Skeleton Dress Up - Flannel Friday

Salutations everyone!

For this Special Halloween Flannel Friday, I'm sharing my Skeleton Dress Up flannel activity that I created for my 2011 Halloween storytime

I found this simple skeleton coloring page online and enlarged it. I cut all the bones out in white felt and glued to black felt to help keep everything sturdy and to stand out more on the board. All the parts of the body are their own individual pieces as well.

I created a silly outfit and accessories for the children place on Sal (that's the name of the skeleton, by the way) to get him ready for Trick or Treating. For these items I just drew my own templates. I plan on adding more accessories so that I have enough pieces to hand out to the toddlers and preschoolers if I have a big group.

There is no rhyme or song associated with this flannel board. Like many of my flannels, it is just a fun activity to do that matches the storytime theme.

Have a great weekend!
