Hearts and chocolate may get all the attention on Valentine’s Day, but there’s something to be said about cozying up on the couch with a thematic movie (especially if you’re a kid, and therefore, a candlelit dinner is about as appealing as a root canal). Whether you’re a parent looking to host your kiddo’s gang of friends for a movie night or a caregiver in need of something to do on snowy days, these Valentine’s Day movies for kids deliver — and they’re available to stream on a variety of platforms.
From cutesy cartoons for toddlers to flicks with a hint of angst for older kids, there’s a Valentine’s Day movie here for everyone. (Yep, even you.) And keep in mind, subscriptions and rental fees vary.
