The Crafty Crow: Cut out and keep skeleton

Cassi from The Crafty Crow asked me to contribute to her “A Book & A Craft Series” which lasts the whole month of June. Check it out….there are a few lovely posts already there so I reckon it’s going to be a cracking month.

One of my all time favorite books is Funnybones by Janet Ahlberg. I have such fond memories of that book as a child and my two boys adore it also.

For some reason I always wanted to make a life-size (well, child-size) paper skeleton so here are the results.

    Hello Fred, you’re perfect!

  8. Just what I was looking for! My 5 yr old asked to learn about ‘bones’ so I thought of a skeleton for the front door since it Halloween time, but labeled with the basic bones since I don’t like scary on my door. This is perfect! Thank you!

  9. This is great. I remember doing something like it at school when I was younger. I particulary love your smaller pictures as it looks like the skeleton has an eye! Lol.
