The kids are very excited for Halloween, their Grandad has purchased their outfits ready and is all set to take the children trick or treating along with his girlfriend as they did last year.
I’m not a huge fan of taking the children out but I do love decorating the house, dressing up, face painting and handing out sweets and treats to those who come to our door. The kids love to dress up, to play party style games and we do even make our food Halloween themed – spider pizza’s, jelly worms and even decorating biscuits to look like spiders and pumpkins.
Another thing I do love it the darker nights and snuggling up watching movies with the kids. Amazon Prime Videos have a lovely selection of videos ready for the kids to watch. A few top picks this season include:
Room on a Broom – this is Harry’s all time favourite film
To the annoyance of her cat, a kindly witch allows a dog, a bird and a frog to ride on her broomstick. Soon, the group have to work together to save the Witch from a fire-breathing dragon who sets her broom on fire and threatens to eat her.
The Addams Family – A movie I used to love as a child but not one I have yet introduced the kids to.
When long-lost Uncle Fester reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez and Morticia plan a celebration to wake the dead. But Wednesday barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester’s uncommonly “normal” behaviour. Could this Fester be a fake, part of an evil scheme to raid the Addams fortune?
Little Ghost – This is next up on our weekend movie nights.
While on location in a spooky Italian villa with his Hollywood big-shot mum and her dorky boyfriend, twelve-year-old Kevin befriends a Renaissance-era girl ghost who helps him cause unrest on the set.
Velma discovers she’s inherited her great-great-uncles’ cursed castle in Transylvania, Pennsylvania. This Scooby-Doo adventure has enough spooky fun to make the whole family come alive!
If you don’t fancy sitting down to watch a movie then there are a few shows which are suitable for kids this Halloween which you may prefer:
- The Haunted Hathaways
- Just Add Magic
- Katie Morag and the Halloween Pirate
- Oddballs Halloween Special
