October begins with gratitude and ends with chocolate and candies. Sounds a bit out of order, but we’€™ll take it. Here are more ways to enjoy this autumn month.
DO
Get thee to a farm
Why? To pick apples, wander through a pumpkin patch, pick up a fresh pie and go for a hay ride.

GO
To Toons for Toddlers
Why? Because it’€™s the perfect first movie experience that’s toddler friendly (with reduced sound and dim lighting). On October 20 and 21, The Wiggles Big Birthday will be screened in select theatres across Canada. Tickets are only $6 (babes in arms are free) and can be purchased in advance at toonsfortoddlers.com or by phoning 1-888-222-6608. (From Our Partner: Movies for Mommies)

GET
Halloween-ready
Why? Because we have lots of great inspirational tips and ideas to help make your Halloween planning less spooky.

PLAY
Dress up
Why? Because you have the costumes all ready (since you’re Halloween-ready) and you don’€™t really have a choice. It’€™s kind of a mandatory activity this month, so join in.

READ
Everybody Has Everything by Katrina Onstad
Why? Because it’€™s fresh and smart, and asks an often unasked question: ‘€˜Can everyone be a parent?’€™ It explores the possibility of the perfect and prosperous life of an urban couple turning inside out by an unexpected tragedy’€”leading to them becoming the legal guardians of their friend’€™s child.

GREEN IT
To prepare your trees for winter, let fallen leaves lie
Why? Because leaves are Mother Nature’s natural fertilizer. As fallen leaves decompose they transform into nutrients and organic matter the tree needs. However, diseased leaves should be removed from your yard to help avoid repeat problems the following year.

SURF
TrueMomConfessions.com
Why? Because it’€™s a forum for moms that makes it easy to anonymously share your humorous or horrifying parenting stories’€”without judgment!

APP IT
The Pocket Whip
Why? Because sometimes you need to get your whip out and take control. Be large and in charge. Show them you mean it. It’€™s your job.

MAKE IT
Make one of these simple fall crafts from our Savvy Storyteller, East Coast Mommy
Why? Because we think the little pumpkins are the perfect table decor for your Thanksgiving celebration.

HELP
Walk for the Children on October 14
Why? Because your family gets to enjoy a fun-filled day at the Toronto Zoo while supporting an incredible cause. All funds raised go to support the Herbie Fund, helping children from all over the world receive life-saving surgeries at SickKids that would otherwise not be available to them in their home countries.

DEAL IT
Get $40 worth of food from St. Lawrence Market delivered right to your door for just $19. Order online from 27 St. Lawrence Market merchants and choose your seasonal favourites.
Why? Because the harvest season is the best time to buy fresh local produce. And you have some groceries to buy for your Thanksgiving feast. And it gets delivered to your door.
