34 Best Easter Movies for Kids

the best Easter movies for kids

Although Easter usually comes in at number five on the list of American’s favorite holidays, it’s always been one of my favorites because it was a special holiday that I spent with my grandparents.

In addition to hunting for eggs that my grandfather would dutifully hide and rehide for me dozens of times, we watched movies together. 

This list of Easter movies contains some of my all-time favorites from those weekends with my grandparents. There are a few of my kids’ favorites on this list, as well.
