Skeleton Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Easy - some sewing required

Materials:

  • 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.
