Happy Halloween! It’s dress up day at school and every year I make my own costume (usually something to go with a story my students like). This year I changed it up a little as my 4 year old students have been having all kinds of fun with dominoes… counting, matching, and practicing some beginning addition skills. I thought I’d surprise them with my costume and some fun treats.
My costume was super easy to pull together with the help of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. They work great for adhering dies and also stick to fun foam cut with the Circle Framelits. I adhered the adhesive sheet to the foam then ran it through the Big Shot to cut out my circles. Then it was just peel & stick! Great for a quick & easy last minute costume! The candy treats were just as easy (especially when you get your students to punch the circles with a hole punch during Center Time the day before….great activity for fine motor skill development!!!) I cut Basic Black cardstock and wrapped it around mini Hershey candy bars and adhered with Fast Fuse on the back. Then I added the circles with Glue Dots for some quick & easy treats that tie in a little math skills too! These candy treats are great for older kids too as you could have them practice their multiplication skills. Here’s a fun & educational book for kids. It’s available at Amazon and would be a great gift idea for Christmas along with the game. We played Dominoes with our kids every night after dinner for years! Fun family time!

Jeanie, You are amazing and so very clever! Who would have thought of adhesive sheets and fun foam for a great halloween costume! Brilliant! And I love the gourd man next to you!

You are the best – I had to laugh at you getting them to punch out the holes! Love your hole, I mean, whole theme and costume. Just too funny! Talk about creative – you nailed it!
Jeanie I love so many of your cards but am unable to PIN them. Can you tell me how to PIN your cards? thanks
