How much do we love October? Sure, Howl-o-ween is just one day but that doesn’t stop us celebrating it for the whole month, right? ? If Howloween is not your thing, there’s plenty of other themes to have fun with this month.

Let’s play…

October 2017 #DDUpawtographaday

Daily Themes and Creativity Prompts

01 ::  VEGGIES  today is World Vegetarian Day. Today is the day you can make a difference to a healthier and more responsible way of eating. Any meat-free meal you have makes a big impact. Go Vegetarian for the day, the week or the month and share a photo of your veg!  ?

02 :: FARM following from World Vegetarian Day, today is World Farm Animals Day? We know it can be a little sad to think about large-scale farming, so perhaps instead you can share a photo to create awareness for the need to treat all animals with respect. ?

03 :: BOYFRIEND do you have a BF stealing your kisses? Maybe there is a boy you’ve been too shy to say hello to? Well, today is the day to celebrate the boys – it’s Boyfriend Day ?

04:: ANIMAL it’s World Animal Day! Share a photo of you and your favourite animal. ?
