Over 100 Best Animated Movies to Share with Your Kids

The current COVID-19 situation has rendered many of us home-bound for the time being. The coronavirus epidemic forces us parents to to be creative in keeping our children amused within the restricted boundaries of our homes. There is only so much art-and-crafts we can do with our kids, or reading with them before our active kids demand for other activities to entertain them. Watching movies is one of the easiest and most available source of entertainment to amuse your young child.

Benefits of Movie-Watching

Animation films are typically 75 mins long. That is over an hour where your toddler, preschooler or even primary school kids are sitting still. This will give you a breather to do something on your own (cook, bathe, check your emails, catch up on the coronavirus updates), while they are being entertained.

Moreover, these animation films are often packed with good wholesome values that you can discuss and start conversations with your kids. For example, princesses are empowered to be problem-solvers and solution seekers, acceptance of differences in appearances or characters are encouraged, and kindness and friendships are advocated as the norm.

These animation films are created to not only transport your children into the magical worlds, but even the adults might be captivated by the magic. You can play them during movie nights, sleepovers, or even matinee afternoons (if your kids are home on stay-home notice (SHN) or Leave-of-absence (LOA) reasons).
