Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

In our house, we love the classic Christmas movies. Shows like Frosty the Snowman, the original Grinch, and of course Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!

While almost every child know Rudolph, so many kids today have never actually seen the classic movie.

Although there are certain things in the movie that are outdated, it has great messages of persevering through your challenges, using your uniqueness as a benefit and forgiving others!

And of course, classic songs like We Are Santa Elves.

When Does Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Air in 2019?

If you’ve never seen Rudolph or you love watching it live each year, be sure you put the air times in your phone so you can watch as a family!

It would be a great family night to make this reindeer headband craft and then watch Rudolph together with some hot chocolate and popcorn.
