Fun Valentine’s Day Movies for Kids
- Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (1975) – Charlie Brown fans will love this Valentine special that premeired back in 1975! The story is sweet and simple and it remains a classic to this day.
- Gnomeo & Juliet (2011) – This witty, computer animated version of Shakespeare’s tale is a must-see. Romeo and Juliet are garden gnomes who find themselves separated by a long-lasting family feud. The star studded cast features to voiceover work of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Romeo & Juliet.
- Beauty & the Beast (1991 or 2017 version) – With two fantastic versions to choose from, this film is one you’ll want to include in your list of Valentine’s Day movies for kids. Little ones will enjoy the music and animation of the original 1991 version, while older children and adults will be enthralled by Disney’s 2017 live-action remake.
- Lady and the Tramp (1955) – Originally released in 1955, this animated favorite is sure to make your little ones smile. Tramp is the rugged street dog while Lady is a pampered, indoor pup. Join them as they go on all sorts of adventures and enjoy a romantic spaghetti dinner together.
- Enchanted (2007) – Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey star in this charming musical about love, magic, and hope. The songs are super catchy and it will bring back the nostalgia of other classic Disney princess films.
- Tangled (2010) – Join Rapunzel on her journey to find out about herself (and a bit of love along the way!). As a Pixar/Disney film, it has a similar feel to Frozen, and features songs that are sure to get your kiddos tapping their toes.
- The Parent Trap (1961 or 1998 version) – Once again, this film has not one, but two separate versions for your family to choose from (or have fun watching them back to back!). Both movies tell the story of twin daughters working to get their divorced parents back together. It’s so fun to see the hijinks they get into along the way!
- If You Give a Mouse a Valentine’s Day Cookie (2020) – Everyone loves the children’s book, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” but did you know there’s a Valentine’s Day TV special? So fun, right? Younger kids especially will enjoy this cheeky story.
If you and your kiddos would like to come up with your own list of Valentine’s Day movies for kids, we’ve included a printable checklist for you.
Try sitting down and coming up with some ideas to put on the list. Then display your list somewhere the family can see it!
Don’t forget the fun Movie Treats!
Make your family Valentine’s movie night an extra success by printing out the included treat boxes. All you need to do is print, cut, fold along the flaps and join it all together with some tape or glue.
We love the idea of filling them with popcorn and candy such as conversation hearts or chocolates but pick whatever you think your kids will love.
