Roundup: Halloween and other October Activities for Kids

It's that time of year again when we have so many holidays coming upon us! This month, we are celebrating the beginning of fall, Columbus Day, and of course Halloween! Around our house we are starting our celebrations early because baby #4 is coming at the end of this month so we will definitely be scaling back our activities then. Still, we are looking forward to celebrating as much as we can in the next couple of weeks.

Below is a round-up of a few October activities we have previously shared with you. We hope you have fun celebrating with your family, friends, and schools!
