"In Haunted Roundhouse, dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decoratedtheir Roundhouse into a “haunted house” for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature – a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep.  And in Big Pond Pumpkin Patch, the Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate “Gourd Day” – a kind of Mesozoic Halloween.

Sid the Science Kid NEW EPISODE Spooky Science Special premieres 10/17 on PBS Kids (check local listings)Show Repeats- 10/25, 10/28, 10/30, 10/31 


"In Halloween Spooky Science Special, it’s Halloween time and Sid and his friends have dressed up in the spookiest andscariest costumes possible.  Sid is a bat with big fangs.  May is a spooky black cat.  Gabriela is a furry, yucky spider.  And Gerald is a super spooky skeleton that goes boo!  Susie (dressed as a silly mad scientist) loves their costumes, and helps the kids discover that Halloween can be spooky and scientific!  The kids investigate how bats are helpful creatures that catch mosquitoes, spiders are expert engineer web builders, cats are leaping aerial acrobats, and skeletons help hold up our body frames!  At the Halloween party, the kids also investigate how to make icky, gooey green slime.  Susie then ends the day with a special “Halloween Parade” song so the kids can march around and show off their spooky and scientific costumes! "


We have already watched the fun new episodes! Every holiday we always enjoy watching all the new or old holiday episodes of our favorite shows these are new ones to add to our list of favorites! And of course my little girl has to wear her Buddy costume while were watching them!

Speaking of costumes The Jim Henson company has a ton of costumes of your favorite characters to choose from. Like Buddy or Tiny and so much more. and you can find a Sid the Science kid treat bag! They have also have created a Buddy or Sid the science kid costume that you can make at home!

Yes I have more to tell you about! To celebrate Halloween they have sent me the Dinosaur Train "Spooky scavenger hunt" book to review and a copy to giveaway!




 "The Spooky Scavenger Hunt” from Grosset & Dunlap in which Mr. Pteranodon takes Buddy and Tiny on a nighttime trip to the Big Pond for a spooky nature walk! Mr. Pteranodon and the conductor insist they can't be scared, but when the conductor's mom jumps out at them, everyone gets a good scare! This simple storybook is perfect for read-aloud fun!  Ages 4 - 8; SRP $3.99.



It is a very cute book and it definitely got my children into the Halloween spirit Its always fun to read books as a family especially holiday books. It is a great book and it didn't scare the children one bit it made Halloween fun! I don't want to give the whole story away since you need to read it for yourself!


One lucky reader will win "The Spooky Scavenger hunt" book!

That's so cute! We take our little ones trick-or-treating at our local town center, and a few days before Halloween my 3 year old and I cut out some scary shapes and made signs to decorate our front porch!
