A few months ago, I saw this on the Painted Pear , and I just had to try it. My students absolutely LOVED this project. Some of them have gone home and taught their brothers and sisters how to make these as well. If you want directions, they are written out on the Painted Pear.
My favorite thing about these lizards was displaying them in the hall. We have been joking around about how we have a "lizard infestation in our school, and we might need to call an exterminator." The kids are getting a kick out of it.
