Halloween Matching & Memory

The game of Memory is as old as rocks (well maybe not that old, but close). Even still, it is just as fun for today’s kids as it was all those many years ago.

We made our own Halloween themed version with a sheet of foam and some Halloween foam shape stickers. It was easier than saying, “Trick-or-Treat!”

First, I selected foam shapes that I wanted to use for this project, making sure I had two of each shape so a matching pair could be found. Then, I cut the foam sheet into strips that were wide enough to easily fit the largest foam sticker. After measuring again (you know the old saying, “measure twice, cut once.”), I cut the strips into squares. Last, I placed a sticker in the center of each foam square. And… TADA! I was done!

While Memory is a fun game for a pre-schooler, a toddler may not be quite ready for the structure. Instead, we just played a Matching game (another “as old as rocks” game). For the Matching game, we place all the cards on the table face up. After one is selected, the goal is to find the matching shape.

Have a great time learning this fall!
