Fun & Family-Friendly October Activity Ideas!


Even though we are busy working on our Holiday Gift Guide (preview picks here!) we have not forgotten about fall festivities. We rounded up our most popular Halloween and fall blog posts to help you make the most of the rest of October— and make some new memories, too. Whether you are entertaining or just want some simple craft ideas, we have lots of inspiration in today’s post. 

Simple Fall Family Activities

Easy fall crafts at home using supplies you already have? Yes, please! This post is filled with simple, engaging fall-themed crafts for children using the things you likely have on hand. And because fall crafts are not complete without fall treats, we have another snack mix recipe for you, too! 

Fun & Festive Treats for Halloween

Last year, we teamed up with Kristen Massad of Joy + Oliver to whip up some sweet treats and a Halloween-themed snack board! This Halloween Snack Mix is a big hit with children of all ages (and adults!) — make a batch for an after-school treat, or as a Halloween movie night snack. If you are hosting friends for Halloween this would be a hit with adults and children!

Halloween Punch with Dry Ice

Hosting a Halloween get-together, or carving pumpkins with your family this weekend? Then you must make this Halloween punch with dry ice! It’s festive and a total breeze to make — as in, only three ingredients. Little touches like this make even low key gatherings so much fun and memorable for children. A perfect pre-trick or treating thing to serve!

Darling Autumn & Pumpkin Books for Preschoolers

And last but not least, our library book and activity lists are a huge hit with families of young children, and our Autumn and Pumpkin Book Lists are a perfect resource over the next month (before all eyes are on Christmas!). Each printable list comes with complete with daring book recommendations and activities you can do with your young children — from DIY sensory bins to outdoor activities, outing ideas, and much more.
