With all the little princesses and goblins preparing for a creepy Halloween night full of tricks, join TVOKids as they help fill their bags up full of fun and educational Halloween treats. Beginning October 11th and all the way through until the big day, TVOKids and tvokids online present Halloween-themed episodes of kid-favourite shows, festive games and a new Monster Mash-Up contest.
The TVOKids Halloween Countdown clock is counting down to the big day. This year, The Space, Ontario’s only live and interactive after-school programming block for school-aged kids, is making Halloween even more interactive by giving kids the chance to vote on what Halloween decorations should be used and where to put them. Kids will get a chance to call in to the Buzz Box with their spookiest sounds, and share their best decorating and costume tips during the live block. Plus, kids will have a chance to play along at home with great interactive educational games, like Creepy Crawlers and Haunt-a-Word!
Have you ever wanted to see what you’d look like as a pirate, mummy, or an alien? Upload a picture of your face and create your very own monster mash-up. Check out the Monster Mash-Up contest and you could win a digital camera, or TVOKids prizes
Try not to cover your eyes while playing games like Monster Match, Creepy Candy, or Big Escape 2: Under the Big Top. Do you want your Jack-O-Lantern to be the coolest in the neighbourhood? Print out and use lots of fun carving templates to turn your pumpkin into a vampire, Frankenstein monster, werewolf and more!
Parents, don’t forget to take a look at our helpful safety tips to help keep your kids safe and happy this Halloween.
