Here is a really spooky, out of the box idea to help decorate your house for Halloween!
Here are the materials you need for this craft:
– Black RoseArt Broadline Marker
– Black RoseArt Poster Paint
– RoseArt Paint Brushes
– White poster paper
– Painters Tape
For this craft, you can make your skeleton as big or as small as you’d like. One option is to trace your child onto butcher paper for the outline of your skeleton. I don’t have that much wall space, so I opted for a smaller skeleton – but it’s of course your choice!
Once the outline is done, use your painter’s tape to represent the bones of your skeleton. To fit the scale of the skeleton, I cut the painter’s tape in half and carefully applied the tape to showcase all of the bones. To make it more precise, you can always use an X-acto knife to cut out the eyes and nose on the skull as well as the fingers. Have fun with it, but please be careful!
Not only is this a fun exercise, but it is a great learning tool as well. And don’t worry, if you need a little refresher on where the bones go you can always check online!
Take your Black RoseArt Poster Paint and Paint Brushes and paint over the entire skeleton.
Allow the paint to dry and the carefully pull the tape off of the skeleton. Be careful! The tape is a little tricky to get off!
And there is your skeleton painting! You can hang on your walls or windows to get more in the Halloween spirit.
Enjoy and be safe this Halloween!
