Celebrate Every Day in October!

National Go On A Field Trip Month

Go somewhere local or take a virtual trip to a museum or national park. Have a conversation about where you have gone, where you would like to go, and why you’d want to go there.

Positive Attitude Month

Draw a “mood feeling” picture. Describe your own drawing to a group, then discuss how everyone feels during specific situations.

Celebrate for a whole week!

The week of October 3-9 is Get Organized Week as well as International Postcard Week and National Carry A Tune Week.

National Oatmeal Day

On October 29th, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating National Oatmeal Day! Oatmeal is a healthy grain with lots of soluble fiber, making it a great choice for breakfast or even a snack! There are many other ways to enjoy oats, including muesli, oatmeal muffins, overnight oatmeal, and oatmeal cookies.

Gluten-free? No problem—just look for oats that are marked as gluten-free, to ensure they are handled properly when processed and tested.
