Have a spooktacular time learning about the human body with this interactive Halloween activity. Set up is quick and easy, and best of all it’s practically FREE! Create this skeleton out our of repurposed packing materials and learn body parts in Chinese.

We love playing dress up and have an extensive costume collection for the kids. Sadly my own costume collection was sacrificed when we moved into a smaller apartment. I spent many nights sewing until the morning hours. Now I can share my passion to create with my son and daughter. I love that my little one thinks a sleep mask turns her into a superhero! Also that she chooses a construction vest or fireman uniform over a princess dress. She’s so funny!

Skeleton Decoration Instructions

As much as I try to buy locally there are many times I need to order online. It pains me to think I’d add to the trash problem we are now facing. I usually save what I can but often I end up with a pile of cardboard and paper that sit around for longer than I can stand. This project re-purposes some of the packing paper.

My son and I traced my daughter’s shape on the brown Kraft paper. We did the same on white packing paper which we’ll use for the bones.

Using the outline drawn on the white paper, draw the skeleton parts and cut them out. On the brown Kraft paper outline, I wrote the respective Chinese characters. I chose simple characters like 頭,心,大腿,腳 (head, heart, thigh, foot). If your children are more advanced you can use the skull, rib cage, femur, etc. We just aren’t there yet.

Glue the top portion of the skeleton parts to the background, creating a flap. For the thigh bone, I created a tab to secure the top of the paper. That’s it, your skeleton decoration is not ready for your wall or window.
