|Candy corn and skeleton Art|
We've been working on some cool art projects for our Halloween Bulletin Board. We did some tissue paper CANDY CORN. The kids designed their own piece of corn, then I cut out 2 inch squares of tissue paper in yellow, orange and white. Then they twisted them on their pencil eraser tops and glued them down in rows. They turn out fluffy and pretty.
Then our whole 2nd grade makes these cute SKELETONS. We finished the candy corn last week and finished the Skeletons this week during art. So Here's how to do the skeletons.
Cut 1 x 18 strips of black and white 8 of each color for each child. Then glue 2 whites together at the ends and 2 blacks together at the ends to make 4 long of each color. Then glue the white top edge to the black top edge at a 90 degree angle, like the picture below.

We did a fun science matching the bone names to the picture of the skeleton parts of the body. It was fun!
Then they made the body with 18 x 2 1/2 inch strips, just 1 white and 1 black. You can see some kids doubled it and their body (belly section) is longer. We all decided the shorter looks better. Lastly we cut out heads, hands and feet that we had copied and glued them to the body. We added a brad to the head and connected it to the body so it could swivel around. Kids loved that part, as you can imagine.
