Help Out Your Elf on the Shelf with Christmas Movies from Netflix

Help Out Your Elf on the Shelf with Christmas Movies from Netflix

We love the magic that our Elf on the Shelf brings to our family but sometimes we are at a loss of how he should tell us to celebrate the Christmas season. (You see, our elf gives us something to do to celebrate Christmas everyday). One of our favorite Elf on the Shelf activities is to watch a Christmas movie as a family.

It works well because of a few reason:

  • It’s easy. Turn on Netflix and DONE.
  • Evan loves popcorn so anytime we can have a family movie night with popcorn is a HUGE win in his books.
  • There are many, many Christmas movies so this activity can reappear for multiple days in the Elf on the Shelf season.

So pop a big bowl of popcorn, make the hot cocoa and sit down to enjoy some of these family-friendly holiday classics available on Netflix.

My kids are netflix nuts too. I also have the same popcorn lovers here so any movie night is a hit here. Love your elf. It's a cute one - not so creepy.

My kids are obsessed with Netflix. I love that there are so many great Holiday movies and shows on right now too. Perfect for the winter break when the kids are home for 2 weeks. Cuddling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn sounds perfect :)
