Pasta Skeleton

Halloween Skeleton Made of Pasta

Uses: This can be a fun Halloween project to decorate with or it can be a great educational activity to learn about the different bones in the body.


  • various types of dried pasta (spaghetti, macaroni, penne, rotini, wagon wheels, shells, etc.)
  • construction paper
  • glue
  • crayons
  • pencil

Procedure/What to do:

  • Draw a stick figure of a person on the paper just so you have the size of skeleton that you want.
  • Arrange the various types of dried pasta on the skeleton outline. Do not use glue yet so that you can change the pieces around if you wish to do so.
  • Once like how your pieces look, glue them into place.
  • If you are doing this as an educational activity, use the crayons to label specific bone structures of the body.
