Tonight we started making our Halloween Decorations. I saw this idea on Pinterest for a cute cursive name skeleton. It was fun, but my kids had a hard time cutting in/out and around all the cursive lines. They just weren't sure what spots to leave alone and which to cut. We managed but it was a little tricky.

Step 1: Fold the piece of paper in half. Put the fold side on the bottom. Step 2: Write your name LARGE in cursive. Make sure your letters on the bottom touch the fold. Step 3: Cut around the cursive letters to form the inside of your skeleton. Step 4 cut out arms,head,and legs. Step 5: Glue onto black paper with the first letter of your name at the bottom. I would say age on this craft is 8 and up.

Always the comedian Jack said "NOTICE THE RESEMBLANCE MOM??" LOL!!
