Review:
What a wonderfully tactile experience it is to transform wisps of wool fleece into fuzzy fabric! Squish a bit of fleece with soap and water, then press, rub and roll it around a wire to make a bendable snake, or pat it onto an oval form to make an "eggshell." The rich fleece colors (purple, blue, yellow, and green) can be used individually or in blended combinations. This kit is particularly good for beginners because the shapes are small and simple enough to complete quickly. Consider it also for a group activity (birthday party?) because there's enough fleece for everyone to make and take a few snakes and eggs.
