Q Tip Skeleton Craft As Fun Halloween Art Or Cute X-ray Craft

Both my kiddos really enjoyed a lovely morning of making their very own q tip skeleton crafts. This craft is very easy for toddlers as well as big kids of all ages.

This q tip craft always comes out so beautiful and is totally adaptable! We did this activity as one of our Halloween crafts this year but it’s also perfect for any x-ray themed learning activity.

Check out this post for more ideas on how to celebrate Halloween all month long.

How to Make Q Tip Skeleton Crafts

Step 1: Decide what to make

Q tip skeleton crafts are a lot of fun but you have several options and scales on what you can make. You can make a full skeleton, though you may need a bigger space than a standard construction paper. You can make a q tip skeleton hand craft, like we did. Or you can even venture out into other x ray craft ideas by googling x ray images for inspiration.

For this craft, I printed out two different ideas for my kids to choose from, a full skeleton or a close up of hand. They both chose hand and loved it.

You can also outline your child’s hand or have them color it in with white crayon, pencil, or chalk.

Step 2: Gather and cut your Q Tips

For this q tip skeleton craft, you’ll need a bunch of q tips. And to make a q tip skeleton hand craft, you’ll need a variety of sizes. So, with some scissors and adult supervision, we cut some of our q tips in half and in thirds to make a variety of bone sizes.

Step 3: Assemble the Q Tip Skeleton Craft

Next, you can assemble the q tips into your chosen form, as a skeleton, hand, or other x ray. After you have your skeleton outlined, you can proceed with the glue. Remember, “dot, dot, not a lot.”

Mom hack: pour some school glue into a bowl and let your child apply it with a thin paintbrush. This hack was wonderful and perfect for less mess and more detailed gluing!

Step 4: Let it dry

Make sure you’ve glued all your pieces. You can gentle give your paper a shake to double check for any loose parts.

The last step is very important: let it dry! And once it’s all dry you’re done!
