Keeping kids entertained for a road trip is not always easy. But there are some easy ways to keep them engaged for long stretches of time. One of those ways is watching a movie. A typical kids move will run for 2 hours or less which is a good amount of time in particular in between stops (think tank fill ups) or right before they fall asleep if road tripping through night fall. But what movies do you show?


Annie is always a fun movie because it involves a simple enough plot kids can follow. Plus there is lots of singing kids can join in on. This is a fun movie that is not animated and because there are a few versions of Annie, you can pick one that will work for your kids. 

The Sound of Music 

A fun classic that kids can sing along to. Anything that allows kids to let out a little energy in the form of their voices is a good thing. Don't worry, there is enough to the plot for good stretches of quiet watching to. 

Movies With Favorite Characters from Shows 

If your child has a few favorite shows they watch, search for movies featuring those characters. These movies are often not shown at theaters but they do exist and your kids will be happy when their favorite character friends don't disappear after 15-20 minutes. There are even dvd's that feature several episodes of shows so if you can find a movie, consider this alternative.

Kids love animals from animated to real so you can go wrong with a cute movie starring a dog, an animated animal like an Ogre, cute tap dancing birds,  or even some other furry made up friend. 

Any popular kids movie will work well especially if it is one they love but have not seen for awhile. Stash a few of their favorites away in advance so they will be excited when you load it to play while driving. What's your favorite movies for kids to watch during a road trip?
