We are in the Halloween spirit at our house! We have already been to several Trunk or Treats and have more to come. My kids love wearing their Halloween costumes all over the place.
I like to give my kids a small Halloween gift. My parents always did it with us growing up so I like to carry on the tradition. They get SO much candy that I like to get a gift that is not food related. This year we gave them four great Halloween DVDs!
“CAILLOU’S HALLOWEEN” features 13 stories including “Caillou Loves Halloween,” “Pumpkin Patch Kid,” and “Caillou’s Halloween Costume.” In “Caillou’s Halloween Costume,” Caillou and Rosie are trying to pick out costumes as Halloween quickly approaches – but Caillou can’t decide what he wants to be. With help from Mommy and Daddy, a furry blue monster costume is created for Caillou so he can join Leo, a cowboy, and Clementine, a bumblebee, for trick-or-treating! The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
Join Buddy and his family and friends for some spooktastic adventures! The Pteranodon family visits a haunted roundhouse in Troodon Town where they meet a nocturnal mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium. The fun continues when the family goes to a pumpkin patch and learns about carving pumpkins from Larry Lambeosaurus. The four stories included on this DVD are “Night Train,” “Fossil Fred,” “Haunted Roundhouse,” and “Big Pond Pumpkin Patch.” The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
Combine Halloween excitement with mathematical fun and you’ve got “PEG + CAT: A TOTALLY AWESOME HALLOWEEN.” This DVD features four adventures, two of which are Halloween themed – “The Parade Problem” and “The Halloween Problem.” In “The Parade Problem,” kids will learn about sorting and estimating as they watch Peg and Cat clean up a park to ensure the nursery school’s Halloween parade takes place. The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
In the DVD “WORDWORLD: HALLOWEEN FUN,” join the WordFriends on adventures that demonstrate the connections between letters, sounds, words, and meaning. This DVD features five stories including “A Kooky Spooky Halloween” and “Sheep’s Halloween Costume.” In “A Kooky Spooky Halloween,” Pig is so worried about finishing his Halloween bags, because he’s missing the letter B, that he ends up sleepwalking. As he sleepwalks, collecting Bs along the way, everyone thinks he’s a ghost! The SRP for this DVD is $6.99.
These DVDs are a huge hit with my kids! I even watched a little bit to get into the Halloween spirit. The shows are all educational and get my young kids interested and excited about learning.
You can find these DVDs at your local store or on Amazon.
