Cute and Simple Halloween Games: Paint Chip Puzzles


Did your school ever throw a Halloween carnival packed with simple Halloween games for kids?

My elementary school threw one every year and I was always amazed with how creative the halloween games were.  My favorite games were the ghost lollipop hunt and the ghoulish cake walk!  While my kids aren’t in elementary school yet, my daughter and I had made some diy puzzles that she loved, so I decided to make a quick, Halloween version!

Although these Halloween games were for my daughter, there was a bonus:  my 18 month old loves visiting the hardware store!

The high ceilings, the tools, the huge amount of space…he just loves it all!  So, it’s easy for us to pick up a few paint chips while we go on our favorite “field trip” for the week.  Even though my  four-year-old  doesn’t love to visit the hardware store as much as her brother, she loves putting together these quick and easy paint chip puzzles.  We take them to restaurants  or use them as a  quite time play activity!

When we made these originally, my daughter drew a few of them herself.  This time, I drew the faces while she was napping so that she would have something fun for when she woke up!

How to Make Paint Chip Puzzles

Draw the faces on with a sharpie marker, then cut the puzzles in different ways.  I chose to cut the pumpkins into fourths – one pumpkin was cut with  vertical and horizontal lines and the other pumpkin was cut diagonally.  Then, I cut Frankenstein in half with a zig-zag line and the ghost into thirds with a wavy line.

I love sneaking in a little extra math!  🙂

Simple Halloween games. Make your own paint chip puzzles! These would be great in goodie bags.

Your kids can enjoy them at home or you can add them to some Halloween goodie bags for friends this year!  How cute would that be?!
