Do you have family movie nights? One of my favorite pastimes is watching movies with my family.  There is nothing quite like the experience we all have watching something together.  Of course, movie night is not just about the movie in our home!  I am a teacher so you know I am going to turn it into a learning opportunity if I can.  If not, I am definitely going to try to do something fun to connect my kids to the movie.

Now you might think that family movie night needs to be a non-scary movie, but in our home, we enjoy a good friendly scare!  And who better than to provide that friendly scare than R. L. Stine, the author of the Goosebumps series.   To celebrate the release of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween on Blu-Ray/DVD,  we decided to have a little “Science with Slappy!”

Science with Slappy

A family movie night just isn’t complete without popcorn and candy!  One of our favorites are the Haribo Gummy Bears and Goosebumps 2 is the perfect movie to have fun with them.  We even got to have a little fun experimenting with Slappy to find out what would happen to our gummy bears if we left them overnight in different types of liquids.  You might be surprised to find out what happens!

Be careful what you wish for. With their after school junk business, best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash. But when cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a locked book that frees a supernatural nightmare- Slappy! Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium!
