With school holidays coming up, I’m looking forward to taking the kids to see a movie (or two!!)
My children are still at the age that they wont sit still through a whole movie unless its exciting… or a cartoon!!
So here are my Top Movies for Children to see this School Holidays!
1. Santa Apprentice
Starring Australia’s very own Delta Goodrem and Georgie Parker, Santa’s Apprentice follows the story of a young Australian boy named Nicholas, who is in line as the next Santa Claus!
This looks like a movie that I could get my kids (minus Master H!) to sit in a cinema for 1hour 17 minutes without them getting too restless or bored!
This is going to be one of our Advent Calendar activities!
2. Arthur Christmas
From the makers of Wallace and Gromit and Flushed Away, the story follows Arthur… the son of Santa Claus and Mrs Claus and brother of Steve. As a tight family unit they run the high tech, with military style precision North Pole which enables Santa to be able to deliver presents to all the children of the world in one night.
Considering my children loved Flushed Away, I’m curious to see if they would enjoy this as well. With it more realistic cartoons and running for an hour and 37 minutes, I’m sure it portays Santa in a funny new light!
3. Alvin and The Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked
The hugely loveable and cheeky Alvin, Simon and Theodore along with the Chipettes are back again in this sequel, after enjoying a lovely Cruise with Dave, they wind up shipwrecked on a desert island they get up to their usual antics while singing and dancing their way through everything!
I know all four of my eldest kids would love to see this, they are huge Alvin and the Chipmunk fans, all fighting over who gets to be Alvin when they are watching it! With a running time of 1 hour 30minutes, I’m sure the singing, dancing and the crazy things they do, will ensure my children wont get bored!!
4. Puss In Boots
A branch off of the hugely successful Shrek trilogy, finds Puss as the main character in the next instalment. As Puss teams up with the mastermind character of Humpty Dumpty and Kitty to steal the Goose that lays the Golden Egg!
I know that my boys would definitely love to see this at the movies, my girls however I’m not so sure of, they normally wont sit through the whole movie of Shrek were my boys will, so this might be a movie that Daddy will take the boys to for a Boys Afternoon Hang Out (cant say date…they are boys!!) With a running time of an hour 40 minutes, it will be a movie that will be over before you know it!
5. Happy Feet 2
Who could forget the hugely successful movie of 2006, Happy Feet! Well the sequel is finally here and with voices by Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Pink! and Magda Szubanski, its bound to be as hilariously funny as the first!
With a running time of 1 hour 50 minutes, its one that might seem a little young for the younger ones, but a movie that the older kids would definitely enjoy!
Next time I’ll share with you the Top 5 Movies for Adults to see these School Holidays!
