31 Ideas for an Active October!

{Hi! If you are new to Toddler Approved, come stop by our Facebook page for more ideas to help you create, explore, and learn with your child each day!}



I love Halloween candy and crafts, but tend to overdose on both of them before I've even made it halfway through the month! My goal for this October is more movement and more activity (I'm training for another 1/2 marathon)... and less candy... so EJ and I compiled a post filled with
31 of our favorite Halloween activities
so you can be active too!


(although I may have still snuck one or two candy and craft activities in here...)

Check them out and pass along any favorites that we missed!

  4. These are all great ideas. My 4yo, 2yo and 1yo have been enjoying some of my own ideas and now I have some more inspiration. :-) I've blogged about a few, but the one I want to share as it is so accessible to all ages and all you need is cooked sticky rice and paper to make a spider's web. Its so much fun!
