The cotton bud skeleton was also an old craft we did with 2-and-a-half-year-old E. She needed a lot of help at that time, but now, when we created it again she did everything all by herself.
She did the cutting of the cotton bud sticks, did the gluing and she even cut the big blue construction paper half perfectly straight (without a helping line).
Everything started with the huge skeleton puzzle we put together. We added white bottle tops as joints.
And then came the cotton bud skeletons. We left L. out of this project as she still likes to put tiny things in her mouth.
So here is how we made the dancing skeletons. Of course, we revised the different bones in our body. Make sure you notice the doble bones in the lower arm, and the lower leg. e. was very accurate to make it right as on the skeleton pyjamas they’re just single bones, which is WRONG.
And here are our skeletons. The dancing bones.
