Halloween season is here! The ChildLife family is fully embracing the spooky holiday and in between pumpkin patches and picking out Halloween costumes, we’re squeezing in a family movie night!
Halloween movie nights are one of the best traditions to start with your family this year. One way to take them to the next level is by making a night of it starting with dinner. We love this recipe for Pesto Franken Pasta or Spooky Mummy Pizza Toasts. For dessert, we suggest Bone Appetit Cookie Dough.
