Movies For All Seasons

Movies For All Seasons March 6, 2023

With ten kids, we’ve seen our share of kid-friendly movies. Once-a-week movie night can become a challenge with mixed ages, so here’s my list of 52 movies to meet your seasonal needs and hit that sweet spot that lets the older and the younger eat popcorn and enjoy in peace.  Why?  Because everyone loves lists and I got to hear the do-de-do-do-do-do-dah-do-dah, the sound of joy before the movie starts!

1) Superman (the Christopher Reeve Version)
2) Over the Moon
3) The Last Unicorn
4)  Fiddler on the Roof
5)  The Peanuts Movie

This is my obligatory picture since I haven’t figured out all the bugs of posting photos and apparently I must have a featured photo to post.  I am a writer and blogger of words and this is the best I could do after an hour of frustration.
