Pasta Skeleton Craft – Pinned it, Did it!

When I saw this skeleton idea on Pinterest I just knew I had to do it with my girls.  What a fun way to teach them about the bones of the body and celebrate Halloween!

I did some Googling and figured out you could be as crazy detailed as you want, or as simple as you want.  We chose to be fairly simple but Nutty wanted a little more detail than Tottie did.

  • Different kinds of pasta
  • Paper
  • Glue

That’s it!  I’d tell you the exact kinds of pasta you need but that is really dependent on how detailed you want to get.  We used Penne, small elbow, medium shells, and thin spaghetti.

Both girls had fun making these skeletons and Nutty had fun “adding more bones” than Tottie had.  She learned about the tibia, fibula, ulna, and radius that Tottie did not put in her skeleton.

All-in-all I’d say that this Pinned it, Did it! was a success as it got my girls interested in learning more about our bones.

What have you made with pasta with your kids?


  1. My daughter, Alea, would LOVE this! I’m always looking for crafts her and I can do together and this one looks like so much fun. Especially with Halloween right around the corner!

  2. How cute is that!!! Love that!
