We don’t know anyone who doesn’t aspire to be Marnie Piper, the teenage witch in training. She has a super cool grandmother and most importantly, she gets to go to Halloweentown. JEALOUS. Halloweentown boasts some not-so-scary ghouls, and lessons in the unity of family and acceptance. While sitting back with some popcorn, encourage your kiddos to try sketching some of their favorite scenes, objects, or characters!

Halloween initiation begins with a viewing of Hocus Pocus. One might even argue that you are not a true Halloween fanatic until you have watched this classic.

Last, but not least, is a Tim Burton classic.
