What You Need:

  • Construction paper (white and black)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold the white paper in half and cut along the fold line.
  2. Ask him to fold both pieces of white paper three times each.
  3. Encourage him to draw a dog bone shape on the top of each piece of paper. His bone should be about 1" - 1.5" in length.
  4. Keeping both pieces of paper folded, have him cut out each bone. He should end up with 16 bones total.
  5. Starting with the base of the skeleton, have him tear one bone in half and place it where the feet of the skeleton will go.
  6. Ask him to build the skeleton from the bottom up, moving the position of the bones as he goes. There should be two bones in each leg, four bones making up the torso, one bone for each shoulder, and two bones for each arm.
  7. Have him draw a skull for the skeletons head and two hands. Cut them out and glue them in place.

Imagine what your super funky skeleton would look like if he came to life and started dancing around!
