So here we go this Simple Halloween Skeleton Craft for Toddlers and older kids to make.

Halloween Skeletons to Make with your Toddler

This craft was first done back in 2012 with T when she was just 1. The pictures at the time which you can see her doing were taken on my phone! So to produce this post for now she’s helped and has recreated the craft as a 7-year-old with much easier to follow pictures. Thanks T!
