50 Creative and Inspiring Movies To Watch During Social Distancing

We know we have been giving the crafting pep talk a lot since we all started social distancing, even more than we usually do! We understand that you can’t fill every hour of the day with crafts (the way we do sometimes) and you might need a break from homeschooling! Our team has gathered a list of our favorite colorful and creative movies to help you out during quarantine. These movies are sure to leave you inspired, and even refreshed enough you will be itching to create again!

Even if you are still going strong on the #quarantinecreativity projects you have started, these movies are perfect to play while you create! Some of them may be classics you remember fondly from growing up, and it’s time to introduce your family to these films! Welcome your kids into the golden world of Audrey Hepburn, Shirley Temple, and Hayley Mills.

Make your screen time restful AND motivating!

All of these movies we love have been linked for you to rent to watch on Amazon! If you scroll down you will also find our favorite movies on Netflix right now.

Movies with amazing colors

Of course we are obsessed with any movie with an unexpected color scheme. The new rendition of Emma was released early for streaming on Amazon since movie theaters are now closed. We live the Gywneth Paltrow version, but this new movie is packed full of color and humor. The shade of yellow above is a prominent color throughout the film and matches Emma’s personality perfectly. We are talking too much, just go! Watch it!

The color in films can be an important part of the story line and experience. Teach your kids to pay attention to how colors change throughout the movie and how it affects their emotions. A great movie to watch as an example of this is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (an all time favorite for some of our team members!) It is subtle, and you may have already watched this one multiple times without noticing, but this time pay attention to how the tones in the film gradually change from blue to red as Ben Stiller’s character progresses.

Here is our full list of movies with stunning colors:

Fantastic Mr Fox
The Help
La La Land
The Farewell

Classic movies everyone should see

We recently watched the Imagineering Story on Disney+ and it was so interesting to learn more about the original animators of classic Disney movies. Mary Blair was the creator of concept art for Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and more. Her use of bold hues and surprising color combos became the basis of Disney animation style, and lead her to design one of Disney’s most iconic rides – It’s A Small World. Learning about Mary made watching classic Disney movies an entirely new experience! Learning about the artists behind movies makes the watching experience even better, plus then you can call it homeschooling! 😉

Here is some of Mary Blair’s amazing art!

  1. Under classics, Singin’ in the Rain is my all time favorite film. Though you’ve mentioned so many of my go tos. The Grand Budapest Hotel has exquisite production design (as does most of Wes Anderson’s world). Can’t wait to dive into some of your recommendations, and watch others again. xo

    If youre booking a room in late spring or early summer in hopes that travel restrictions will be lifted, pay attention to the fine print and book closer to your travel date. The movies screened have been made exclusively for the experience, in collaboration with porn star Kim Holland. The cinema is located in Amsterdam’s medieval centre. Mario Salerno, who has 18 apartment buildings, said he did not want renters to stress about their payment during the coronavirus pandemic. Sonia Calvi, 66, and Edgar Daza, 60, were discovered with multiple stab wounds at their home in Stockwell, south London on April 1. Kean’s arrival from Juventus attracted much excitement last summer but just one goal and vivelle-dot two assists in 26 games has seen him cut a frustrated figure so far and Roma could offer him a way out. Congresss emergency coronavirus bill would provide colleges and universities with about $14 billion to weather shutdowns and move to distance learning. That is unlikely to be enough. New Delhi delivery driver Devender Singh is defying his – and his wife’s – fears of catching coronavirus and of being beaten by police. By continuing to work in a lockdown, he’s becoming an unlikely hero for both the population and e-commerce. The coronavirus pandemic pushed the European Championship to 2021. For companies with warehouses full of Euro 2020 vivelle-dot merchandise, it may be better to pretend nothing has changed.

  3. The original That Darn Cat! If you like the original Parent Trap you’ll love it! Also the original Swiss Family Robinson! 😂

  4. Paddington and Paddington 2 are both incredibly beautiful aesthetics-wise, but they also make you want to be a better person! They’re classics in our house (and we don’t have kids yet).

    I love this list! Three movies I love especially for there color and imagery are Paddington, Nannie McPhee and Penelope. They are so creative, full of color, design and fun!
