Product Description

If you’re looking for a quick, easy & fun little craft for the week of Halloween or party day, I think your students will really enjoy making this “Some-bony Loves You!” keepsake card.

Using straws to make a skeleton & Q-tips to make an X-ray of a handprint are not my original ideas, there are a zillion versions on the Internet.

However, no one’s made a pattern, or given step-by-step directions of how to make one.

I don’t know about your students, but if I gave my Y5s a pile of straws, and a bottle of glue, then told them to make a skeleton, they wouldn’t know where to start.

So I diddled around and came up with this simple keepsake card.

I love thinking up play-on-words, and thought “some-bony” substituted for “somebody” fit the bill. The rest of the greeting wishes the receiver a “High Five Happy Halloween”, which nicely ties in the “X-ray” handprint craft.

The beauty of these crafts is that you don’t have to make both of the activities. I’ve designed the patterns so that you can do either one of the crafts, or combine both to make the card.

I used a file folder because it provided a great “work mat”, as well as an “instant” card (no folding required) and the card stock sturdiness kept it from warping. Plus when completed, they are freestanding, which is nice for displaying.

Whenever I can, I “test” out a craftivity with my grandchildren. It gives me a heads up of possible “oops” as well as a time frame.

We made our cards in about 20 minutes. They really enjoyed the activity and my daughter absolutely loved her keepsake cards.

I’ve also included a few “bonus” skeleton-themed activities/games your students can transition to, plus some fun links.
