I feel like I need to talk about Halloween before I talk more about Dinosaur Week (2015, 2016). My kid has a reference for skeletal anatomy, so we are able to talk descriptively about comparative anatomy when we talk about fossils.

How did this happen? Every Halloween we talk about bones. They are everywhere in the artwork, so I pin up skeletal anatomy diagrams in my house and we talk about what the bones are called, how they connect, and what their functions are. He’s four now, repetition helps. We do this every year. This year trick-or-treating, he walked down the street and told his friends all about skeletons.
