I know, two posts in one day and they're pretty heavy on the photos too. But, Anne, you asked for more cute crafts and are these not the cutest skeletons you've ever seen? I had to get this out stat because it's timeliness will expire in three short days hence the two posts right on top of each other. Enough rambling, lets get to it.
You'll need black paper, white paper, cotton swabs (does anyone call them that or does everyone just call them Qtips?), a black marker or crayon and glue. Cut out small skull shaped heads from the white paper ahead of time and cut several cotton swabs in half. I cut four cotton swabs for each child. They also used five whole swabs too. You can then model it step by step as I did for the four preschoolers I had that day or just let them go at it. I started with having them make a face on the skull and glueing that down first. Make sure the skull is way up near the top. That way you know there will be enough room for the rest of the skeleton. I then moved on to the body, the arms, legs and finally hands, feet and ribs.
