24 Fun Movies to Watch with the Kids this Christmas

11/30/2014 Laura Watkins 3 Comments

In no particular order, here are 24 fun movies to enjoy with the kids this Christmas.


The Big 6
We never let a holiday season pass without watching these six classic cartoons!


A Charlie Brown Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Frosty the Snowman
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Mickey's Christmas Carol
A Garfield Christmas

White Christmas

Holiday Inn
White Christmas is a tradition for most of us, but have you need its AMAZING predecessor Holiday Inn?? One of my all-time favorites. I was originally saving these for my "Must Watch Movies This Christmas" list, but your cries of outrage have not gone unheard. And you're right, they've gotta be on this list too!

Eloise at Christmastime
A cute adaptation of the classic Eloise books, co-starring Julie Andrews as Nanny

Home Alone
My husband would never forgive me if I didn't include this one. With its cartoonishly extreme violence, I loved it as a kid but cringe as an adult. My kids actually haven't seen this one yet, I was waiting until they were older.


Elf
This one goes without saying. If, for any reason, you have not seen this one yet, drop everything and go buy it.

The Polar Express
Despite the animation, this a fun rendition of the classic children's book.

Miracle on 34th Street
A classic MUST-SEE for every family! Some of my first holiday memories involve this movie :)

The Santa Clause

Babes in Toyland (1961)
Full of comedy, action, and romance, your whole family will enjoy this Disney classic.

Little Lord Fauntleroy
A heartwarming story of the reuniting of a broken family, starring Sir Alec Guinness. If your kids don't seem interested, just tell them Obi-wan is in it ;)

The Nutcracker (1993)
If you can't make it to a live performance this year, this is a decent substitute. 

The Princess Bride
Any excuse to watch The Princess Bride! And it actually takes place during Christmas so :p

Babe
A cute/fun story of self-discovery starring talking animals? 
Irresistible! (Unless you've been forced to watch it repeatedly, then it gets old fast.)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
We like to watch this one any time of year, but part of it does take place during Christmas!

Lady and the Tramp
Always a cute classic to watch, but the movie actually begins AND ends on Christmas. 

Rise of the Guardians
Not my favorite ever, but my kids insisted that it make the list. 
Jack Frost and Elsa were meant for each other, just sayin'.

Beauty and the Beast
Dating tip: A massive library packed with books is the best gift ever!

Anastasia
Once again, any excuse to watch is a good.

Giveaway Day 8: Handmade Doctor Who Pottery from mckeepottery!

11/28/2014 Laura Watkins 0 Comments



Win handmade Doctor Who Pottery from mckeepottery!

Measures 4" square and is glazed white with a blue T.A.R.D.I.S. wibbly wobbly landing and a red dalek ready to exterminate! Great as a spoon rest, soap dish, trinket dish, jewelry dish, candle dish, or home decor on a table counter or hanging in a plate display on the wall. Microwave, oven, dishwasher, and food safe.

I have a home studio and make everything by hand on the wheel or from slabs. I glaze and fire my own pieces to cone 6 in an electric kiln. All the pieces are food safe and work in the oven, microwave, frige, and freezer except where noted. My pieces are based on nature and often contain images of leaves, fruit, trees, and flowers. I use leaves and flowers found in my yard to trace for some of the projects. Others are found at a local park or on line. It's too bad I can't grow everything I'd like to use in my pottery. Banana's just don't do well with Pennsylvania winters so I have to trace those leaves from images found online. - Barbara
