5 Family Movies To Enjoy Even After Halloween
i heart arts and crafts

Halloween is a fun, festive holiday that children and adults love. There is a wonderful bonding experience in taking children trick-or-treating whether they are your own children or not. Another great way to bond with children on Halloween or near Halloween, is to watch family Halloween movies. Some people may say that watching movies is not a great way to bond with anyone, but I have to disagree. Some of the best memories I have with my father is when we are watching movies or discussions we have about movies we have seen. (For example: Taste the soup!) The point of bonding is to share a common like or dislike, no matter how small. There a lot of great family Halloween movies and there are some not so great ones. Here are 5 of my favorite family Halloween movies.

1. Halloweentown Series

The Halloweentown series (Halloweentown, Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge, Halloweentown High, and Return to Halloweentown) is perfect for kids and the series grows up with them. This is a cute movie series!

2. Hocus Pocus

This movie is a little darker but still fun. Talking cats, silly witches, and a nice zombie!

3. Casper

Casper is the cutest! He's a friendly ghost! This brings in Halloween elements, corny jokes, and cute animation!

4. Twitches

This is a Halloween movie for a bit older children. This movie can be great to watch with teenagers. (And it gets them to bond with you!)

5. The Addams Family

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F29%2F636133023415901615-1914643646_200.gif%232&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=502&h=451e2b28fa0918dc8c0b8d8a78ddf81881c59bbff604cd6272b4d8762e193a7c&size=980x&c=3461286846 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F29%252F636133023415901615-1914643646_200.gif%25232%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D502%26h%3D451e2b28fa0918dc8c0b8d8a78ddf81881c59bbff604cd6272b4d8762e193a7c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3461286846%22%7D" expand=1]

This one will probably be the adults favorite! Especially with Morticia Addams.

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
