On Thanksgiving after eating tons of food parents may enjoy going out to the movies or the mall with the kids, but a few movies might be just the trick for a quiet afternoon for the kids to be entertained.
There’s the classic The Mouse on the Mayflower, which tells the story of a mouse’s journey to the New World.
And Jim Henson’s Turkey Hollow, tells the story of two children who befriend mysterious monsters when visiting the town of Turkey Hollow.
There’s also Garfield’s Thanksgiving, when the beloved cat is supposed to be on a diet..
And the other classic, Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving, which in many households is a family tradition.
It’s been one of the best Thanksgiving movies for more than a generation. Thanks to a last-minute invite from Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown and his friends attempt to throw together a Thanksgiving dinner.
Then of course there is Free Birds— where two rival turkeys try to get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu forever.
And Winnie the Pooh’s Thanksgiving is a favorite. Thanksgiving in the Hundred Acre Wood is especially special.
If families can’t make it to New England this year, next year might be a good time to go to the Living History Museum at Plymouth Plantation. In the meantime, watching the virtual tour is the next best thing.
