Halloween is on it’s way but who says it has to be all scary? Kids love to get dressed up and go trick or treating at school and on Halloween night. It’s fun to make Halloween themed food as well. Why not have a family movie night either the weekend before or one or two nights before the big night? It can be hard to find family friendly Halloween themed movies because everything is so gruesome and realistic these days. No worries, I’ve got you covered. Here is a list of family friendly movies for Halloween. I even threw in a few old TV cartoon episodes for when you are short on time. So gather ’round with the spider pizza and the witches brew to be scared silly for a change.
