Use this free printable Halloween Movie Bucket List to keep track of spooky and classic Halloween movies that you want to watch this year! You could even use the free movie list to create a new fun Fall family tradition!
When October arrives and the weather turns cooler, there’s nothing I enjoy more than curling up under a fleece blanket and watching movies. And now that our daughters are a bit older, we make it a family affair! One night a week, we order pizza and we all pile in bed to watch a family movie together.
It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do as a family, because we all enjoy watching a good flick, and it’s an inexpensive and fun way to spend some quality time with each other.
So I decided to take our October movie nights one step further with this free printable Halloween movie bucket list! My family and I recently sat down to plan out our movie nights for the Fall months, and I’m sharing my cute Halloween bucket list templates with you so that your movie-loving monsters can enjoy this fun October tradition, too!
What is a Halloween Movie Bucket List?
A Halloween movie bucket list is like your fun to-do list for October. You can create a bucket list of scary Halloween movies or family-friendly flicks that you want to watch leading up to Halloween, and then check the movies off your list as you watch them.
This free printable Halloween Bucket List is perfect to use for Fall date nights or to complete with your kids when the weather turns cooler and you just want to snuggle up in your comfiest PJs, munching on candy, and sipping hot cider. It’s basically a promise to yourself to watch all of the best Halloween flicks, and to spend time with the people you love while getting into the Halloween mood.
