Whether you are looking for a fun way to spend time together or a way to keep the kids busy this summer, here are 13 Disney movies to watch and a link to the crafts to go along with them!
One of our favorite things to do as a family is to sit together and watch a movie.
Sometimes though, I need to keep the kids busy doing something while I make phone calls, write blog posts, or do something else around the house. That’s when I turn on the movie and pull out the craft supplies.
I love having coordinating craft projects for the movies we’re watching. You can find a great list of Disney movie crafts here!
Where to Find Disney Movies to Watch
While you might be able to find some Disney movies play on Disney Channel and Freeform, if you don’t have the DVD, our favorite streaming service for all things Disney is Disney+.
Whether I want to introduce my kids to old Disney Channel Series like The Suite Life with Zack and Cody, to rewatch their favorite shows from Disney Junior, or to watch a National Geographic documentary during our homeschool time, I can find it all on Disney+.
