Get Your Halloween Fix! These Spooktacular Movies Are Streaming on Netflix Now
I literally just asked my three-year old want she wanted to be for Halloween this year. Yes, it’s only July, but I am so ready for Fall and Halloween! For those of you who know me, you know this is a truly remarkable statement. I’ve never been a huge fan of Halloween, that is until my daughter came along. She loves all things Halloween – in fact, I think she likes it more than Christmas. She still carries around her pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket and dresses up in some sort of costume at least once a day.
So, in honor of celebrating Halloween in July (because why not), Netflix is streaming a bunch of kid-friendly Halloween movies and shows right now. Now, break out your inner witch and Halloween treats and make it a movie marathon weekend.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering – as of right now, she wants to be Sophia the First, but check back with me as Halloween draws nearer for her final decision, lol.
Okay, here’s the list:
