5 Halloween Movies & Books (For The Whole Family)

Hey Guys!

Today i’m sharing 5 Halloween movies, and 5 Halloween books your family will be sure to love.

Let’s start with movies first…

  1. Hocus Pocus – A classic Halloween movie! I don’t care for some of the language, but overall i love this movie!
  2. Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie – Another classic! All of my kids have loved this movie, and so do i!
  3. The Haunted Mansion – Not really a Halloween movie, but i feel like it works for Halloween. My whole family enjoys this movie.
  4. Room on the Broom – Such a cute movie (and book!), perfect for Halloween.
  5. Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest – If you love Curious George this Halloween movie will be perfect for you!

Now onto books…

  1. Room on the Broom – Yes this story has made both of my lists, it’s that good!
  2. The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat – I grew up reading ‘The Berenstain Bears’, so this book just brings back childhood memories.
  3. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat – I’ve previously mentioned we love all the ‘There Was An Old Lady’ books, so it’s no surprise this book has made my list.
  4. Ten Timid Ghosts – Such a cute story, if you haven’t read it yet i highly recommend it!
  5. Click, Clack, Boo! – All the ‘click, clack,…” books are so fun!

There are my lists, hope you enjoyed them. What’s your favorite Halloween movie & book?

Halloween Plans 2020

Hey Guys!

This year, because of Covid-19, we are doing things differently for Halloween. I thought today i’d share our plans.

For Halloween, we usually go trick-or-treating, but this year for the safety of everyone we have felt it best to come up with other plans.

We are going to turn our whole property into a little “neighborhood” where they can make stops at different places (our house, our school house, our rv, etc.) and trick-or-treat.

This year(back in the Spring) we created our own little forest, on part of our property and so we are going to turn that forest into like a little haunted world, but you know way less creepy.

If it all turns out well, it should be a lot of fun!

This Friday, i plan on sharing all that we have bought (a Halloween Haul) for this little project of ours, so stay tuned for that if you are at all interested.

I also plan on sharing a tour of all that we create, “our Halloween neighborhood”, but that post probably won’t be up until the day before Halloween or on Halloween.

What are you doing for Halloween? Anything different, or trick-or-treating as usual?

This year all my kids are actually going with a theme. This hasn’t happened since my oldest 2 were very little, and I was able to dress them up how I wanted.

Themed Learning {Halloween}

A few years ago I shared about doing a themed learning unit, Winter. I remember how much fun that was for the kids, so I decided to bring back themed learning units. Yay!

Of course with Halloween being only 1 day away, what better theme to start with…

Halloween Themed Learning

 

We started our Halloween themed learning unit last week, and here is everything we did.

We carve pumpkins every year. It has been a tradition of ours for about 12 years now.

#3 – Candy corn, corn on the cobs

We first tried our hand at this a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun so we decided to try it again. You can find really cool ones on Pinterest.

Food we ate:

Pumpkin shaped sandwiches – We made peanut butter and jelly, but you could do any kind of sandwich. You just need a cookie cutter. I paired the sandwiches with oranges, Jello (orange), Carrots with ranch, goldfish, Halloween Oreo, and a homemade pumpkin looking pretzel.

Mummy hot dogs – So cute, fun, and easy to make! You only need hot dogs and crescent rolls to make these mummy hot dogs. Recipe can be found HERE.

Roasted Pumpkin seeds – Use the seeds from the pumpkin carving, roast them in the oven (350 degrees F) for about 20 minutes.

 

Movies we watched:

 

That’s it for our Halloween themed learning week! I hope you enjoyed it!
