All through the month of October we do a Friday spooky family movie night. My kids are ages 5-10 so we cant have anything to scary. We choose a movie and make some type of sweet treat to go with the theme. Examples are Haunted Mansion, we made a haunted house cake, Great pumpkin Charlie brown we made popcorn balls shaped like pumpkins. Hocus Pocus we did Witch hat cupcakes.
The only one I have planned for this year is Ghostbusters with glow in the dark jello or ectoplasm (from pinterest recipe).
Im positive you guys have some good suggestions for me :)
What family friendly movie would you suggest with what kind of treat?

My 5 year old loves beetlejuice.... I haven't seen fun size though, ill check that one out and of course Nightmare before Christmas, my kids say its my life story! We were at the grand canyon and I was taking pictures of spooky trees. Only you Mom would see Halloween in the Grand Canyon they said to me, haha... oh well, the Halloween bug bit me hard when I was just a little kid. I see Halloween in everything everywhere

How about Paranorman and Hotel Transylvania? Some simple spooky treats we used to make were "monster toes" which are cocktail franks wrapped with strips of flour tortilla and baked, and spaghetti and "eyeballs", where you make your regular meatballs but add a sliced of stuffed greed olive to make it look like an eye. My kids used to love these - actually, at 22 and 26 they still do! ;)

I see Halloween everywhere, too. Check out this tree pic.

Ps, When Good Ghouls Go Bad, and The Halloween Tree.

Edward ScissorHands. A very Quirky movie that would be good for A Halloween Night. That or The Night Before Christmas. Pumpkin Pie as a sweet treat? I usually watch Jason Voorhese or Micheal Myers movies with my family... Granted all my kids are teens.
