Peggy the peg Art Skeleton is made from sprung clothes pegs and a wooden spoon. Peggy s arms and legs all move at their joints because the peg limbs are joined on the inside with wool to make the peg art moveable. Peggy makes a great Halloween toy or a Halloween decoration to make your house look spookier on Halloween. To make Peggy the Peg Art Skeleton you will need... Wooden Sprung Pegs (dismantled and all the springs discarded except for 6. You may wish to use some pegs as clamps whilst the glue dries.) Wood Glue Wool or String Paint Skeletons Ribs The skeleton ribs are two peg halves joined together at the tapered ends and overlapping one another about the same distance as the spoon handle is wide. Make and sick 6 ribs to the wooden spoon handle. The bottom set of ribs should not stick out as far as the ribs above so make the overlap bigger on this rib. Make sure you leave the skeleton a neck and leave some of the bottom of the spoon handle available for the pelvis bone.

One way to decorate your driveway or walkway is to place pumpkin or skeleton luminaries. All you need is brown paper lunch bags orange or red spray paint sand and candles. Take the brown paper bag and cut out a skeleton face or a pumpkin face.
You can spray-paint the bags either orange or black or use the colors for alternately placed bags. Weigh down the bags with sand and place small tea candles or votive candles inside glass votive cups in the bags. You can place these creepy luminaries all along the walkway up to the front porch for a spooky effect. It is a great way to lead the trick-or-treaters towards the treats awaiting them. A glass luminary can be made by using simple glass canning jars. Cut out a skeleton face a ghost face or a pumpkin face on a sheet of paper. Tape the paper to the front of the jar and spray paint with either black or orange color. Place a candle inside the jar and light it up to give an eerie look to the house!

When a child visits an online Halloween coloring book and begins to indulge in the activities there it teaches them the value behind taking their time to ensure that they do a good job. It also helps them to learn the experience of accomplishment and a job well done. While this really may not seem like an educational benefit it really is. If all children valued the concept of hard work and dedication to the projects that they pursue or are assigned and learned to experience a sense of accomplishment within themselves on a regular basis the nation s literacy rates and standard testing scores would not be nearly as low. Children can also learn self-discipline by engaging in activities that involve coloring online and offline. They learn to stay at the task until it is done and this is very beneficial.
