Head--lettuce leaves, sliced olives, veggie dip in a small bowl
Body--celery, baby carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, cherry or grape tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers
Arrange the veggies on a platter in the shape of a skeleton, top with an appropriate sized bowl of veggie dip for the head. (I'm sure your presentation will look better than mine. Note to self: skip the waxed paper next time. I'm not really sure WHY I used it in the first place.)
Take a picture of your final Veggie Man, print it up, then let your kids recreate him with the left-over veggies the next day.
I found this vegetable skeleton idea on the internet last year, but I'll be darned if I can find it now to give appropriate credit.
