2013. make + take: skeleton sam.
materials: white foam sheet, black foam sheet, tacky glue, scissors, sharpie pen
our halloween budget is very small; we buy a few pumpkins and candy. growing up, my mom bought even less. but one thing hasn’t changed— i make my own decorations.
i created the skeleton with leftover foam from another project. i cut a rectangle for his body and then quickly cut some bones. with a few dab of tacky glue, he was done! i named him sam.
in my classroom, i have the same activity in the art station except the kids use extra pieces of construction paper. they’re allowed to make their own skeletons by cutting and gluing whatever and however they like. it’s a fun activity that gets them in the mood for halloween and supports scissor and art skills.
make a skeleton sam (or a skeleton sally) of your own. happy halloween!
