S'ghetti Skeletons

Craft idea from: /http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/halloween/pastaskeleton/

I used scissors to cut spaghetti and fettuccine for the fingers, toes, and spine.
Materials Needed:
  • black construction paper
  • glue (We used Aleene's Tacky Glue.)
  • different types of pasta  (spaghetti, fettuccine, spiral, tube, shell, macaroni, bow tie, wagon wheel, etc.)
  • dried beans (optional)
  • pencil or white crayon
  • scissors (optional)
Skeleton by Mia, Age 3 1/2
  1. Draw skeleton onto black construction paper using a pencil or white crayon.
  2. Lay out pasta or dried beans and arrange to form the skeleton. (Note: If you want your pasta to be white, put it in a zippered baggie with white paint, shake until pasta is covered with paint, remove coated pasta from bag, and allow to dry on wax paper.) You could use a wagon wheel for the head, dried beans for the pelvis, macaroni for the ribs, small shells for the knee caps/wrists/elbows, tube or spiral pasta for the arms and legs, spaghetti for the fingers and toes, or any other combination you come up with.
  3. When you are happy with the arrangement, glue pasta to the paper and allow to dry.
    Mia chose to use only bow tie pasta for this skeleton.
