This month is all about giving thanks and giving candy. There really isn’t a lot to complain about if you look at it that way. Here’s our check list for making sure you get (and give) the most out of this month.
Get your Halloween costume and/or accessories soon.
Why? Because all the good ones sell out early. Trust us, we’ve made ghost costumes from old sheets enough times to learn that lesson. Watch out for next week’s Halloween Guide that’s filled with lots of inspiration.
To the CRD Parks for the free weekend nature series, open to all ages.
Why? It’s a great way to discover new parks in and around Victoria (before the rain sets in) while learning interesting facts about the creatures that live in them.
Peek-A-BOO (or hide and seek). Let the kids dress up in their Halloween costume and hide. Then they have to yell BOO when you find them. For older kids, let them hide inside and out. For younger children, set boundaries so they don’t go too far or let them hide with an older sibling/friend.
Why? It’s a classic game with an easy Halloween twist. Kids love when their parents have to come and find them—no matter what the age.
