Trash Bag Skeleton Costume

The ghosts, goblins and skeletons are assembling for All Hallows Eve. The kids will have a lot of fun making this Skeleton costume and it won’t cost you a fortune either.

Lay out the bag with the opening at the bottom. Cut a hole in the top for the head and one in either side for the arms.

With chalk, draw on the shape of a skeleton.

Cover the chalk lines with the white tape. Tip: to do curves with the tape cut lots of small pieces and overlap them to create a small bit of curve at a time.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
