There is NOTHING our family loves more than to celebrate holidays. Some of our favorite ways to celebrate are with books, games, and movies. So, today I am sharing all of our favorite Halloween themed books, games, and movies plus a freebie for you. Hope they help you have a ghoulish time together!
Holidays are the perfect time to take a small break and add some fun in your homeschool. Reading books, playing games, and watching movies are all excellent ways to approach homeschooling.
Halloween Picture Books
For us picture books are the perfect way to keep everyone in our homeschool happy. Emily is an auditory learner and Kevin and I are visual leaners. So using beautiful picture books means we are all equally engaged. Here is a list of our favorite Halloween picture books to use in our homeschool.

One of our favorite things to do as a family is have a family movie night. We quickly incorporated that into our homeschool, and boy are we glad we did. So many amazing lessons have unfolded from us simply watching a documentary or comparing and contrasting a book and a movie that we’ve read and watched.
