File-Folder Games: Wall Borders

Here is another fun, easy & inexpensive way to make your own file-folder games for your kids: 
Use Wall-Borders!

What are Wall-Borders? They are the things that school teachers use to put around their bulletin boards. I found mine at the Dollar Store, but if you can't find any there, you can definitely find them at a Teacher Store. They look like this:


  • File Folders
  • Wall-Borders - try to find ones that have several pictures of different kinds of things, like the ones above.
  • Scissors
  • Glue or double-stick tape

Here's what you do:
  1. Take 2 wall-borders and cut each picture off of the strip.
  2. Glue or tape one set onto the file folder, and leave the other set for matching.
You are ALL DONE!

Here are a few we've made:
