Look closely: students folded white paper in half, wrote their names in cursive, and cut out around their names - this formed the body. They added the head, arms,and legs then mounted their "name skeletons" on black construction paper! Notice that the top left name is NOELLE. :) Love it!

Kids' Art Projects

Pasta Skeletons With an illustration of a skeleton as a guide, kids just need lots of dried pasta, white glue, and construction paper to assemble the pictures. We snapped some of the pasta in half and used alphabet-soup noodles to make labels.

Cute door decor.mummy. How fun for kids to wake up to this outside their door one October morning! Think on how to do with scrap paper so as not to waste.
