There isn't an x-ray needed to see the bones in our milk jug skeleton. Last weekend we visited the Roper Mountain, a local science center, near us for a Halloween event. While at the Roper Mountain Science Center, we saw these wonderful milk jug skeletons. They looked so cool. I knew I just had to make this Halloween craft.

The hip section of the skeleton was cut out of the top third of the fifth milk.
The milk jug caps were then glued on the milk jug sections. When they had dried, I strung fishing line down through the head cap, then through the trunk section, and down through the hips. The fishing line allows the skeleton to rotate and move, but not swing wildly.
The arm and leg sections all got holes punched in them. Paper clips were threaded onto bones and they were attached to each other.
Did you create Halloween craft at your house?
