It sort of snuck up on us, didn’t it? October, that is, and those leaves will be turned before you get a chance get Tom Turkey into the oven on Thanksgiving Day. So be prepared—it’s a busy month. These savvy tips should help.
DO
Register yourself for the national Do Not Call List
Why? Because you don’t have time for telemarketers and they’ll soon be able to try to reach you on your cell phones (so not savvy).

GO
To Boo at the Zoo Daytime
Why? We know about the annual spookalicious Halloween celebration haunting zoo pathways after dark from October 26 – 30, but there is another event (not so scary to us) that can be terrifying to the preschool crowd. For the very young, visit during daylight hours (10 am – 3 pm) on Halloween day for creepy crawly encounters and a costume parade at high noon.

GET
Your turkey and your Halloween candy early
Why? Pre-ordering your bird from the butcher ensures you get the right size and buying the candy before the last-minute scramble ensures you can get nut-free treats.

PLAY
Dress Up
Why? Isn’t it obvious? You’ll have new costumes (and adults can play too).
