Skeletons aren’t just for Halloween anymore!
That’s exactly what the Dols family of Brooklyn Park believes. Kayt Dols has been setting up elaborate scenes using her skeleton friends on her front porch since last fall. Kayt says they first did a Halloween setup and neighbors loved it. People started driving by and taking pictures of her display.
Once Halloween ended Kayt thought of other ways to use the skeletons outside since she and her family had so much fun. Thanksgiving came and they had a clever way of making a festive scene with the skeletons. After that, the rest is history.
Every season and holiday, the family has been setting up their skeletons on the front porch, attracting people from all over to come, take pictures and enjoy. Kayt says the community feedback has been very positive and fun. She was surprised at how many people were calling her home “The Skeleton House.” When asked about what her plans were for the future with her skeleton displays she responded;
“Yes, I am planning on continuing. The skeletons have become a creative outlet for me during the pandemic and I cannot imagine stopping. Not all the setups will be big and elaborate, but I am having so much fun doing this, I don’t want to stop anytime soon. I have ideas for June I am planning right now, and the Olympics are coming up in July, so I am super excited to have the skeletons “competing” in Olympic events! They may be sitting to “compete”, they all need some type of ortho surgery from being played with so much, but they’ll be out there!”
