2. Next, arrange the bones on the table. Whilst you're doing this, you can talk to your child about the different parts of the skeleton!

6. Now for the game – blindfold each player and give them each a prop. Now, take it in turns to pin on Mr Funnybones. The closest to where the prop should sit wins!
