12 Days of Christmas 2018 – Advent For Toddlers

Following on from my 25 Days Of Christmas Advent For Families, I also wanted to make a list of Christmas films that are more suitable for toddlers. My boy is 22 months old and is starting to get an idea of what Christmas is about, so I’m planning on watching a Christmas film with him every day so that I can teach him more about Santa and the festive season.

Sadly, if you’re avoiding TV specials of Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol because you watch enough of them already, there really aren’t that many films out there that are made especially for younger audiences. So here’s a short list of what’s available on TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sky Cinema and NowTV over the following month (December 2018), showcasing the best Christmas films for toddlers for those who are looking for simpler animations to teach your little ones about the magic of Christmas.

25 Days of Christmas 2018 – Advent For Families

Now that it’s December, we’re finally allowed to start watching some Christmas films! Hooray! So to help you decide what festive classic to stick on over the next 25 days, here’s my guide of what films are on TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sky Cinema and NowTV, over the different streaming services this month (December 2018).

I’ve tried to keep this guide family friendly, but there just aren’t enough decent Christmas films out there (let alone being aired on TV or available to stream online), so I have also made a separate guide for toddlers and younger families as some of the films below have some adult comedy. But here’s the best of the bunch, from children’s animations to family comedies and a few Christmas classics, all aimed to get you in the festive mood with your loved ones.

Book v Film: A Simple Favor

“Some men lash out and leave marks, the black eyes and broken noses that send women to the emergency rooms and from there to the kindly social worker and the battered women’s shelter. But the real devils are the ones who hide the traces, who practice constant psychological abuse until the woman is all but destroyed.”

Directed by Paul Feig and based on Darcey Bell‘s 2017 book of the same name, A Simple Favor follows widow and stay-at-home Mommy blogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), who is asked a seemingly simple favour by her best friend, Emily (Blake Lively). Emily asks her to pick up her son after school one day, but when Emily never shows up to collect her son from Stephanie’s house, Stephanie knows that something is terribly wrong – Emily would never leave Nicky, no matter what the police say. Terrified, Emily reaches out to Emily’s husband, Sean (Henry Golding), offering emotional support. It’s the least she can do for her best friend. But then, she and Sean receive shocking news: Emily is dead. As Stephanie seeks to uncover the truth, she must dig deeper into Emily’s secret past. Things aren’t as simple as she once thought.
