Little tots are scared of the dark, haunted houses, and scary movies on Halloween. But, you can view fun Halloween movies with little kids too. Some great classic Halloween movies for little kids include: It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Barney’s Halloween Party, and Arthur’s Scary Stories. We also found two NEW Halloween DVDs to share with the little ones in a nanny’s or au pair’s charge.

What are your favorite Halloween movies for children?


  1. I am glad to see there are things out there to celebrate and enjoy the Halloween Season for younger children. I usually care for toddlers or pre-schoolers, and always dread this time of the year. Because of all the scary/evil decorations. Is anyone else upset that public places such as, the grocery stories/libraries/front of homes display gory or evil decorations?My past charges(aged 3 and 4) would get very upset when we entered the A-n-P and right in the front lobbby there was a scary/evil looking life-size monster that made scary sounds, had blood all over it and then took it's head off.My charges would cry and cling to me and say- Take me home! I don't want to go in there, there are monsters/vampires/ghosts in there who will get me! In the library on the way to story time- they too had scary/gory displays right in the front enterance. I mentioned this to the places, and thankfully they realized this was inconsiderate to younger children after they saw how upset my charge was.~Andrea, Nanny, Northern, NJ

  2. Oh, I hear you Andrea. Between nanny jobs during the nanny job downturn where I used to live I took temp jobs as a Halloween Store Manager. The scary stuff was all in the front, and some kids couldn't even get in the front door to get back to the costume area. I hated it, this was a community with an EXTREMELY high volume of little kids. People who want the gore will always hunt for that in the store. But keep the kid friendly stuff in their sight.Anyway, about movies. Charlie Brown, ultimate. I couldn't tell you who produced it but a cartoon version of Legend of Sleepy Hollow for slightly older charges. A few years ago I found this awesome PC book about teaching tolerance to young kids. My former toddler and preschool charges loved it. Then of course they decided we needed to make different colored and shaped pumpkins during art time.

  3. I like giving kids gifts that aren't candy and this is actually a good idea.Dana Wright Durham
