Street Anatomy: vintage dental teaching tool
Isn’t the internet marvellous? Once I would have had to travel to Paris, wander into a curio shop at just the right time and discover this charming dentistry teaching device all by myself. Now it just lands in my lap while I’m scrolling my phone. Although, there’s a lot to be said for going old school. Wandering Paris doesn’t sound half bad.

That tastes funny – anaesthetic and receptors on the tongue
This morning I have had an unexpected trip to the denti$t. The anaesthetic is still wearing off so the receptors in my tongue are playing up a bit. I’m drinking chocolate milk through a straw and it tastes sweet on the unaffected side of my tongue and salty on the side that had the anaesthetic. Looks totally normal, though, don’t you think?

DIY Papercraft Skull from Skull-A-Day
Despite being a bit like Penny from The Big Bang Theory when it comes to craft I do like to have a go from time to time. As long as it is easy, doesn’t involve waiting around too much for glue or paint to dry or a special trip to the shops I’m usually up for it.
Enter the DIY Papercraft Skull with Articulated Jaw from Skull-A-Day. TaDa!
papercraft skull made with free printable from skull-a-day
It’a as easy as:
- Download here –> skull-a-day
- Cut out
- A little sticky tape here, a little there
- Assemble and run around the house snapping the jaws and making Unh Unh Unh noises
I reckon this has got end of year classroom activity written all over it. Add a bit of glitter, felt and cotton wool and you’d have yourself a Snapping Santa Skull.

Freaky Fashion: Body Anatomy Sweatshirt
This little stunner has been sold, but they suggested it would be a good teaching aid for the classroom. I’m not sure about that. Is that a tiny liver on the wrong side of the body above the kidneys?
