Of course part of celebrating "Christmas" with the ladies involved a gift exchange. And once again they out-did themselves in terms of buying amazing things for my boys. This is just one of the really cool presents: ANIMAL HANDS. I believe they were purchased at Dick Blick - but they're also available on Amazon.
They're temporary tattoos, but seem to hold up VERY well! Alex has been Mr. Alligator for four days already, and after many trips to the potty (being careful with the soap/water) and a bath or two, it's still looking good!
(This photo was taken just after application, before it was dry.)
So, if you're looking for a gift idea for the young child in your life - these are AWESOME! The box says that they're suitable for hands of any size, but not below age 3. Obviously they'd just take up less "acreage" on an adult's hand, but they fit perfectly on my almost 5 year old.
But, you should be forewarned, that if your child comes to play, I'm pretty sure Alex won't want to share. They're just that cool! "Mr. Alligator" is having too much fun with them all by himself.
