How to Make Q-Tip Skeletons
Lay Out the Big Bones
Lay out the big bones of the skeleton before the small ones. This will ensure you have room for everything. Feel free to play around with the orientation of the bones.
Use your hands to snap the q-tips into smaller pieces. This is much easier than using scissors!
Glue the Bones Down
Apply the glue directly to the Q-Tip before putting it on the paper.
This makes it much less messy! Start by gluing down the big bones and then move the smaller ones.
Imperfection makes it cute so don’t get too caught up on being symmetrical or perfect.
Print off and Glue Skeleton Head
Using our free printable, print out the skeleton head and bow.
Color the bow and cut them both out. Using glue, attach the bow either to the head or make it a necktie.
Be sure to show kids their options!
