Skeletons in the closet

Looking for a quick last minute Halloween decoration? How about a homemade skeleton. The girls and I put these together during Drew's nap the other day - don't they look cute!

To create one yourself you will need the following:
1 piece black paper
1 small piece of white paper cut into a "skull" shape
10-11 q-tips

First cut out the skull shape from the white paper and glue it to the top of your black piece of paper. Then cut the cotton ends off of 4 of the q-tips. Glue these horizontally below the skull head to form the "ribs". Next cut off one end of the cotton on 6 of the q-tips. Glue two protruding out from the rib cage to look like arms. The remaining 4 will be for the legs. The legs have two q-tips glued side by side below the rib cage. Once you finish the legs take the cut-off cotton ends and glue them on as hands and feet. Decorate the skull face and add any other embellishments you want to get your skeleton ready for Halloween. The girls had a blast with glitter glue and markers.
