Five Fun Things to Do in October
1) Start a Halloween Boo Tradition in your neighborhood.
Halloween Boo is ring-and-run at its finest. Neighbors surprise each other with gifts of candies or other treats along with a Halloween Boo poem. If your neighborhood is not in on the fun yet, think about starting the tradition. We have a tutorial on how you can get the party started and your neighbors excited for October 31.
2) Visit a Corn Maze.
Before it gets too chilly, have fun getting through (or not) a winding corn maze. My friend Gabby of Design Mom welcomed autumn by visiting a corn maze. And even though she and her family were lost for a while, they had lots of fun and that’s what it’s all about.
3) Go Trunk-or-Treating.
Yes, you read correctly. Trunk-or-Treat is like tail-gating meets trick-or-treating. Except it’s confined to the parking lots of schools and churches. Party on.
4) Participate in a Chili Cook-Off.
It’s National Chili Month. Of course it is! So, it’s time to compete in that chili cook-off competition just like your friends have always said you should. A little bit of googling will take you to listings of cook-offs in your area.
5) Curl up with the Hunger Games Trilogy.
I’m on the second book, Catching Fire, of the young adult fiction series Hunger Games and I just can’t put it down. Katniss, the teenage heroine of the series is physically fearless, strong and yet vulnerable. In short, she’s very likable (at least up to where I’m at in the book series) and it really highlights what a whiner Bella of Twilight is. Heh.
