What You Need:

  • dry pasta (elbows, spaghetti, spirals, bowties, shells, lasagna, etc.)
  • black construction paper
  • glue

What You Do:

  1. Begin laying out a pasta skeleton on the paper.

    • Small tube pasta pieces work well for the spine, while bits of lasagna noodles make super hipbones.

    • Spirals or spaghetti are great for arm and leg bones, while small shells are perfect for wrists and ankles.

    • Macaroni pasta is ideal for ribs and angel hair pasta pieces are all you need for hand and foot bones.

  2. Once you are pleased with the layout, then it is time to start gluing all of the pieces down in place.

  3. When you are finished, try creating more skeletons in different poses.
These make fabulous window decorations for Halloween night!

Did You Know:

There is a great deal of debate about who invented pasta. According to the Canadian Pasta Manufacturers Association, the Chinese are on record as having eaten pasta as early as 5,000 B.C. It is believed that Marco Polo probably brought pasta back to Italy with him from China in the thirteenth century A.D.

Halloween Fun: Great Things to Make and Do
by Abigail Willis
Halloween will certainly be fun when children design their own jack-o'-lanterns, make frightening masks, build hanging skeletons, play gruesome games, bake spider (or bat) cakes, and read scary poems aloud.
