We love creating simple Halloween Crafts with the toddlers here on Rainy Day Mum and these Mini Skeletons are ideal. They use a simple template and then you let your toddler get creative. Although this is ideal as a toddler craft my kids still love doing them at 7 and 9 and we use them to create Halloween decorations and banners for the house. So here we go this Simple Halloween Skeleton Craft for Toddlers and older kids to make.

How to create this simple skeleton craft with toddlers
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!

Use these skeletons to create a Halloween bunting for decoration or why not add letters or numbers to them to turn them into a learning activity.
Why not create your own DIY life-sized skeletons with the kids.
