October has been a fairly good month. We've had a few fun days out during half term, watched Halloween films and done some Halloween crafts too. 

Films and Series

We've watched quite a few films this month and been making our way through some of the Halloween/Spooky films mentioned here.

There are also some great films and shows I've watched that have recently come out on Netflix too:

- American Murder: The Family Next Door

- The Haunting of Bly Manor 

- Slender Man 

- Hubie Halloween 

- Rebecca 

Whisby Animal Park

Whisby is one of our favourite places to go especially when family are up to visit. We headed there this month to pick a pumpkin and use the play facilities that were open.

Shepards Place Farm
This month we also headed to a nearby farm to enjoy some fresh air, spotting animals and a bit of soft play. It was lovely to visit a place new to us and we will definitely go again.

Halloween Crafts

Rock painting
This was an activity I had planned to do with Blake but he unfortunately had no interest and so I ended up doing them on my own. I did 3 different designs and my favourite has to be this Mummy one pictured below.

Pumpkin Painting
As Blake wasn't interested in the rock painting I thought a simple pumpkin painting would be best so I drew a pumpkin and let him paint it.

Mummy Jar Tea Light Holder 

We have plenty of empty glass jars so decided to use one to make this fun mummy tea light holder. All we needed other than the jar is glue, a bandage and googly eyes. 

Chocolate Orange 
I've been loving Chocolate Orange this month especially the Giant Chocolate Orange buttons from Cadbury and the Chocolate Orange fingers. 

Cinnamon Swirls 
We made cinnamon swirls the other week. We did use  jus rol ones but they were delicious and would definitely next time want to have a go from scratch.
