Top 10 Animated Movies You Should Watch With Your kids
The pandemic increased the amount of content consumed by kids drastically. You can use this as an opportunity to bond with them and make sure they are consuming the right content!
As the summer break approaches, the kids get excited to spend time with their friends and finally, take a breather from their studies. This is also an excellent opportunity for parents to connect with their kids and spend quality time with them. It is vital to create a bond with your children during their growing years as it nurtures a healthy relationship between the two. There are various ways of spending quality time with your kid, but one of the most impactful and easiest ways is to watch a movie together. Children learn a lot from the content they consume and a parent needs to make sure their kids are consuming meaningful content. Content that not only entertains them but also teaches them a valuable lesson about life. Animated movies have always been the best source of meaningful content.
Here is a list of ten such animated movies that you can watch with your kid/s in the coming break:
10) How to Train Your Dragon
How to Train Your Dragon is an amazing tale of friendship between a boy and a dragon. The boy lives on an island where men are raised to be hunters to hunt dragons, however, he has a very different approach towards them for which he is mocked. The movie is more than just their friendship, the movie tells us about the journey of a boy trying to prove himself to his father and the other island hunters. You can watch the movie on Netflix.
9) DC League of Super-Pets
If your kid is a fan of superhero films, this is a must-watch. DC comics’ Super-pets is undoubtedly one of their best-animated movies. It is the story of how a pet dog with superpowers creates a team of Super-Pets to rescue his owner (Superman) and the rest of the Justice League. You can watch the movie on Amazon Prime Video.
Up is a movie about 78-year-old Carl Fredrickson who has lost his wife and is on a journey to fulfil his wife’s last wish. However, when he meets a few people on his journey, he learns more about life, friendship, kindness, and joy. You can watch the movie on Disney+.
Ratatouille is the story of an unusual friendship between Linguini, a simple boy who wants to be a chef, and Remmy, a rat who is an expert in cooking and lives the same dream as the boy. This movie covers some important topics like friendship, greed, respect, and love. You can watch the movie on Disney+.
6) Kung Fu Panda 2
An excellent sequel to an exceptional film. Kung Fu Panda is one of the best-animated franchises existing and has created some remarkable characters. Kung Fu Panda 2 talks about some important issues that are relevant to us at any age. It teaches us one of the most important lessons in life, which is to let go of the past. You can watch the movie on Netflix.
5) Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse
Spider-man has always been one of the most loved superheroes of all time. We have always known this superhero by the name of Peter Parker, however, this is the story of Miles Morales. When the spider-man in his universe is killed and he (Miles) gets bitten by the radioactive spider, we see his journey of becoming the new Spider-man. The movie talks about courage, friendship, and family. The movie also even talks about depression, but since it is a kid’s film, it is done in a rather subtle way. You can watch the movie on Netflix.
4) Inside Out
Inside Out has to be one of the most creative children’s movies to ever be written. Though it is a kids’ film, it talks about a very heavy topic, which is human emotions through a girl named Riley and how her life changes when she moves to San Francisco with her parents. You can watch the movie on Disney+.
Brave is a perfect choice for a mother-daughter movie night. It is the tale of a courageous princess who is tired of listening to her mother all the time and wants to be free from all the rules. The story gets interesting and rather funny when Merida has to save her mother from a witch’s curse. You can watch the movie on Disney+.
Coco is an Oscar-winning film that tells us the tale of a young boy named Miguel who wants to pursue music but unfortunately, is born into a family that hates music and has a rule of no music. Miguel is banished to the land of the dead when he does not stop playing the guitar and learns about his family’s past as he meets his ancestors. You can watch the movie on Disney+.
1) Kung Fu Panda
Kung Fu Panda is a perfect example of maintaining a balance between entertaining and teaching when it comes to kids’ movies. Kung Fu Panda is undoubtedly the most hilarious animated movie with an extraordinary lead character Po. The movie teaches us the importance of believing in ourselves, believing in others and most importantly, never giving up. You can watch the movie on Netflix.
Each of the ten movies mentioned above has its unique tale and characters. Movies have always been an important part of our lives movies teach us some of the most important life lessons which we wouldn’t be able to learn in classrooms. I believe it is our duty as parents/adults to make sure our youth is learning these important lessons along with maths, science, and other subjects. Hence, don’t forget to watch these movies with your kid during the holidays and stay tuned for more such content on films.
