The best kids Halloween movies vary, depending on the age of the kids. But there are some universally accepted family friendly Halloween movies, and those are being shared here today.
We love to have family movie and game nights. When the kids were little we started collecting holiday movies and we like to pull them out a few weeks before any holiday to start the excitement. I'm going to share our favorite kids Halloween movies so you can start your own library or choose one or two to share with your kids.
These are all family friendly, some are classic and some are newer so there is something here for everyone! They are in no particular order by favorite, but the top row is more enjoyable if you have older kids, the middle row smaller kids and the bottom row are more classic movies. If I did have to pick a favorite it would definitely be It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
The best kids Halloween movie, according to the followers on my Miss Information Facebook Page, is Hocus Pocus.
