5 Things for the Last Week of October

We have reached the last full week of October.  Make it a great one!

Halloween is one week from today.  If you are looking for costume ideas and treat ideas or ways to let your neighbors know you aren't celebrating, here are a few tips:

1. ON COSTUMES for the little ones, I love these simple, quick DIY ideas compiled by Simple As That.  My favorites are probably the skeleton and Olaf costume ideas!

And check out the video on an even simpler idea that only requires a touch of duct tape to turn it into a costume!


2. ON COSTUMES for the adults, check out these 40 Work-Appropriate Halloween Costumes.  My favorite is the ice cream.

3. ON TRICKS OR TREATS... I am loving the idea of passing out glow sticks or glow bracelets to the Trick-or-Treaters!  Other great ideas include juice boxes, local honey sticks, stickers, bubbles, and toothbrushes.  What are you passing out this year?

Or maybe you aren't giving out candy or treats this year?  That's perfectly okay!  You can let your neighbors know by leaving a note on your door or turning out the lights or even using apps like Nextdoor.  For other ideas when opting out on Halloween night, read more here.


4. ON SAFETY... I loved the glow bracelets idea because it helps other people see where kids may be Halloween night.  A few of my favorite tips listed from these Halloween Safety Tips include:

  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don't run, across the street.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths.
  • Trick or treat with an adult.
  • When driving through neighborhoods, slow down.
  • Know the trick-or-treating hours.

5. Finally, some Monday Motivation to encourage you today... this week...
