THEME: SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET
Story: The Skeleton in the Closet (by Alice Schertle)
Activity: Who Has It?
From eHow.com: Players attempt to fool the “skeleton” about the location of his bone. This game is adapted from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Choose one child to be the “skeleton.” The skeleton must stand in the middle of the circle and close his eyes, while the other children pass around a cardboard bone. When an adult calls out, “Stop!” the child holding the bone hides it in her hands. The “skeleton” opens his eyes and tries to guess which player has the bone. The round ends if the “skeleton” finds the bone or if he cannot find it after three guesses. The child holding the bone then becomes the next “skeleton.”
Activity: Skeleton Races
The kids split into three teams and had to reassemble a skeleton as fast as they could (and they did an awesome job)! We used this skeleton template.
Craft: Pasta Skeletons
Participants glued various types of pasta to a piece of black construction paper to recreate a skeleton
