Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones!
My son made these...some he made into "crossbones" which were cute, too. He also had the idea of making big bones using a pretzel rod and large marshmallows. (Have you seen the super-sized ones?!?) We haven't tried this yet, but we do have ingredients left over...
(Are you wondering where I dug up this idea? I don't exactly know, but I can tell you that it was a bone-afide hit in my house! I had a race with my son to see who could make more of these. He won, but only by a marrow margin. There were just fractures of a second separating us! Here's a little bit of tibia for you...a human skeleton, on average, weighs about 20 pounds! What? You don't think it takes a lot of skull to come up with these factoids? Well, what can I say? I am pretty much blogging pro-bone-o! Anyway, if you'd femur comfortable, I'll tell you some jokes that I hope you'll find humerus!)
