What you need:
Black and white construction paper
Black marker or crayon
How to make it:
1) Fold a piece of construction
paper in half with the short ends touching. Place the card
down with the fold to the left.
2) Using the scissors,
cut about an inch off of each end of two Q-Tips.
3) Draw and cut out a
skeleton head. Draw the eyes, nose holes and mouth with the
black marker or crayon. Glue the head onto the front of the
black construction paper card.
4) Glue the remaining
full-size Q-Tips to form the body, arms and legs of the skeleton,
as seen in the picture. Glue the shorter Q-Tip ends on the
ends of the arms and feet. Allow to dry completely.
5) You can use the white
crayon or glue and glitter to write a Halloween greeting on
the front and inside. You can also use the crayon to create
a spooky picture around the skeleton.
