7 Themed Halloween Books, Crafts, and Snacks to Try This October

0

Our Octobers are filled with festivities guaranteed to get us in the Halloween Spirit. Whether it’s decorating the house with home-made decorations, visiting a pumpkin patch, or watching a scary movie- You can find us making the most out of this spooky holiday. One of my favorite thing to do is themed holiday meals, movies, books, crafts, and snacks. When October rolls around, I love to plan fun Halloween themed activities that include a story and/or craft and/or snack. It takes a little planning and creativity to pull an afternoon of themed activities but I (along with my friend, Pinterest) am going to make it easy for you by sharing my list of 7 themed Halloween books, crafts, and snacks to try this October.

Kim McNeely
Kim grew up in a small town in northeast Alabama. She majored in journalism in college at Faulkner University. There she met baseball-playing Florida boy named David who swept her off her feet and then married her. David went right into a teaching/coaching career and Kim lost her desire to write. Before kids, she worked in insurance and as an office administrator. In 2008, they started a family and Kim fell in love with motherhood. She has been working as a stay at home mom for almost 10 years, occasionally, letting the laundry pile up and devoting her time to raising three children. Her kids have grown up on the ball field cheering on their daddy's baseball teams. They moved to Brandon just over a year ago and have enjoyed exploring Tampa. Kim likes being creative and crafty. She is a list-maker, scheduler, and planner. She loves planning play dates, parties, and budget-friendly family activities. Kim spends her days convincing her nine year old, Emerson, to wash her hair; teaching her kindergartener, Everly, sight words; and making sure her curious two year old and only son, Easton, isn't playing in the toilets. She loves children's books and reading bedtime stories. If she finds some free time, she writes her blog, catches up on her favorite TV shows, scrolls social media, and folds massive piles of laundry. Her desire to write returned when she realized that her children were an endless source of inspiration. You can follow Kim as she documents and finds ways to soak in every ounce of her children's childhood on Facebook, Instagram, and on her blog as The Sentimental Mom.
