Halloween is coming up fast! The Winkle has just the activity for your kids. Skeletons!
The Winkle Skeleton Bones project is perfect for teaching kids about science and anatomy. They also get the opportunity to be creative with colors and accessories they can add on to their skeleton. Every Winkle project has kid-friendly video instructions, meaning they can work independently and give parents some precious free time. The video instructions can be viewed here.
For an accompanying lesson about Bones and Joints, click here.
Kids will create a skeleton and learn about bones and joints. In the instructional video, we’ll talk about specific bones in parts of the body like the humerus, spine, and femur. There are so many bones to identify! Do you know how many bones are in the human body? What about in your foot? We talk about that too!
This isn’t any old skeleton craft. The Winkle skeleton bodies are proportionate – just like a real human skeleton! Your child will learn about proportions and symmetry in the body as they construct their skeleton.
The Skeleton Bones project is one of the four STEM activities featured in the October Winkle Crate. While you’re at it, check out our other October projects: the Robotic Hand, Pumpkin Chunkin Catapult, and Slime!
