Swab Skeletons

Make no bones about it: this is a spellbinding Halloween party craft! Cover a work area with plastic wrap, then set out cotton swabs, cotton balls, black paper, and glue. Using plenty of glue, your guests can build skeletons from the swabs, cutting them into different lengths as needed, then attach cotton ball skulls and black paper faces. When the glue is dry, the skeletons can be hung up with thread.


My kids love to decorate the house this time of year and this looked like a simple, fun, and inexpensive way to make everyone happy! Be sure to include decorations from your Au Pair’s home nation if at all possible to create a cultural celebration.
