What a great idea. I haven't seen these since I was a grade school student. That's about the time of the dinosaurs. I had forgotten all about these. Now I can make them for my grand kids and they will think grandma can do magic. Thank you so much for bringing back great memories and making it possible for me to make new ones too.
