7 Classic movies for children to enjoy this Summer

Summer is a good time to relax and unwind.

I selected a few movies that were classic which I ,myself enjoyed as a child.We enjoy watching these as a family

Tip :how to engage a young child in the classics – we watch only the songs first ,then the following week we watch the movie while we talk and discuss the movie.

The most important tip :Be enthusiastic its infectious.When we enjoy things our children enjoy them as well.

1.The Wizard of Oz.
The classic that never gets old and with good reason.
My preschooler and toddler love this one the best because its full of songs.
An adventure movie that is fast paced.
Little children enjoy this for the upbeat songs and colorful visuals.

2.Mary Poppins
