Dough Skeleton with Recipe

It’s time to start thinking about ghosts, goblins and of course skeletons. Set up your own army of skeletons with this Dough Skeleton with Recipe for the kids.


Tulip® 3D Fashion Paint
65317 Basic Black
FLM5-4 Pink Petunia
Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue®
Tulip® Soft Fabric Paint™
BI15794 Cool Blue
White bread, 6 slices
Ziptop plastic bag, large


Mix the bread with Tacky Glue (generally, use 1 Tablespoon of glue for each slice of bread).  For a nice smooth dough, be sure to scrape all the glue out of the spoon before refilling.  For larger amounts of dough, we recommend 1/4 cup to 4 slices of bread.  Knead until smooth.

If after 10 minutes the mixture is still too sticky, add more small pieces of bread. If it is too dry or stiff, add a few more drops of glue.

Place ball into plastic bag. Knead until smooth and pliable.

To color, add paint to dough or wait until dry and paint with paint.

If desired, color dough with Soft Fabric Paint.

Form skeleton using photo as a guide. Let dry.

Add buttons by squeezing a dot of Basic Black paint where desired. Lightly push buttons into wet paint so paint oozes through openings.

Add nose and mouth with Pink Petunia.
