Fun Halloween Movies for Toddlers
This gentle movie is based on the classic book by Julia Donaldson. It’s fun, whimsical, and very sweet. This is my number one choice of great toddler Halloween movies. You can view it via Amazon Prime and it’s also available on Netflix.
Learn all about Halloween and fall from the Cat in the Hat. This fun choice is full of silliness and catchy songs. If you toddler is already a fan of the Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That, they’ll love this choice.
In this movie, George and his friends has a fun (and slightly spooky) adventure after hearing the legend of No Noggin, who likes to kick the hats off of everyone’s heads. It’s a fun choice for little Curious George fans.
Like most Pooh movies, this is a gentle take on a Halloween story. The friends get a little scared because Halloween can be so spooky. But, they learn that the can be brave together.
This selection from Scholastic is very short (it clocks in at only 7 minutes), but it is a sweet story about a little witch who meets a new friend and experiencing trick or treating for the first time. You can watch it alone via Amazon Prime or watch it along with several short Halloween selections from Scholastic.
Like some of the other choices on this list, so many great toddler Halloween movies are based on beloved children’s books. In this movie, Spookly is teased because he’s a different shape, but with the help of some very good friends he learns that different is awesome.
This movie from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is just the right amount of spooky for your little ones. They’ll love the music and the story line. It’s a great choice for fans of the show.
Your toddlers are not too young to be introduced to this Halloween classic. This is a perfect choice that everyone in the family will love!
Tips For a Successful Halloween Movie Night With Toddlers
You don’t have to have a movie night at night. A tired toddler will just not enjoy a movie. Try having a movie afternoon or even a movie at breakfast.
Keep things short. Since toddlers have a short attention span, you shouldn’t pop in a full-length movie. These selections are all either around 30 minutes or an hour in length.
Let them play. Don’t expect your toddler to set still for an entire more. If they’d rather sit and play while watching, let them. They’ll have fun and you’ll have a better time too.
