Scaredy Squirrel's Halloween Safety Public Service Announcement

Hello, October! October, I'd like to think, is one of the best months of the year. Leaves change colour, scarves of all kinds are worn, turkeys (or tofurkeys) are devoured. But the best thing about October?


Putting on a costume and going trick-or-treating is always fun, but there are things that we need to do to make sure we have a safe night out. Luckily, Scaredy Squirrel's got us covered! Scaredy's got his top three tips for staying safe this Hallowe'en in this handy video:

Scaredy's also got some colouring activities to do before or after trick-or-treating. Check out his costumes and start colouring:

Literary Halloween Costumes for Children

Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means Hallowe'en is just around the corner. If you're stumped for ideas for your little ones, BookRiot has rounded up some awesome and adorable bookish costumes that might inspire you! My personal favourite is the Madeline-inspired ensemble costume pictured above -- how cute is Miss Clavel with her little students? And bonus points to these chic little Parisians for such an easy-to-create costume.

Check out more adorableness here. Beware the wild things.
