Fun Pasta Skeleton – Halloween

Pasta Skeleton

Skeletons are an iconic Halloween figure and so easy to make and share.

Here is my fun, cartoon style pasta skeleton.

Fun food for children Halloween



– Pasta – I used wholemeal penne and spirals (I wanted to call them a flashy Italian name but they are alas called “spirals” ….)

– Cheese – for the skull

– Steamed carrots for the hands and feet

– Corn – for joints

– I used olives for the skull detail


1. Cut the skull shape from a slice of cheese.



2. Add collarbone and upper arms.

Pasta Skeleton - 2 arms (1 of 1)


I used corn as the elbows then the penne again for the lower arms.

3. Add spinal column from corn and ribs from spirals.

Pasta Skeleton - 3 ribs (1 of 1)


4. Make hips and upper legs.

5. Then add corn knees and lower legs.

Pasta Skeleton - 5 legs (1 of 1)


6. I cut hands and feet from steamed carrots (that had been cut lengthways).

Pasta Skeleton - 6 hands & feet (1 of 1)


7. Then I gave him a face cut from olive. Two eye sockets, teeth and nostrils.

8. And he is ready to be eaten!
