Technical Specifications: 

Step One: Gather materials.

  • Printable Orange Pumpkin.
  • Green Pumpkin.
  • Black Pumpkin.
  • Yellow Pumpkin.
  • White Pumpkin.
  • Twister Board.
  • Card Stock.
  • Scissors.
  • Glue.
  • Tape.
  • Large White Poster or Paper.
  • Cardboard.
  • Brad Fastener.

Step Two: Print off colored pumpkins, or use the white template and print on colored paper. If the user is using the pumpkin layout, they'll need 16 orange, 5 black, 3 green and 4 yellow. 

Step Three: Roll out paper or poster on the floor, and tape around the edges to secure it to the ground.

Step Four: Cut out your pumpkins, and glue them to the poster in the user's desired layout.

Step Five: Print out the spinner board and cut out a piece of cardboard that’s the same size (8.5 x 11 inches). Glue the spinner board to the cardboard.

Step Six: Roll a piece of cardstock, about 4 inches long, and glue it closed so it makes a small tube. Cut out a triangle and glue it to the end, to make an arrow.

Step Seven: Attach the spinner to the board by cutting a hole through both the spinner and the board and attaching it with the brad fastener.

Step Eight: To play the game, spin to see which hand/foot goes where, and do what it says. Keep playing until someone falls. Whoever lasts the longest is the winner.

Organization Type: 

The Chaos and The Clurtter is a website/blog administered by Sharla Kostelyk, a mother of 5, with children with special needs. She shares her experience with some homemade sensory products and with her life. She says...

I want you to find happiness in the chaos and the clutter. As a disorganized, creative, scattered, homeschooling mother of seven, including five with Special Needs, I spent years feeling like I wasn’t measuring up to the “perfect” moms I knew.

I would walk around my house, stepping over toys, crunching a dry Cheerio underfoot, passing by a pile of papers, and trying to ignore the mountain of laundry that seemed to grow by the second, and I would feel like a failure. I felt overwhelmed and stressed out and sometimes was grouchy with my kids as a result, only adding to my feelings of guilt.

I tried every organizational system in the book, but mastered none. I was letting the best years with my children slip away and was determined that if I could not change the state of the house, at least I could change my attitude.


At The Chaos and The Clutter, I share with you some of my small victories. I am real. I tell the truth about the imperfect parent that I am. I hope that this will be a place where people can be their true “mismatched socks because there weren’t any clean ones” selves!

My everyday life is never ordinary. Most days, I still feel like I am drowning in the busyness! I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I will share anything that has helped me, anything that hasn’t, and the humorous moments in between.

Another type of clutter that I am trying to get rid of is financial clutter. There is just no happiness to be found there! We are trying to climb out of debt and I will also share those tips I learn along the way.

I hope that you will join me in trying to find the blessings and the joy in among the chaos and the clutter!
