October Activities To Do with your Family

October is one of my favorite months out of the year. Everything is so pretty here in Rhode Island when October rolls around. I wanted to share some October Activities To Do with your Family. There are so many options out there during October, take advantage of the beauty and the time of year.

October Activities To Do with your Family


I’m all about making sure we have ample October Activities and things to do in the fall with our kids. I *live* for waking up in the weekends and going to do something fun. I think it’s just the best thing in the world. I also love the togetherness that it brings our family because that’s KEY for me.

October Activities for Kids

Even as the kids have gotten older, being together on the weekends is so important to me. I think I love October the best because the weather still isn’t too hot or too cold. The kids aren’t crazy (yet) with full blown activities for school and clubs. It’s just a great time of year to be able to wear no jackets, yet you’re or sweating your butt off (at least in New England!).

October activities can also be anything and everything, too! You can enjoy the traditions of autumn in October, but you’re still getting that flicker of summer and the slight hope of winter. It’s all kind of wrapped up in everything in the month of October, not to mention Halloween keeps the magic alive, too!

How can you find October Activities Near You?

Here’s the thing, there’s happenings going on all the time! I would first look online and google search events and activities going on around you or in your town. I would love also look in your local newspaper or local website. There are usually a bulleted list of activities right there for families.

I would love check out local bloggers and Instagrammers for some additional information, too. I know in our state I love checking in on hyper-local parenting websites to see what kinds of things and happenings are going on around. I especially love cheap things to do with my near me, too! The great thing too is that there are usually Halloween Activities going on throughout the months, too.

Let me know what YOU do in the Fall when it comes to October Activities! I know it varies from place to place. I imagine in Florida you don’t get Fall Foilage! So what do you do? Are there some fall traditions that you look forward to and make sure you do with your family? I’d love to know!
