Today is a grey and blustery day where I live. The winds have been howling and the trees are quivering in fear. Leaves are whirling and skittering madly – it feels like Halloween is nearing! Today, I am posting a dancing skeleton halloween decoration that came out of a 1970 children’s magazine (Jack and Jill). If you click on each of the images you can download a pdf of each page. As the instructions say, print them out on cardstock, punch holes where indicated and attach all the body parts with brass brads or tabs so that the joints move and you can position your skeleton any way you like! While you are doing this you must sing,
“Dem bones, Dem bones, Dem dry bones!
Dem skeleton bones gonna walk around!
The toe bone connected to the heel bone,
The heel bone connected to the foot bone,
The foot bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the head bone”
Oh, okay you don’t have to sing this if you don’t want to!
