The sofa, blanket and film also works for children, especially on winter afternoons. And at Christmas, with the school holidays, we find ourselves in the ideal time to spend unforgettable afternoons with our children. But we are going to choose the films well, that the cinema is entertainment and leisure and, at the same time, we can take advantage of it to reinforce education. Here is our list of the best movies with values to see at Christmas with children.
Solidarity, camaraderie, generosity, empathy or teamwork are some of the values that frequently appear in movies to watch as a family. What better time than Christmas to promote values! And through the cinema it is also possible to reach other aspects of the integral development of the child, such as stimulating their curiosity with adventure or mystery films, highlighting the importance of illusions and learning to manage emotions.
And all this without forgetting the most important thing: the child's smile, having fun, having fun and playing! What movies are we going to see this Christmas?
The protagonist is a boy, Miguel, who wants to follow in the artistic footsteps of his musical idol. It is one of the most emotional films for children capable of moving even the coldest adults. It is ideal to remember our loved ones and to encourage our children to continue fighting for their dreams.
If we want to move, of course this movie is the best. Only the image of the house flying thanks to a million colored balloons is capable of sticking you to the sofa and not moving until it is finished. Values such as love, companionship or friendship are united with a very positive life perspective.
- Billy Elliot
An 11-year-old boy is already very clear that he wants to be a professional dancer. And throughout the entire film it is seen how with effort, perseverance and perseverance any dream can come true and any obstacle can be overcome.
In the not as distant future as we would like, humans flee from the planet that they themselves have destroyed. Among the waste is a robot, the protagonist of the film, who wastes generosity and dedication. It is an ideal film for our children to have more environmental awareness.
- Gru, my favorite villain
We have several days with this first film from which they have then created a fabulous saga and a lot of games. The Minions not only make us laugh, they also give us a few lessons in the benefits of teamwork and effort, which are by no means incompatible with fun.

When educating our children in values, it would not be bad for us to preach by example. Christmas is a difficult time for conciliation and it so happens that all families have the same problem. Why don't we practice a little solidarity and teamwork that we encourage so much in our children to spend an unforgettable afternoon?
Our proposal is not to spend the afternoon with the family, but for the children to meet each afternoon in a house. We can meet other families from the neighborhood or school and organize our agendas. So children can continue to see their friends even on those winter afternoons when the weather doesn't let them go to the park. And so our children also have a greater feeling of being on vacation.
With a little effort on the part of adults, a little more organization and a pinch of enthusiasm, we can make the Christmas holidays unforgettable for our children this year and practically without leaving home. A few games after the movie or having everyone together make some cookies for snack is enough to reinforce the bond of friendship during the holidays.
Some of those afternoons, and depending on the desire of the adult who is with them, they can also be used to make crafts, add Christmas decorations to the tree, have a hot chocolate while they comment on the movie, try a scientific experiment and, for what not, do the homework that they have pending. It is not the same to do them each at home than in the company of friends.
And we? We calm down, because we know that the afternoon that they are not at our house they will be enjoying, having fun and learning with their friends in a safe environment.
