Halloween games with beverage stickers
The ghoulish faces on these stickers are perfect for Halloween themed activities.
We decided to play a few math games with the ones we didn't need for party decorations.
The stickers can be applied to a cardboard base and sealed with clear contact paper to make them more durable. If you don't remove the adhesive backing you can always use them on drinking glasses later.
Here are a few ideas for card games using the beverage stickers.
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 matching sticker. If he does, the pair is placed on the table and the players each draw another card. If there is no match, the first player draws (fishes) a 'card' and play continues with the next player. Play continues around the table.
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 matching 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 player removes them from the game and places them in a pile in front of him. 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, with one child or several children at a time.
After the games, decorate your cups with the stickers and enjoy a holiday refreshment!
If you don't have the self-adhesive beverage stickers you can always make a set of Halloween cards using cardstock and a black marker. Kids can color the features with crayons or markers for a fun art activity.
Adding a Halloween twist to traditional games is fun for kids! See if you can come with other card games to play with the kids.
