Halloween Costumes

Do you have your Halloween costumes yet? PBS KIDS for Parents has all kinds of DIY costume suggestions, including some from your favorite PBS KIDS shows.

POLDARK SEASON 3 ON MASTERPIECE: Sundays at 8PM October , The third season of action-packed episodes starring Aidan Turner as charismatic Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as his remarkable partner, Demelza, finds Poldark in revolutionary France, where the firebrands outdo even Warleggan for ruthlessness.

THE COLLECTION ON MASTERPIECE: Sundays, October 8-29 at 9PM, In post-World War II, Paul Sabine is restoring Paris as the fashion capital of the world. His dresses are a sensation, and only his shady past and an inconvenient corpse block his way to success. Dressing up was never so dazzling—or dangerous.

THE DURRELLS IN CORFU SEASON 2 ON MASTERPIECE: Sundays at 7PM starting October 15, Keeley Hawes stars as a plucky widowed mother in the adventures of an eccentric English family on a Greek isle in the 1930s. The bohemian Durrells fit right in with the light-hearted Greeks—except when they disastrously don’t.

I hope you're able to enjoy some of these resources and hopefully the tempuratures will begin to fall this October. Enjoy!

Take care,
