  • Prepping for Halloween – October is the month of Halloween, and this month is best spent gearing up for hauntingly fun Halloween parties and celebrations! Decorating your home for Halloween is certainly a must on the list of things to do with your family in October. There are so many great ways to prepare your house for this festive time of year, and getting the kids involved will make a memorable event in itself.
  • Throw an ‘Apple Party’ – Apples are one of the most popular fruits in the month of October – the National Apple Month! Invite your kids and loved ones to throw an apple themed party. And you don’t have to limit your menu to just desserts; turn to creative savory dishes too like Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples, Apple Salads, and apple dressings.
  • Plan a Local Day Trip – Do some research into what’s happening in your community! Depending on your locale, there are sure to be several fall activities in museums, parks, and community centers during this festive time of year. These trips can also be made educational depending on the theme or focus of the location itself.
  • Start a Hobby – Did you know October is National Stamp Collecting Month in the US? It was started by a joint collaboration between United States Postal Service (USPS) and the Council of Philatelic Organizations (COPO). Let October be the month to familiarize your kids with the history of this long held tradition.
  • Plant a Garden – October is the month when tulips, iris, and daffodils bloom. Plant a garden with seasonal flowers, vegetables, and fruits so that you have a lot to look forward to next October. This October activity can also be a way to get kids to eat the vegetable and fruits that they generally avoid.
