October is here...and there is so much to enjoy!
First of all, it’s the most colorful month in Michigan! Just look around outside and see the trees turning brilliant shades or orange, red, purple, yellow and brown. You can also have fun raking a leaf pile and jumping in it!
Have you ever pressed leaves in wax paper? They make wonderful window ornaments!
October is a great month to visit an apple orchard and pick your own apples, run through a corn maze or take a ride through the pumpkin patch!
Did you know that a pumpkin with a carved face and a candle or light inside is called a Jack-o-Lantern? That brings us to Halloween! The one night of the year kids can dress up and get free candy. Pretty cool!
If you go trick or treating or to a Halloween party, planning what you are going to wear for a costume is half of the fun! Is your costume going to be funny, spooky, crazy or surprising? Remember to play it safe - trick or treat with a responsible adult and make sure they check the candy out. Don’t forget your flashlight and to go to homes you know.
Whatever you enjoy doing, have a great time this October!
