We did the same thing when I was a Scout. It's great fun to do. Just
make real sure the bones are cleaned thouroughly and bleached before using
them. Our leaders combined this project with folk stories of whittling
and scrimshaw and made it an "Event" each year. We would paint designs
and our Troop Nr. etc. depending on the size of the bone. This also led
to some pretty amazing stories about how we captured various beasts,
feasted on them and leaving nothing to waste, used the bones to create
slides for Summer Camp!
