I grew up on Pac-Man and all the games that followed: Donkey Kong, Centipede, etc. It’s hard not to look back with a touch of nostalgia for the simpler, pixelated days of my youth!
What makes Pac-Man such a great game? For one, the strong graphical appeal. The little yellow Pac-Man and the colorful ghosts. And the fact that the game has no ending! A little bit like Tic-Tac-Toe—in fact, the two games have many similarities. You can play for hours without getting bored.
Halloween is the perfect occasion to combine the two games for epic, printable good times. Retell the glory days of Pac-Man as you make the game with your own children!
It’s a simple craft to make. You can use just about any material—I chose foam board and construction paper.
What You Need
- (1) 6″ x 6″ foam board
- (6) 3/4″ x 3/4″ foam board squares
- Black construction paper
- Craft knife
- White-out (optional)
Start to cut out of your foam board, one 6” x 6” square. Then six ¾” x ¾” ones. With your maker color in black three of your small squares. Set aside.
Optional: you can write BOO like its show on the picture. Use your maker for the white square and the white out for the black ones,
For the Pac Man, draw three circles out of your construction paper, cut them and makes a cut for the month.
For the Ghosts, draw three small ghost shapes and cut them. Set aside.
Still from your construction paper cut four 5” strips each. Glue them on your 6”x6” square.
Glue together your paper shapes (Pac Man + Ghosts) with your small squares foam board.
That is it, your new game is now ready for play!
