Dancing Skeletons – Cotton Bud Skeletons
Dancing Cotton Bud Skeletons – a great preschool Halloween and/or Science activity!
If you follow us on Facebook then you may have seen this activity on our page last week! It is a super easy activity but lots of fun and really effective. I have used this in school both for Halloween and science!
What you need:
– white cotton buds or straws
– black paper or card
– pva glue or any child friendly glue
– white chalk
– googly eyes (optional)
What to do:
– draw an upside down triangle to skull shape with the white chalk
– using the cotton buds start to create a skeleton shape
– glue in place
– cut the cotton buds to size if necessary (ribs, feet, hands etc)
– add googly eyes for a little fun!
– arrange the limbs in various positions to create dancing skeletons.
Have fun, be creative!
This is so precious and those little skeletons made me smile a little. I will definitely have to try this with my daughter when she gets a bit older! Thank you for sharing 🙂

My little boy asked to do this the other day too. Yours look amazing.
Thank you! We had a lot of fun with this. I love that it’s really simple but really effective, my little boy thoroughly enjoyed it and has been creating all sorts of skeletal things since including jelly fish which I’m pretty sure don’t have skeletons lol !
What a fun idea! I pinned this!
Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!
