a wonderful craft for children to make this Halloween! The
best thing is, there are not many supplies needed at all, and most
likely they are in your house right now. A child may need some help
from an adult to cut the Q-tips in half, as some of them can be a
little tough to cut through.
- 18 Q-tips
cardstock or construction paper
- White paper
- White glue
Begin by gluing 6 whole Q-tips on the black cardstock for the
2. Glue 1
perpendicular over the ribs to act as the backbone. Have the Q-tip lie
flush with the last rib, but poke up longer than the top rib, to act as
the neck bone.
3. Draw a
skull on the white paper with a black marker, and cut it out.
4. Glue the skull on the
paper above and touching the neck bone.
5. Glue 4
whole Q-tips for the arm joints and leg joints, as shown in the
finished photo below.
Cut 6 whole Q-tips in
half, or make them even shorter if you like (like I did). These are
smaller bones that can be used as the 10 fingers, and 2 to be the feet.
Glue them in place.
