I told you I had more matching games lined up for you, and here’s one with a super cute Halloween theme: Halloween Baby Costumes Matching Game for Toddlers. Two-year-old N really liked the images and kept giggling at the babies 🙂 He’s a big fan of matching games, anyway, but he wanted to play this one in particular over and over.
(N was 2 years and 3 months old.)

Materials for Halloween Baby Costumes Matching Game for Toddlers
- Pdf file (download below).
- Laminating pouches.
- Two sheets of paper. We don’t play with cards face down yet, so for us, it’s not as important not to have the images show through in the back as with regular memory games for older kids. I still prefer to use heavy paper for better durability with my wild little guy.
- Paper cutter or scissors.
What’s in the Printable PDF File?
There’s one page with six babies in Halloween costumes in the printable pdf file. You need to print this page twice, laminate both copies, and cut one or both copies apart at the black lines.
Baby costumes used are bat, Frankenstein, pig, pumpkin, spider, and tiger.
We play with one copy of the page intact on the table, and N picks up the individual cards one by one, usually excitedly points out where they go, and places them on the matching image. We talk about the images, the colors, the animals represented in the costumes, etc. I also make a point of using positional words like next to, to the right, above, etc.
