Arts & Crafts Fun – Halloween Skeleton

Creating a Halloween Skeleton is a great way of extending the learning about Halloween and using alternative material to create art work. It will help to develop hand-eye coordination and concentration.

What you will need:

  • White and Black Paper
  • A black marker
  • Glue
  • Safety Scissors
  • Cotton bud sticks
  • White chalk or pencil
  • Small paint brush


  • On a piece of white paper draw a skeleton face and cut it out.
  • Next draw the body of a Skelton (as shown in the picture below) with a white pencil or piece of chalk.
  • Then take your glue and using a small paint brush or the nozzle on the glue top, apply glue to all the lines.
  • Then stick on the cotton buds using two for each leg and arm, one for the body, four across the body to make the ribs, a half a cotton bud for each foot and four halves for each hand to create the fingers.
  • Finally stick the skeleton head you cut out at the top of the body.

Have fun with this experiment and adult supervision at all times.
