Clever Halloween Quotes
Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
Cover the pelvis area in glue and stick the length of string from the leg to the pelvis so that the leg will hang from the middle of the pelvis bone. Then stick three peg halves on top of the pelvis. Tapered ends to meet the spoon handle and with the central peg sticking out a little further than the other pegs to give a more rounded look to the pelvis bone.

One of the problems with a number of games and activities designed for kids is the fact that they are seemingly lacking in creativity and that does not provide much for the kids in terms of helping them to think analytically and creatively. Whoa! That statement seems like a huge stretch in terms of describing the value of printable Halloween bingo cards.

However if you look at the underlying creativity beneath the design of the cards then the value of the cards becomes obvious.
