Just curious what fun activities you lovely Bitchin' Ladies do with your kids for the month of October?
I love October! The trees changing colours, leaf piles, crisp Autumn air, scary movies with hubby, getting dark earlier (feels so cozy), harvest moons, Thank's Giving (here in Canada), Hallowe'een at end of the month.
This year my kids are a bit older and able to do more Autumn activities. I'm really excited to have a Fall/Hallowe'en filled month.
One day, Ben and I harvested seeds from our garden for next year. Ben had a blast figuring out how to get seeds out of different plants and flowers and we sorted them into cups.
We just bought a bunch of Hallowe'en stuff. The kids got glow in the dark bats to stick to their walls above their beds. We got them Hallowe'en place mats. These little capsules you put in water that turn into foam Hallowe'en characters. And ended the night with the movie, The Hallowe'en Buddies. The kids had a blast.
Then we did apple picking the following day and bought the kids their pumpkins. My hubby makes mean pumpkin seeds with brown sugar, cinnimon and spice.
I'm trying to find an album with contact sheets! Can't find them anywhere. I want to use one to collect and press leaves and flowers with the kids.
Also planning on attempting my first Candy Apples this year! And/or making sugar cookies the kids can decorate. Just have to get some Hallowe'en/Fall cookie cutters.
So we're planning on watching lots of Hallowe'en movies this month. We have Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin (is that what it's called?). But anyone have any other suggestions for Hallowe'en movies?
Share fun activities and suggestions to help make this an exciting month of Hallowe'en/Fall themed activities!!!
