Skeletons in the Closet is a game for ages 7+. This interesting game teaches children the names and identification of the basic bones in our body, such as rib cage, skull, hand, radius, ulna, femur, humerus, foot, pelvis, spinal column, tibia and fibula in a fun way. Players spin to determine which bone to collect from the closet to build or take apart
their own skeleton. There are also playing cards with true or false statements (with provided answers) to help children explore facts about our skeletal system. This is a great way to introduce the study of anatomy in an exciting and understandable way.
Gretchen Thinks: “It’s nice how you can build your own little person out of plastic bones.” (Age 6)
Walter Says: “I like how you get to build your own little man. I think it’s fun to use the directions on the cards to figure out which bones to put on my man.” (Age 7)
Daddy Declares: “I have fun playing this game with my children because we like building the skeletons together. It can be a little tricky to build because the arm and leg pieces are designed to fit specifically on the right or on the left, not interchangeably. We like to make our skeletons dance around the floor once they are built!”
