Your pattern could be simple alternating patterns or more complicated ones that involve 3 or more colors or shapes. You might also like to add a border of washi tape to finish your game.

2. Next ask your child to finish the patterns with their stickers. We used small square stickers, simply because that’s what we had on hand. You could use sticker dots or even paints and Q-tips to finish the patterns.

Monster Scissor Skills

I love Halloween crafts so much! I think that one of the main reasons why they are so fun is that you get to use googly eyes – lots of them. Googly eyes make your monsters, ghosts and ghouls look Halloween spooky, but also kind of cute. If you don’t have googly eyes at home for your Halloween crafts, then this FREE printable worksheet might be perfect for you.
