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