Nightmare Before Christmas FAQs
It’s definitely a creepy kids’ movie with a bit of violence and dark themes. But, my oldest has been watching it since he was 5 years old, and he loves the movie. I wouldn’t recommend it for kids who easily get nightmares or might not understand that the movie is pretend.
Disney Publishing is working on a sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas. This time, it won’t be an animated film but will instead be an illustrated book.
We like to think it’s both! We start watching it right around Halloween and continue through Christmas. I’d say it’s technically a Christmas movie, but there are so many Halloween themes that it works for both holidays.
Oogie Boogie Guessing Game
To prepare your spooky game, download the PDF of this Nightmare Before Christmas guessing game. The printable set includes a sign and a page of guessing cards.
Using cardstock, print out as many game cards as you need for your group and one sign.
You can place the sign in a frame with the stack of cards next to it if you want to make it a casual game for a party. Basically, guests can play at their leisure during the party.
Otherwise, you can have the sign next to your bag of creepy crawlers and bring it out when you are ready to play.
Speaking of which, you’ll also need to have a green bag. This is where you will put a rubber snake (for the tongue), plastic spiders, and insects in to make up the villain, Oogie Boogie.
Oogie Boogie is a villainous bag of bugs in the Nightmare Before Christmas movie who tries to take over Halloween Town.
The items can be small trinkets or gummy candies, whatever you want to use.
I think it’s fun if the items are of different sizes. That way, it makes the game a little more challenging.
You can make this bag of Halloween tricks or treats as the prize or do something completely different, like a plastic pumpkin filled with candy.
Other prize ideas include these cute Nightmare Before Christmas stickers, Jack Skellington Funko Pop, or Sally Christmas ornament.
