Halloween Movies and Hot Chocolate
Can you believe that we have 14 days left until Halloween? Where did this month go? It’s already mid-October, and I haven’t started making my kids Halloween costumes. Eeek! Hopefully, I’ll get them started this week and take pictures. In one of my previous posts, I had mentioned that during October we watch 31 days of Halloween movies with our kids (it sounds crazy, I know) but, it’s one of the traditions we like to do as a family to get into the spirit of All Hallows Eve. Plus there’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of Halloween than a family movie night, right?
Since the kids have school, I set up a movie schedule that works best for our daily activities.
Monday through Thursday, we watch a Halloween cartoon episode (which episodes usually last between 20 – 30 minutes). Friday through Sunday we watch a full-length Halloween movie, I figured that it was best to watch full-length movies during the weekend and not have to worry about getting homework done.
Remember to think out of the box when you are trying to look for age-appropriate Halloween movies. I’ve been having a hard time finding movies that are Halloween-ish and age appropriate for my kids. I looked for any cartoons that may have a Halloween special, cooking shows, decorating shows, and of course new movies. I also think about what my kids would like, and I try to focus on the actual “halloween feel” of the show/movie. If the show or movie isn’t Halloween-ish, it doesn’t make it on the list. I hope this helps if you are looking for Halloween movies that the whole family enjoys.
By the way, Netflix just came out with a new Halloween baking show called “The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell,” and I think it’s brilliant!
Don’t forget to cozy up, turn the lights off and maybe even have some hot chocolate with spooky marshmallows! You can see how I made them HERE.
Here’s our Halloween Movie List! You can find these on Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, and Amazon. Remember my kids’ ages range from 5 – 11 years old.
