Hallowe’en match up

Halloween Match up: make a spooky matching game patterned paper:

Here’s a great little matching activity.  I’m pretty sure I had as much fun making it as the Hooligans had playing with it.

Little Family Fun was the inspiration behind this one.  

As I’ve mentioned before, I have this awesome stash of Wallpaper sample books, that my local Benjamin Moore store was happy to donate to our daycare, instead of throwing them in the trash.  I can’t tell you how much I LOVE having these books to go to, when I need some groovy paper!  I love the colours, the patterns, and the textures.  Some pages are puffy and thick, some are slick, or bumpy or glossy.  And I love that there’s a colour/pattern/texture that is just perfect for almost anything I want to make!

I chose 4 simple Hallowe’en/Fall shapes to use for this activity:  Pumpkins (which kind of look like apples, but hey, apples work for fall too), bats, owls, and fall leaves.

I don’t think there’s really any need for instructions here.  The pictures kind of say it all.

How cute are these?  The Hooligans this activity.  LOVED it.   Big hit.  So simple, and I can see doing this anytime a new holiday rolls around.  Just think of all the Christmas shapes there are to choose from!

Yours in play, Jackie from Happy Hooligans
