Review:
Knees, elbows, fingertips -- any skin area invites artistic self-expression with washable, non-toxic cosmetic crayons. Delightful instructions gently lead children from basic techniques to the creation of colorful hand and finger puppets (people and animals), fist faces, “knee pals,” temporary (thank goodness!) “tattoos,” rings, wrist watches, necklaces and more. It’s a blend of art and theater as each kind of embellishment elicits a change of persona or inspires dramatic play.
