How to Have a Frightfully Awesome Halloween Movie Night

Take turns picking the movie.
There is always a fight with my kids who picks the movie. Drives me crazy! We never seem to agree on the movie, yet once it gets started we are all relaxed and enjoying the movie!
Pre-Select some movies for the kids to choose from.
Especially with Halloween time, it’s important to do a little pre-screening of movies to make sure they aren’t too scary, gory or not age appropriate for your family.
Put it on the schedule!
My kids know that every Friday at 8p is Family Movie Night. Our activities for the week are over and everyone is home. We put our electronics away and get together in the living room.
I found that if the kids know that we are going to stop the movie half way through they are less likely to have me pause the movie 10,000 times to go to the bathroom, get more to drink or refill their popcorn.
My kids love getting into their pajamas and bringing out their blankets and pillows to get comfortable on the couch and floor to watch the movie.
Get into the Halloween spirit
I like to pick up Halloween themed snacks and drinks to go along with our Halloween themed family movie night! My kids have been known to even show up at family movie night in costumes!
Pick the right snacks & drinks!
I picked up some of our favorite family movie night snacks at Walmart: Fanta and Act II Popcorn!
