Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
Cover the pelvis area in glue and stick the length of string from the leg to the pelvis so that the leg will hang from the middle of the pelvis bone. Then stick three peg halves on top of the pelvis. Tapered ends to meet the spoon handle and with the central peg sticking out a little further than the other pegs to give a more rounded look to the pelvis bone. Arts and crafts have always been popular activities with kids and when you take into consideration how popular Halloween is with kids. (well the cool kids anyway!) As such it is no surprise that activities that combine arts and crafts with the season of Halloween are greatly enjoyed and appreciated by kids of all ages. This is why making printable Halloween bingo cards is a lot of fun for children and it also has the ancillary effect of providing a unique learning experience as well. While may of these printable Halloween bingo cards come already made some of the bingo card sets on the market work is that kids create their own bingo cards either affixing ready made pictures to cards that are made up of either construction paper or even regular paper.
Make a number of such luminaries and line your walkway with them for the trick or treat night. Another arts and craft idea for Halloween is to drape your home with fun ghost or pumpkin garlands. These garlands are really easy to make. You require some white construction paper if you are making ghosts or orange construction paper if you are making pumpkins. Draw your ghost or pumpkin on the paper using a pencil or pen. Ensure that while drawing the figures you leave a tab on the top to fold while stringing the garland. Draw funny or scary faces on the figure using a black marker and then cut out the figures. To make your garland really long cut out many such figures. Place the string on the fold of the tab. Use staples glue or tape to secure the figures.
