Original Art by Stephanie DeAngelis

One of our favorite parts of fall is all the nostalgia it brings for family hangs. Halloween films offer up the perfect evening in with the kiddos. Our list of little one–friendly Netflix flicks is here to regale you with spooky seasonal vibes that won’t keep them up past bedtime. These tried-and-true classics aren’t purely relegated to family movie night. They’re fully appropriate for girls’ night in too (nobody’s going to card you.) 

Pass the popcorn and cue up some easy-to-master fall-centric recipes to take in the celebrated celluloid brilliance of everything from extraterrestrials to hocus-pocus. Ghouls, goblins, mystery-solving VW vans—the gang’s all here. Don’t feel like cooking? We got you. Check out our list of heart-melting grilled cheese recipes and have the kids whip up dinner. If they can run the Apple TV, they can master the joy of sandwich art. Did we mention these titles are all instantly queuable? We’re all about the quick family fix.
