Pretty soon the ghosts and goblins and princesses and super heroes will be wandering the streets, knocking on doors looking for candy. Halloween is in the air and with it comes spooky decorations, Halloween parties, haunted houses, hay rides, pumpkin patch visits, corn mazes and all sorts of things that go bump in the night.
But for some kids, it’s all just a little bit too spooky.
So I thought I’d put together something fun for those kids who just aren’t ready for the spooky stuff. This way they can have some fun and you don’t get awaken at night because they are having nightmares.
Halloween Scavenger Hunt Printable
My Halloween Scavenger Hunt Printable is perfect for costume parties, school parties or trick-or-treating! Kids simply identify as many of the costume types as possible from the list. Click the image for a printable PDF.
In addition to scavenger hunt fun, I checked out Netflix to find kid-friendly Halloween movies and shows that my kids might enjoy. My son doesn’t mind the spooky stuff but my daughter likes to keep it a bit less nightmare-invoking.
Netflix has a ton of Halloween movies and shows for kids and adults, below are 12 kid-friendly ones, but a couple may be a bit on the spooky side so you may want to tread lightly. My daughter is fine with The Nightmare Before Christmas now, but 2 years ago it scared her.
Do your kids like the spooky stuff or do they prefer a bit less scary and a lot more fun?Note: I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam ambassador program which inspired this post.
