Craft Time...


The other night we made a paper skeleton.

Trace the body parts onto card stock or construction paper and cut out.  You can find the pattern here.

Next, color the face, if you wish.  Make a hat, bow tie, basket for the skeleton to hold....whatever you wish... 
 With a glue stick, glue the skull to the neck...
the neck to the shoulder blades... 
the ribcage to the spine... 
and the spine to the hips... 
Do this while singing, "The hip bones connected to the leg bone......"

Poke a small hole in each shoulder using a toothpick or other sharp device... 
Use paper fasteners to connect the upper arm to the shoulders... 
Poke holes at each elbow and connect the forearm... 
Then poke holes in each forearm and connect the hands... 
Continue this process with the legs and feet.

If you don't have paper fasteners, you can just use a glue stick.

Glue the hat(optional) to the skull... 
The instructions said to use a toothpick to poke the holes.  That was probably the safer method.
If you have one of these handy dandy tools that came with a pumpkin carving kit... 
then I suggest using it!  It worked perfectly!  Of course, adults only should use it.  It's not meant for little hands.  That's my disclosure.  Thank you!


The finished project... 

Silly girls... 
Oh this little guy makes me smile... 
I think it's the hat!... 

He may be a permanent member in our house I love it so much!
