Bone-ified Skeleton Craft For Preschoolers


 We love to study bones! What could be more exciting than understanding the bones we have in our own bodies! This craft was actually something I saw the preschoolers doing on their own with Q-Tips. We took the idea and ran with it!

How to Make a Bone-ified Skeleton Craft!
Materials: Picture of the human skeleton (Kids love to learn the names of the bones), black construction paper, white chalk, glue, Q-Tips, a picture of the child's face, scissors (optional)
Procedure: After naming the bones with the children have them construct their own skeletons. Glue on the face and add the Q-Tips for the bones. Kids love to cut the Q-Tips with scissors and love to get very detailed! Be sure to have them write their name with the chalk.
Extensions: If you have any holiday stickers it really adds a finished look to their work!

Hi Ms. Jessi,
There really is something about making it personal with a photo! Genuine photos are great but sometimes we simply use xerox copies and blow them up a bit. The preschoolers don't always like taking photos.
Xerox copies work just as great!
