Best Movies for Kids to Watch Thanksgiving Day
For adults, Thanksgiving Day we spend cooking in the kitchen, preparing our home for all of our family, and of course most watch the Thanksgiving Day parade. Although we love doing some of these things, our kids seem to get a bit crazy trying to find something to do while everyone else is busy. Some things you can do are watch a Thanksgiving Day movie with the kids, and here are some great ones the whole family will love.
A Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving
A Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving is a 1973 prime time animated television special that features the voices of Todd Barbee, Robin Kohn, Stephen Shea, Hilary Momberger, Christopher DeFaria and Bill Melendez. What can I say, this is a classic. Growing up we would normally watch this movie, or at least us kids would while the parents were cooking. This movie is probably number one in most homes, and will surely get each of us in that Thanksgiving mood.
Miracle on 34th Street
Miracle on 34th Street is a 1947 Christmas film that stars Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwenn, Porter Hall and Gene Lockhart. Okay, okay, I know this is sometimes more for the Christmas season. I know it has the whole Santa situation in it but this movie is one of the favorites for this time of year. It also happens to open up the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and is sure to get us all in the mood for the holiday season.
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Alvin’s Thanksgiving Celebration
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Alvin’s Thanksgiving Celebration is a 2008 animated film that features the voices of Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler and Jesse McCartney. Now, this is a great movie to watch especially if you have smaller children but this movie is also great for even us adults to watch. Let’s face it, we might be an adult but we all love the chipmunk movies. This movie will set the tone to be grateful for what you have and what you may get, and might just teach us all a nice little lesson this year.
