We're back with a list of ten cool things to do in October... how many will you be able to tick off YOUR list?

1: Look for fallen leaves and make a list of all the different colours you see! And don't forget that if you catch one, you get to make a wish!

2: Pick some wild blackberries and make a pie or crumble... or just eat them fresh with cream! Will you eat more than you gather?

3: Get together with a friend and try out some cool Hallowe'en facepaint ideas! Check out CHOCOLATE BOX SECRETS for lots of good ideas and inspirations, plus some cool costume ideas!

4: Pick some autumn branches with berries, hips and red-gold foliage! A surprise bouquet for your mum, maybe?

5: Go old-school and have a game of conkers with a little brother or sister!

6: Make toffee apples... and then eat toffee apples... yum!

7: Get in the mood for Hallowe'en with a horror movie sleepover.... WAAAAH!!!!!

8: Carve a pumpkin... but try something different from the usual Jack o' Lantern design. See how creative and imaginative you can be!

9: Exchange ghost stories with your friends... or get creative and write a fictional one!

10: Re-read MARSHMALLOW SKYE and re-live Hallowe'en - Tanglewood style!
