting in, we’ve created a movie list of must-watch movies before Snowmageddon 2015 ends!
It’s the first choice when the Ice Queen, Elsa, has visited! A movie more about sisterhood, family and love than snow. It will warm your hearts, have THAT song stuck in your head. Rated PG.
2. Finding Nemo
This was Miss M’s favorite movie as a toddler, and still the movie she makes us stop to catch a clip of on Netflix when it pops up. Bright colors and fun characters, and that catch phrase we tend to say for weeks after watchin, “Just keep swimming…just keep swimming”! Rated G.
3. Star Wars Series
Star Wars was the first movie I remember seeing with my parents at a drive in. It is also the first movie I was willing to sit through more than once. There’s a new Star Wars movie arriving December 2015, so may as well use snowmageddon to catch up on the epic sci-fi movie series! Rated PG.
This is Miss M’s favorite Disney Princess movie. It’s a fun one with Disney’s version of Rapunzel. Rated PG.
5. The Little Mermaid
I LOVE The Little Mermaid. It has unforgettable songs, amazing characters, a fairy tale ending and a whole lot of fun in the adventure.
6. Home Alone (1990)
Home Alone, an introduction to courage, bravery and an adventure of what we all probably think it’s like to be left home alone at 8 years old. Such funny moments in this movie. Rated PG.
7. The Goonies
I was 15 when The Goonies came out and I still love the adventure. Hidden treasure, secret caves, deadly traps—it’s so much fun, we’ve watched it so many times!
8. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
My kiddos relate to this movie. They love the wannabe scientist and think he’s brilliant as he accidentally makes food fall from the sky. Rated PG.
9 .Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
I remember watching this movie for the first time. I wanted a Golden ticket. I wanted a Chocolate factory. I wanted a world where everything is candy. Rated PG.
10. Charlotte’s Web
Wilbur is adorable and Charlotte is such an incredible friend. Watch this as the 1973 animated classic or the revised version with Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte. Rated G.
It’s been 27 years since this movie hit the theaters and it’s still a movie I love. It’s a movie I love to watch when my kiddos are talking about growing up–12 to 30 years over night–as a mom it sure seems it happens that fast! Rated PG.
This is one of my favorite animated movies. There seems to be little dialogue in the adventure of the boy and a grumpy old man, but it’s funny and such a love story! Rated PG.
13. Mary Poppins
Miss M really adores the magic of Mary Poppins. Who doesn’t want a nanny like her!? Rated G.
