31 Not-So Scary Halloween Movies for kids(1)Family movie night gets a little “hair-raising” at this time of year!

For us, the beginning of Fall marks the start of our “Not-So-Scary Hallo

ween Movies for Kids” nightly marathons. We try to watch at least one Halloween movie a night and the days we have to miss because of our hectic lives, we binge watch a few in one day to make up for it.

There are always a few titles on our “must-watch” list, some that bring back memories from my childhood and some that I’d like to create new memories of with my boys.

Here are 31 Not-So Scary Halloween Movies for Kids that I can’t wait to watch.

Let the countdown begin!

What are your Halloween family favourites? Anything I missed?

    perfect timing! My son wants to have some friends over for a spooky movie – and I was on the hunt for some appropriate for 6-9 year olds!

      I have a 7 year old and I would let him watch all of these. I may be a little more lenient compared to some in what I let my kids watch but as long as they know it’s just pretend there’s no harm.

    We love so many of these. Monster House was one of my favorites but it creeped out my oldest (a teen) when he was little and he STILL won’t let us watch it. πŸ™‚

    I’m amazed at how many Halloween movies are out there and the fact that they’re ok for kids is really great.
