Halloween Memory Card Game {Free Printable}

I have three kids that are home all day and they get bored really easily.  They are always wanting to play games with me, but right now we really don't have any age appropriate ones for them.  So I decided to make them one and it was a huge hit!  They loved it.    I'm thinking I'm going to have to do this for Christmas and Easter too!  
Halloween Memory Card Game
This is how I made the cards:
I got all of my fun Halloween clip art here.   

I printed off the shapes onto card stock, go here for a free printable.  I used a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper for the back of the card.  I only used 6 pairs, but in the printable there are 12 pairs.

I cut the shapes and paper into 3x4 inches rectangles.

Then I glued the paper onto the back of each shape.

Using my thermal laminater, I laminated the cards so they will last longer.

Then I just let the kids play.  The 6 pairs was perfect for my almost 3 year old.

I think I'll print out all 12 pairs and make it a little more challenging for my 4 year old.

We even used the cards for Go Fish too.  They had fun that's fun sure!

Adorable idea! I love this. I'm definitely going to use this game with my nieces and nephews. My baby girl would just tear or eat them.
