The Best Ways to Spend October!

As the leaves start to change color and the weather grows cooler, we know that October has arrived! This month is always such a fun time as we start to prepare for one of the BEST holidays, Halloween. If you’re looking for some fun and creative ways to spend this October, look no further! Here are a few of our favorites…

Fun and Creative Pumpkin Carving Contests:

One of the best things about October is all of the pumpkins! What better way to celebrate than to have a pumpkin carving contest? You can make it a family affair or invite friends over for a fun night of competition. Whoever has the most creative pumpkin carving wins a prize!

Favorite Family Halloween Films:

Another great way to spend October is by cuddling up with your family and watching some of your favorite Halloween films. Some of our personal favorites include Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. But there are so many great options out there, so pick your favorites and enjoy!

Spooky Stories by the Bonfire:

One of our favorite things to do in October is gathered around a bonfire with some friends and tell spooky stories. This is the perfect activity for a chilly fall evening! Just make sure you have some marshmallows and hot chocolate on hand to keep everyone warm.

Caramel Apple Bar:

What’s fall without caramel apples? Set up a DIY caramel apple bar at your next party or get-together! All you need are some apples, caramel, chocolate, sprinkles, and whatever other toppings you want. Then let everyone go crazy creating their own unique caramel apples. They’re sure to be a hit!

Selecting the Perfect Halloween Costume:

One of the best parts of October is getting to dress up in a costume for Halloween! If you’re stuck on what to wear this year, why not try one of these popular costume ideas, like a wicked witch, vampire, or the ever-popular ballerina. Whatever you choose, just make sure you have fun with it! 

P.S- Be sure to participate in our upcoming Halloween Spirit Week at APA October 24th-29th!
