2.) Heat Laminate All 5 Sheets
Use a heat laminating machine to laminate all five of the sheets. Heat laminating pouches & sheets will allow you to keep the patterns from year to year. If you will just be using the patterns for one year, feel free to slip each individual sheet into a page protector.
3.) CUT THE CARDS APART
I like to cut the cards apart so that a couple children can work on them at the same time during center time. If you have one child working on the numbered cards, you can leave them as full sheets as pictured below.

- The candy pieces are always cheap after Halloween. You can normally pick up bags for a quarter a piece a few days after the holiday.
