It’s a little bit of a teaser having Halloween on a Monday… So if you’re looking to celebrate over the weekend, Designing Mom Julie of Lot 116
has a fun DIY for the little ones to try: Q tip skeletons.
* 21 Q-tips (or maybe a few more, since some kids like to make toes or extra pieces)
* Black card stock or construction paper
* White paper (construction paper works best)
* Black marker (and/or crayons)
* White glue
1. Draw and/or cut out a skull on the white paper, and then draw the face you would like with a black marker (or crayons if you want any color – see examples below).
2. Glue the skull to the very top of the black construction paper.
3. Glue 6 whole Q-tips (right under the skull) on the black cardstock for the skeleton’s ribs.
4. Glue 1 Q-tip 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.
5. Glue 8 whole Q-tips for the (4) arm joints and (4) leg joints, as shown in examples and drawings of the finished photos below.
6. Cut 5 whole Q-tips in half, or make them even shorter if you like (like I did – which looks a lot better). These are smaller bones that can be used as the 10 fingers. Cut 1 Q-tip cut in half (not smaller) for the feet. Glue them in place.
Supplies needed, and what they can make:
