October can be so fun for the kiddos AND the parents! Planning the costume, dreaming up creative sweet treats, decorating the house and of course, trick or treating!
If you are wondering what kind of activities there are around the Polk County area, a fantastic site to keep handy is http://lakelandmom.com/calendar/
For costume ideas, we are all about homemade costumes this year! How about a favorite sports player, a bearded lumberjack, play jewelry a fluffy dress and a crown for the princess, or an old sheet for a ghost! Witch-ever one you choose, you can find help with your creative side by checking out your local thrift shops!
