Skelly the Skeleton Girl

Skelly the Skeleton Girl
Written by & Illustrated by Jimmy Pickering
Published by: Simon & Schuster 2007

What spookified whimsical fun this book is! Skelly discovers a lost bone in her house and wanders the haunted halls looking for the owner. It doesn't belong to any of her toys or her fish or the ghosts. Who could it belong too? Pure Halloween delight that isn't scary, just fun! You may think it morbid but kidlets thinks it's the best!

For some art fun, you and your wee ones can make pasta skeletons. Set out black paper, different types of pasta and glue. Elbow macaroni makes for great elbows of course and plain old spaghetti can be broken into bits for other parts and such! Glue your creations onto black paper that is mounted on cardboard or poster board and you're all set! Check out my Halloween list of books for some super delightful spooky, fun reads!

scrumdilly-do is heading out for a desert vacation at The Shady Dell in Bisbee, Arizona but we'll be back in November for some fun fall projects!
