My Favourite Christmas Films For The Whole Family

One of my absolute favourite things about the Christmas period is festive films. I have personal favourites that are classics but I also love watching the super cheesy made for TV films as well. This year is the first year that Erin might actually be interested in some Christmas films so I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christmas films for all the family. Miracle On 34th Street For me, Miracle On 34th Street is such a classic now and I can’t believe it is 24 years old now. Richard Attenborough plays Kris Kringle and a Santa in a department

Fun Halloween Films For Children Under 5

Halloween is just a few weeks away now and it’s really one of the first years that Erin has asked a bit more about it. In previous years Erin hasn’t been bothered at all and she also really didn’t like to watch films. This year though Erin has really found a love for cuddling up on the couch with a film so we want to introduce to some that are Halloween themed. As she is still only 3 (closer to 4) we have been looking for family friendly films that won’t be too scary for her. Room on the Broom

Film Ideas For Children That Don’t Like Animation

For the longest time I have been trying to get Erin interested in watching films. I would love to be able to sit on the couch with her on a rainy day, with our duvet, and cuddle up to watch something fun. Unfortunately, it really hasn’t gone in my favour. Erin has always quite liked cartoons and is happy to sit and watch random videos on YouTube for a while but a film she just will not bother with. We have tried all sorts and up until recently, the most we could get out of her was 40 minutes of

However, Sky recently started showing it from the start so I’ve been recording it every day. I very
