May 12, 2020

With parents & kids alike stuck indoors, families are spending lots more together, which suggests sharing escapist pastime to quell the quarantined boredom of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Usually, the advice would be to keep kids engrossed in other activities while limiting their screen time over the course of a day – but then, quarantining to stamp out Covid-19 isn’t exactly the usual. So here we go! We have combed through the major streaming libraries curating 8 best Covid movies to the marathon with your kids while in lockdown:

1. Bee Movie (2007) – covid movie for kids

Plot: When Barry the bee discovers that the honey harvested from captive bees held in smoky, shoddy fake hives is sold in supermarkets, he sues the human race. 


If the bees stop manufacturing honey & aren’t pollinating means that flowers& plants won’t continue to blossom & grow. If you don’t focus on what you do best then who will do your part in the world?

2. Charlie and the chocolate factory (2005)

Plot: Charlie, a poor kid wins a golden ticket to a trip to the Wonka Factory. Charlie receives riches beyond his wildest dreams. 


Smile and let stupid people engineer their own demise. It beautifully teaches how failures come to people due to their lack of manners.

3. A Dog’s Purpose (2017) – Covid movie for Kids

Covid Movie Plot: The movie follows the stories of one devoted dog and its masters throughout the years as its mind is reincarnated into a new body every time it passes. 


A heart-warming, humorous movie is a bit of an emotional roller coaster, but the ride will be worth it. It teaches about unconditional love, & the importance to greet every new adventure – & person – with excitement.

4. Baby’s day out (1994) – Covid Movie for Kids

 Plot: A great one to watch with the little ones. A mischievous baby who lives in a huge mansion in a suburb of Chicago with his parents is kidnapped by 3 men. After the abduction they have difficulty controlling him. 


Crime doesn’t pay and babies are a bundle of joy

5. Forrest Gump (1994)

The story revolves around revealing Forest’s talents eventually allowing him to receive a football scholarship & a ticket into the U.S. Army. 


The award winning movie teaches every kid to have faith in where life takes you. It doesn’t matter how others see you, but rather, how you see yourself.

6. Pearl Harbor (2001) – covid movie for kids

Do your kid a favor & make him watch this masterpiece. Towards the end of the movie, it teaches Chris Gardner (Will Smith) a lesson that there is an ‘I’ in happIness &in ‘PURSUIT OF HAPPyNESS’ there is no ‘Y’ in happYness.
