Our Classroom Skeleton!

I Love Halloween!  My class can't dress up {but they can wear Halloween shirts to school - we have a dress code - so this is special!} - but teachers can!  If you remember - I am going as Skippyjon Jones! Can't wait!!! I'll try to take pics and post them {If you promise not to laugh at me!}

To get ready for Halloween, my class made a skeleton out of toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls. Now, before you go "oooo yuck!" at toilet paper rolls - let me tell you, I have been "hoarding" these since the summer in a large Ziploc and was very careful!  It took us 26 toilet paper rolls and 10 paper towel rolls that my class painted white {with their hands - no paint brushes! I wish I had taken pictures - they had sooo much fun!}  and we let dry over night and then I hot glued them to black bulletin board paper. 

They had fun telling me the parts of the body and where all the pieces went {I let them hand me the pieces and then I hot glued them in place}.  Now, just to find a place to hang it in my tiny 20 x 30 room!


Oh.... And have you noticed my new blog design? Do you love it?!  I am a fan of Melonheadz and had to buy some of her cuties!  The awesome ladies at Honey Bunch Blog Design designed my blog! All I can say is... .LOVE!

Wow this skeleton is too darn cute! Totally pinning so I can steal it next year! But, I have to say that I love my custodians - they save me the toilet paper rolls from the adult bathrooms in the building, so whenever I need some I just have to ask!
