3 Ways to Play Halloween Math Games with Beverage Stickers
As Halloween approaches, kids get excited about wearing costumes, trick-or-treating, and decorating at home or at school. Holiday themed beverage stickers are an easy addition to the table decorations. Before you apply the stickers to the refreshments, use them in fun math activities with your preschooler.

Beverage stickers can usually be found in a dollar store or department store. These ghoulish Halloween faces are perfect for Halloween activities. Since there was more than one of many of the faces, we decided to play a few games before using them for party decorations.
1. Go Fish
Place the stickers in a pile face down on the table like a pack of cards. Each player draws one 'card'. The first player asks the one next to him if he has a match. If he does, the pair is placed on the table and the play continues around the table. If there is no match, the first player draws (fishes) a 'card' and play continues with the next player.
2. Make a Graph
Distribute all the stickers to the players. The first player places a sticker on the table. The next player adds to it or places a different sticker next to it. Play continues until all the stickers are placed one on top of the other. Kids then count the number of stickers in each row.
3. Memory Game
Place pairs of stickers face down on the table. The first player turns over one sticker and then another. If the stickers are a match, the pair is removed from the game. If there is no match, stickers are turned over and the next player takes a turn.
These are popular games that can be played by kids of all ages. And you can play with one child or several children at a time.
After the games, decorate your cups with the stickers for a fun treat!
