My Thoughts:

If you are looking for a fun and exciting winter movie for your kids then give Snowtime a try. This animated movie is about two groups of kids who embark on journey to have an epic snowball fight. However during the course of everything the children soon learn that friendship and teamwork is much more important than a snowball battle. This movie is not only fun and entertaining but also helps children to learn and understand the importance of teamwork and friendship. All my children ranging from 8-12 found this to be an enjoyable movie. Even my younger nieces and nephews enjoyed this and asked to watch it over and over again.
