Inside:Holiday movies for teens and tweens
When our kids are little, one of the best parts of the holidays is making hot cocoa, snuggling up on the coach and watching all the holiday specials we loved as kids. There is Rudolph and Frosty and of course we can’t forget Charlie Brown.
But as our kids get older, they can go through a stage of feeling like they’re “too old” for these nostalgic favorites. Or they may just be tired of watching the same old shows and movies.
That doesn’t mean that this tradition can’t go on. It simply means it’s time to move on to movies that are a bit more mature. Many of these holiday movies for teens and tweens are classics that the whole family can enjoy, while some may be new for everyone.
Either way, teens and tweens still love hot cocoa, so don’t skimp on the marshmallows. And although your big kids may have outgrown your lap, they are never too big for a little snuggle on the couch as long as their friends aren’t over watching with you.
