The weekend has arrived, and here’s a fitting Advent Activity:

Watch a Christmas Movie

What you’ll need:

 

A brilliant Christmas movie (my recommendations below)

Comfy clothes

OPTIONAL: Snacks

OPTIONAL: Blankets or the Duvet

 

When the weather outside is frightful, don’t bother going out! Make yourself comfy and cosy, and snuggle up with a feelgood movie. Here are the ones I watch every year (in no particular order):

  1. Elf This 2003 movie is silly fun. It’s  PG rated, with a couple of more adult jokes, but I’d say it’s pretty family friendly overall!
  2. Miracle on 34th Street This is a classic! Richard Attenborough plays a wrongly accused Santa who needs to prove that he’s the real thing – and along the way he fulfils the Christmas wishes of a sceptical little girl.

    Polar Express A young boy who has started to doubt Christmas is taken on a magical adventure on the Polar express.

  4. The Snowman What would happen if your snowman came to life? Watch this classic and wonder no more!
  5. Nativity! A primary teacher accidentally tells everyone that he’s getting Hollywood to come to their Nativity play. Follow the madness and mayhem as they prepare for the big show.
  6. Muppet Christmas Carol Last but not least, my very favourite. This is a charming version of the famous story, with the added bonus of all of your favourite Muppet characters and fabulous songs.
