Time: 1 hour
Effort: Easy - some sewing required
- Black sweatshirt with or without hood
- Black sweatpants
- Jointed cardboard skeleton decoration (choose size according to size of child)
- Needle and thread, safety pins, or tape
- White gloves
- Face paint
Instructions: Carefully take apart the cardboard skeleton decoration. Sew, pin, or tape each cardboard bone to the appropriate part of the body. Paint face to look like a skeleton or use the head part of the decoration as a mask. Just cut out holes for eyes, nose, and mouth. Attach string/thread to each side of decoration and tie to head. Wear white gloves as a finishing touch.
Variation: Draw a design of a skeleton on felt and cut out the "bones." Paint each bone with glow in the dark paint. Sew or glue the bones onto the sweat suit.
