Halloween might still seem like it’s in the far-off future ... unless you have young kids.
Basically, as soon as the splash pads stop running, kids start obsessing about their costumes, decorations, pumpkins, and — of course — candy. Stores putting out their Halloween displays once Labour Day is over don’t exactly help. Surely we’re not the only house that’s been boasting an entire inflatable, light-up pumpkin patch since mid-September?
Anyway, one way to stop your kid from attempting to trick-or-treat while it’s still technically summer is to instead convince them to sit down and watch a spooky (but not too spooky!) Halloween show. Luckily, Netflix Canada has tons of great options for your ghost-obsessed, younger kid.
