3. Cut the paper along the edges of
the pattern, then unfold the paper.
Draw a dark spot on each side to
show where the leg bones go.
Cut out the holes here.
4. Bend the paper around and join the
ends together to make a pubic bone
in front. Be sure to keep the dark
spots on the outside. To keep the
front of the pelvis round, put a thin
strip of cardboard across the inside of
the pubic bone. Gently curl the hip
bones (at the top on each side) back.
5. Bend the tailbone back.
6. Then curl it forward.
7. Fold the little tips so that
they point inward.
You can use this pelvis with a doll (see page 459) to show how a baby passes
through a woman’s pelvis to be born.
