Educational and Fun Movies to Keep the Whole Family Entertained

Movie night is a great way for you as a family to unwind. It’s also a lovely way to bond and share joy in watching some fun tales. However, certain movies have the added benefit of being educational and offering some important life lessons. Here are some great choices for when you want to watch something entertaining but also have an educative aspect to it.

Wall-E (2008)

While the themes of this film are quite dark, it’s done in a really charming way. The characters of Wall-E and Eve are lovable and heartwarming. This film is exciting and action-packed but also teaches some really important lessons about caring for the planet. 

Ice Age (2002)

This movie follows a wild tale of various animals from the Ice Age era and their adventure with a lost child. While it’s obviously fantastical, it does teach children about these long-forgotten animals and the world they lived in. Having a better understanding of the world’s history like this is useful knowledge to gain.

Inside Out (2015)

The movie was praised for its gentle approach to exploring emotions. For kids watching, it can be really helpful to have these personifications of the emotions they feel to help them better understand themselves. It’s also got a great plot with plenty of action and fun.
