Did you hear?  Goosebumps 2 is arriving on digital on Christmas, Dec. 25th, and then will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD beginning on January 15th. What a great Christmas gift to give to that special R.L. Stine fan in your life, or as a way to wind with with a great family-friendly movie come Christmas night. 

We missed Goosebumps 2 when it was in theaters, but it has been on my radar to pick up and share with the family, and I can't wait to surprise the girls with it on Christmas.  After they are done opening their gifts from Santa and we have enjoyed a nice meal with family, everyone will be relaxing in the living room...the perfect time for a good movie, which was a hit when it was in theaters.  If you were like us and missed it, or for some reason you were living under a rock and didn't not it came it out :-)  here is more about the movie, including the official trailer.


More about this upcoming release:

"You’re in for a fun scare when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes GOOSEBUMPS 2 debuting on Digital and available via the Movies Anywhere App on December 25 and coming to Blu-ray™ and DVD January 15. Slappy the devious ventriloquist dummy returns to run amuck, in this second installment of the family-friendly franchise based on R.L. Stine’s beloved book series. Standing in Slappy’s way is a terrifyingly talented cast including Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Caleel Harris (Castle Rock), and Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty), with Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians).

The GOOSEBUMPS 2 Blu-ray, DVD and Digital bonus features include a gag reel full of hilarious hijinks, three all-new deleted scenes and five featurettes. Between the chills, thrills and goosebumps, watch the cast get a case of the giggles in the “Gag Reel.” Dive deep in “Thrills & Chills- The Making of Goosebumps 2” with Madison Iseman, along with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. “Meet the Monsters” gives fans a sneak peek of how the scary creatures were brought to life. In “Slappy’s Audition,” watch what happens when Slappy auditions for the role he was born to play. In “Science with Slappy,” enter the Slapatory where Madison, Jeremy and Caleel join Slappy for some electrifying experiments! And get ready to sing along with three hilarious “Slappy-oke” songs.  Who knew dummies could sing?


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!

My girls were first turned on to the Goosebumps books and movies when they found it streaming on television last year.  Since, they have picked up a handful of the books from the library and read them, and have been watching the first movie repeatedly, in anticipation for the sequel, which they think they will be waiting until Jan. 15th for.  I am not usually good at keeping secrets as I get excited and like to see them smile, but I have been good and not spilling the beans on the digital release on Christmas.  I only have 1 day left to hold my tongue.  Crossing my fingers I can hold out. :-)

As part of our homeschooling, though, today, I thought I was going to cave and tell them as we were doing gummy bear science.  What better way to teach science than with fun hands on activities and experiments. And, there is so much you can do with gummy bears, besides eating them, or even baking with them (which we did, too!).  

Thanks to a fun #Goosebumps2Gummies challenge package we were sent in the mail the other day, I was sent enough gummy bears to last me a lifetime...well, not really, but there were a lot of packages. 

This was just from the green bag -- the pink bag was filled with them too, as was the treasure chest.

In addition to all the gummy bears, there were recipe cards and science experiment cards included, as well as ad digital code for us to see the movie when it arrives on Digital  through Movies Anywhere Christmas Day.  

The green bag also had a container of candy sprinkles we used to make mocktails, as well as paper straws and white melting chocolate for the gummy bark recipe included

We were also sent science experiment supplies including test tubes, gloves, safety goggles and even an UV flashlight, along with more gummy bear, in the pink bag below...

The girls already have Jan. 15th circled on their calendars for the DVD release of this movie, so thought I was sent this fun Goosebumps 2 package to count down until the Blu-Ray/DVD release date.  :-)

We did all of the recipes minus the holiday gummy bear bark and Slappy's Holiday Thumbprint cookies, as we wanted to save some baking for tomorrow.  

The girls woke up this AM and wanted to make brownies, which turned into a morning of making 3 different kinds of brownies...this after making 4 dozen assorted cookies the day before.  I don't remember asking Santa for weight gain this holiday season, but with all the tasty treats we have been baking up, hopefully Santa brings some exercise equipment for me. :-)

The girls really loved the Goosebumps Gummy Bear Slime and watching their gummy bears grow overnight (we started this experiment yesterday to give them time to grow). 

Growing and Glowing Gummy Bears...oh so cool!...

And, the Gummy Bear Slime was a hit, too!...

I also picked up tonic water and showed the girls how the gummy bears can glow in the dark when placed in tonic water, which they thought was so cool.

In addition to the Gummy Bear Holiday "Mocktails" we made, the girls had leftover chocolate, and decided to melt it and roll marshmallows on a stick in it, before dipping in sprinkles and then topping with gummy bears.  

Bella knows what's up...Gummy Bear Holiday Mocktails Time!...

Love her look of excitement seeing the gummy bears in the cup. :-)

And, Savannah was all about the chocolate dipped marshmallows covered in sprinkles and gummy bears...

After these two treats, they were on a sugar high and talking non-stop about the upcoming Goosebumps movie.  They had a blast with all the gummy bear fun, and know that the Goosebumps 2 movie will be even better than the first one.  They can't wait to see what is to come of Slappy and the evil Gummy Bears.  But, in the meantime, they now have some fun recipes to make with all the gummy bears we have, and are still watching their gummy bears grow in water.  

So, as you wind down your holiday shopping and planning for Christmas, why not consider making a note to order Goosebumps 2 when it arrives on Digital on Tuesday, Dec. 25th.  This movie is sure to make for a fun family movie night after a crazy morning.  I, for one, am looking forward to just kicking back on the couch and snuggling up with my family, as we watch Goosebumps 2 for the first time. 

Want to try some of the recipes we made, read on to see a video about the fun Gummy Bear slime we made (which is edible), as well as the recipe card for Slappy's Holiday Thumbprint cookies, we will be making tomorrow and leaving out for Santa.  My youngest can't wait to see Santa's reaction when he sees we made these with gummy bears.  She will leave his favorite chocolate chip cookies with milk, but is leaving a note to let him know the thumbprint cookies have gummy bears, too! She said with all the cookies he will eat on Christmas Eve, these will probably be the only ones with gummy bears. :-)

I am also sharing fun Goosebumps 2 holiday gift tags you can print and add to your your family's gifts. I am thinking to print one off and leaving a note for the girls letting the know the digital movie is ready for viewing on Christmas, thanks to Santa. :-)

Please enjoy a batch of goodies for you to get your families  into the holiday spirit this season featuring  GOOSEBUMPS 2 Holiday Gift Tags, a recipe for Slappy’s Holiday Thumbprint Cookies, and a fun slime recipe bonus features clip to get everyone excited for the Blu-ray, DVD & Digital releases!
