This DIY skeleton is the perfect way to teach kids about the anatomy of the human body. Each part of "Billie Bones" arrives over a series of thirty four weeks. For example, you start the first installment ($2.99) by assembling the skull, then the following week the eyes and brain ($12.99), then the ribs and cervical vertebrae, etc.
Ready to assemble the ribs
We purchased our "How Your Body Works" kit from the local newsagent, and the kids eagerly await the delivery of the next issue of the skeleton which will eventually stand at 110 centimeters tall.
My daughter has not put down Billie Bones' cranium ever since we pieced it together and she loves telling people that he has thirty two teeth and she put them all in his head by herself.
"Billie Bones" comes with a set of clear instructions and plenty of educational material about each part of the body as you assemble him. Even if the kids get bored with putting him together, at least it will make a great Halloween prop. All in all, I highly recommend this activity for anyone over the age of eight years. Have fun.
