Spooky Skeletons

Sorry, I‘ve been busy with lost of Halloween/Fall projects!  But I’m excited to share some them with you. 

Yesterday the little one and I read Dem Bones by Bob Barner, a cute little book based on the song, “The foot bone’s connected to the . . .”  We actually got the book and book on CD from the library which was a lot of fun.


After reading the book we made our own skeletons out of Q-Tips.  (Yes, I know my skeletons only have four fingers and toes, they are a special mutated kind of skeletons, that’s what makes them spooky!) 

About 18 Q-Tips for each skeleton (22 if you plan on making five fingered and toed skeletons)
Elmer’s Glue
black cardstock/construction paper
white paper
googly eyes


{To Make}

Skeleton PartsGet supplies ready, cut Q-Tips, cut out skull, draw on details.

IMG_7671 I am going to frame mine and add them to my Halloween decor!  Hope you enjoy making your own Spooky Skeletons.
