25 of the best Christmas films to watch with kids!

Christmas films are a magical part of a cosy Christmas for us, we love them! After my popular kids' Halloween movie round-up last year, I thought it was time I created a list of our favourite festive films to enjoy with the children and why not make it a full advent of movies to last all December until the big day?!

Here are 25 Christmas movies to get you feeling festive this winter...


Klaus is a new favourite in our house, we've watched it the past two Christmases and love the story and characters plus the heart-warming ending - love!

Frozen 1 & 2

A winter classic, Frozen and Frozen 2 are ever popular in our house, as I'm sure is the same with many families! Who doesn't love the adventures of Anna & Elsa?

Home Alone 1 & 2

Absolute comedy classics - this is the first Christmas film my kids ask for each year, they love the slapstick and even though I know everything that's coming SO well after years of loving these films, I still can't get enough of them!

Christmas Chronicles 1 & 2

Another new classic one for us, we have loved Christmas Chronicles since it came out on Netflix a couple of years ago and the 2nd one is fun too.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas & The Grinch

The Jim Carrey version is my favourite but we do like the newer cartoon version of the awesome Dr Seuss tale too.


Another funny one which the twins like more now they are older.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

My absolute favourite version of A Christmas Carol. Kermit & friends are fab as ever with Michael Caine brilliantly cast as Scrooge. The songs are fantastic!


A must see every year, silly fun which the kids (and I) adore!

Arthur Christmas

Sweet and funny, this has some brilliant moments.

Polar Express

Admittedly I haven't seen this one for years, it's not on any of our streaming subscriptions and I haven't dug out the DVD for the twins yet but I seem to remember it's got a nice story and anything with Tom Hanks has to be good, right?

Jingle Jangle

I love the colour and cinematography in this one! Takes a while to get going after the sad part but I do enjoy it.

Jingle All The Way

Cheesy 90's fun! Predictable but enjoyable.
