Craft some Funnybones party decorations

You will need:

•  A4 paper and a printer

 A pair of scissors

 A pencil and plasticine

 Ten split pins

 Two pieces of string

How to make it:

1.  Once you've printed everything out, carefully cut along the dotted lines. You should have six separate pieces

2.  Take the left arm and body pieces, and using the pencil make a hole in the top of the arm and top left shoulder of the body piece

3.  Place the top of the arm behind the shoulder, and push a split pin through both holes and secure at the back

4.  Repeat step 2 using the right arm piece

5.  Punch a hole in the bottom of the body piece and the top of the pelvis, push a split pin through and secure at the back

6.  Take the left leg, make a hole in the top of the leg and at the bottom left of the pelvis, push a split pin through the holes and secure

7.  Repeat step 5 using the right leg piece

8.  Finally, punch a hole in the top of the body piece, and thread a piece of string through the hole and knot it to create a loop.

Now pick a spooky spot to display, and string up your decorations for a frightening Halloween effect!

  • This is how the story begins.
    On a dark dark hill
    there was a dark dark town.
    In the dark dark town
    there was a dark dark street . . .

    This new edition of the classic story includes an accompanying CD, featuring the story read by acclaimed comic actor Stephen Mangan.

    Janet and Allan's frightfully funny Hallowe'en classic tells the story of three skeletons - a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton - who venture out of their cellar one night to find someone to scare, only to find that everyone is in bed. Who will they scare now?!
