30 Days of Halloween 2014
It’s getting to be that time of year again… time to start thinking about the Holidays coming up.  Halloween is right around the corner!  Do you need some simple Halloween games for kids?  I know I will be helping in my son’s Halloween party at school and I love simple games to play with them.  This Halloween memory game is easy…. Print, Cut, Play.  Let’s do it!

I’ve made two different files for you to choose from.  Plain black and white pumpkins are perfect for printing on orange card stock.  The cute colored pumpkins would be perfect for printing on white card stock.

Be sure to print the file two times so that you have two of every pumpkin, creating 12 matches.  Trim off your margins first, then cut the pumpkins apart.  If you print on thin paper, you might need to attach the pumpkins to a thicker paper so that you can’t see the pumpkins through the paper.

To play – Mix all your cards up.  Place all your cards face down.  Take turns trying to find a match.

Halloween Shadow Puppets

Last year I blogged about THIS POST:

I just used my Halloween Cookie Cutters to trace and cut out Halloween Shapes.
This year, I did the same thing and then took it a step further.
I taped Popsicle sticks to the back of the shapes.
I also used an X-ACTO knife to cut a face into the pumpkin.
We took a flashlight into a dark bedroom and had some fun!
It was the perfect activity for a rainy fall day.

Quick Halloween Decor

My two year old and I wanted to decorate our house a little for Halloween.
So, we just used what we had around…
Halloween cookie cutters and some scrapbook paper.

I just traced the cookie cutter shapes and then cut them out.
(Not much my two year old could help with, but he was pretty entertained just watching what I was making.)

Fun.  Easy. Simple. Cute.
