Fall is seriously one of our favorite times of year in Autismland. Now that we live in Arizona, you can feel the season change. One of our most fun traditions is to watch the 13 days of Halloween on Freeform. Imagine our giddiness when they decided this year to turn it into the 31 Days of Halloween. I make popcorn and hot chocolate, throw some logs on the fire, and enjoy a movie. We only do one movie per day so it’s just a few hours. It’s a cheap, fun way to spend time together.
Another great part is that they play the movies several times during the month so if we miss it for say, dance, there is always a chance to catch it again. Now, not all the movies are appropriate for small children. Do your research beforehand. My favorite part is that Hocus Pocus plays all Halloween day.
