A list of Easter movies for your kids
Message through the movies
Movies with an Easter theme or storyline can teach kids the significance or message of Easter, that the darkest hour brings with it the greatest hope.
While Easter does convey the above message of hope, it is also a time for holidays, a time to simply sit back, relax, and enjoy a time devoid of deadlines. It is a time when the entire family gathers around to celebrate the spirit of Easter, and catch up with the things that are otherwise forgotten in our hectic schedule. The only downside for kids being, enjoying the holidays takes precedence over understanding the meaning behind it.

To put it simply, the essence of Easter is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. But, of course, this story has morals and lessons behind it. However, to impart all of this to kids in a formal way can be boring and uninteresting. Instead, approaching this subject in a rather unique way can result in a huge pay off. This is where movies can be an engaging medium which excites and educates young ones. There are a score of movies that will help you educate your child about Easter, while providing guaranteed entertainment too. The other plus point of watching movies is, the audio-visual impact it makes is always better remembered in comparison to reading a book or listening to a talk. So, without further ado, here's a list of good Easter movies that your kids will love and enjoy this holiday.
