Happy Hallowe’en! Wanna see a scary movie?



Happy Hallowe’en everyone!

If you’re a regular reader of the Movies4Kids blog/news pages, you’ll have read our previous Hallowe’en movie round-up of the scary (but not too scary) movies you can watch with your kids tonight (and if not, you can catch up with it here).

Here’s something different for this Hallowe’en, a special Movies4Kids collection of some of the greatest, most fun, creepy and cool Hallowe’en movies for kids (no 18 certificate films included!). Hope you like it, and if you do, please give it a thumbs up on YouTube and subscribe to the Movies4Kids channel!


20 Grossest Things Parents Do (according to their kids)



It’s Halloween today, so it’s the perfect time to find out what things we parents do that our kids find truly horrific (so we can do them some more).

The survey  of UK kids was carried out to celebrate the return of CBBC TV series Scream Street, with new episodes starting tonight at 6pm. In case you’ve never seen it, Scream Street is the horror comedy series for kids based on the book series of the same name that follows the adventures of Luke Watson, who would be a regular teenager if it wasn’t for that pesky werewolf gene!

Check out the trailer for tonight’s Halloween special by clicking here and get ready for the 20 Ways Parents Gross Out Their Kids… (how many are you guilty of?)


1. Kissing them at the school gates / in public

2. Telling them off in public

3. Wiping food off their face

4. Holding their hand

5. Sharing embarrassing photos of them

6. Farting in public

7. Telling embarrassing jokes

8. Snogging

9. Calling them a pet name

10. Playing embarrassing music

11. Telling baby stories about them

17. Eating horrible food such as oysters, sushi and vegetables
