Books for October! Here are some great Halloween suggestions!

A MISCHIEF OF MONSTERS by Roger Priddy: Join different monsters as they play together—making silly noises and actions for children to copy.
This is such a cute book that is perfect for younger children ages 2-4.
Looking for a book for children a little older? This one is sure to be a hit! SCARY STORIES FOR YOUNG FOXES by Christian McKay Heidicker, illustrated by Junyi Wu: Debut author Christian McKay Heidicker draws inspiration from Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft, and Edgar Allen Poe for this thrilling portrait of survival and unforgettable tale of friendship.
I love this next one! It would make the perfect Halloween gift for young children! WIPE CLEAN ACTIVITIES: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN by Roger Priddy: SPOOKY HALLOWEEN is packed with fun puzzles to complete, bewitching games to play, monstrous pictures to doodle, and has plenty for kids to do this Halloween.
This last one is perfect for back-to-school time for those in grades 3-5. CODE THIS GAME by Meg Ray, Illustrated by Keith Zoo: CODE THIS GAME! teaches kids to build a strategy action game called “Attack of the Vampire Pizzas!” where the player must prevent tomato-sauce-eating vampire pizzas from getting into delivery boxes.

Look for all of these books this month!

Self Disclosure: I received free copies of the above books. Images were also provided. I only feature books that I highly recommend.

Back-to-School Organization + Personalization Giveaway that you don’t want to miss!

The school year started a little while ago but I am still trying my best to get organized! I have teamed up with DAP, for a giveaway you won’t want to miss! This amazing prize package will definitely help you get organized quickly for the school year!

Heading into the back-to-school season, DAP is offering one of our readers a “Back-to-School Organization + Personalization prize package” to help parents create an organized hub within their home with supplies to help them tackle the season and get back into their school year routine with ease. Including DAP samples, supplies for one simple DIY project and fun, valuable back-to-school survival items, this is the ultimate parent gift basket to start the new school year organized, and ready to tackle school projects and busy schedules with style.

My favorite is the Brother P-Touch Cube Smart Bluetooth Label Maker! I had the opportunity to receive my own package and I am having so much fun with this Label Maker!

Here is one great DIY idea from DAP:

Locker door décor

Take a school locker from drab to fab by using DAP RapidFuse All-Purpose Adhesive to glue magnets to the back of mirrors, pen cups, clothespins or other decorative objects for cute and practical locker door décor that can be hung without damaging the locker. RapidFuse is water resistant and more durable than typical super glues, making it the best option for the job. Bonus project: to create a locker chandelier, start with an inexpensive push light (found at hardware stores) and adhere decorative ribbons or gem stones to the outside rim of the light.
