Cool After School: Skeletons

by Vicky on November 29, 2010

For our after school program on the Wednesday before Halloween, I read Funnybones, by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.  It’s a great read-aloud, and all the kids chimed in on the spooky opening and closing lines: “On a dark, dark night, in a dark, dark town, etc., etc….” and relished the great illustrations.

Afterwards, they had fun making skeletons from paper plates.  My wonderful friend and surrogate mother, Dee, gave me this great idea, and it was a huge hit with the kids.  Be sure to note the horned cyclops skeleton!
