My four year old loves all things spooky. At a Christmas party last year she asked the balloon animal clown to make her a skeleton. She is a huge fan of Halloween and has been counting the days until the next Halloween since the day after last Halloween. We are going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party at Disney World this year and we all cannot wait. I was so excited to hear about the upcoming Halloween DVDs from PBS Kids because that would combine her favorite TV channel and her favorite holiday. Caillou, Peg + Cat, and WordWorld are some of her and her sister’s favorite shows so the entire family was excited to receive these. They are full of some pretty amazing Halloween episodes and are perfect for getting in the spirit of the holiday! They will all be available for purchase on September 1st, but you can preorder your copies now!
Caillou: Caillou’s Halloween
“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! Purchase here.
Peg + Cat: A Totally Awesome Halloween
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. After watching Peg and Cat solve this problem, kids can join Peg, who dresses up as a mailbox, and Cat, who decides to be a fire hydrant, on a trick-or-treating adventure that features the duo using their math skills to divide up Halloween treats so that everyone gets a fair share. Purchase here.
WordWorld: Halloween Fun
In the frightfully fun 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! Purchase here.
