Bones Hide and Seek
Builds on: observation and logic
1 large paper skeleton decoration
Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler
What to do:
drew my skeleton because I'm a glutton for punishments but you can make
your life so much easier by going down to the dollar store and just
buying one of those large door skeleton decorations. Dismantle it at the
joints then hide the pieces around the house. Make sure that they are
totally visible for younger kids and partially visible for older kids.
We read Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler. When I was finished I told the kids that the skeleton had hiccuped
himself to pieces and needed our help to put him back together. Together
we found all of the pieces, naming each as we found them, and figured out how they all came together to make a full skeleton. Then kids usually ask to repeat it a few times until it's snack time or someone comes to stop us.
