Tuesday Tradition #46 - Homemade Halloween Fun!

Somewhere a long time ago, a few city and states ago, I was over at a friends house for a little Halloween party. Sometimes entertaining 3 and 4 yr. olds can be quite a task. But she pulled out this adorable homemade Halloween memory game and the kids played it for over an hour!

Take Halloween pictures from the past years, as far back as you want, and print out 2 - 2x2 squares of each picture. Mount them on card stock, Halloween style if you want, and cut those out into squares. You should have 2 of every picture. That's it!

Place the squares picture side down, in nice even rows, and take turns picking 2 cards at a time while trying to make a match. Whoever has the most pairs at the end of the game, WINS! My little ones LOVE this game. I'm putting together my family's Halloween Memory game today and I'm sure we'll get lots of use out of this easy, cheap, homemade game!

Enjoy!

Now, that's a clever idea. I will have to remember that one. So far, we've only celebrated a few Halloweens, but I can imagine how much fun it will be to reminisce in a few years.

Tara -
Cute idea!

Hey, just was trying to hook up to your Cherish Bound page and the link doesn't work. I want to see your page - is there a way to get to it?

Hi. Very interesting idea. We don't celebrate Halloween now in such way like when children were small. But I remember that we had a lot of fun when children were making costumes and I was helping them. They had always home made costumes. They favorite one was zombie costume made from old white shirts painted with red color. However, there was a lot of mess after but we had fun.

Take care,
Ella

I stumbled over your creative blog and I love it.
This is an idea that can be adapted to other family traditions.
By the way family traditions are a huge love of mine.
Thanks for sharing
God Bless

As one of the flagship watch lines, Breitling is designed for pilots. Thus, Bentley Motors T functions have a close relationship with the pilots. Navitimer Watches are recognizable for the built-in slide rule which can be used to calculate the speed or elapse the time and distance. Among so many models of Navitimer World series, the Montbrillant is considered one that is not so familiar to the public.


Coach bags here are made out of the finest leather known to man and are therefore one above the rest. If we take the quality bit into consideration, then a Coach Gallery is very durable and is often considered a one time investment. So, over here, you are actually investing in Coach Hamptons that could well last you a lifetime. When durability is a question, we need not worry for the mattress in this Coach Legacy scores a hundred percent in that.

In case you are not really familiar with a DESIGNING WOMEN to AVI converter then you can opt for the video tutorial which will explain to you in stages what you need to do at every step. Why not try DESIGNING WOMEN DVD for free before you buy it. The benefits that will come your way are that it is free, fully functional and can convert up to 70%. DESIGNING WOMEN DVD COLLECTION size is only 10m. You will love to hear this that it comes to you with a guarantee of 30 days wherein if you are not satisfied with it you can get your full money refunded with no questions asked.
