|Skeleton by Mia, Age 3 1/2|
- Draw skeleton onto black construction paper using a pencil or white crayon.
- 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.
- 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.
