Another fun IDIOM to illustrate was arm and a leg. This was kinda tricky because this could easily become macabre. I decided to use mannequin parts.

I did these for the company I work for Lakeshore Learning. Go to and type "LL405X" in the search field.

The series is called Tricky Words and Phrases: Multiple Meanings, Idioms & Homophones.
