    My pig/horse cut-out likes “Barney and Friends”. My pig/horse cut-out is seven days old. My neighbor used to have a black cat that bites. One day it just ran off and disappeared. Maybe, a coyote killed it. Maybe, a stranger took it. My dog/mouse cut-out is seven days old. My dog/mouse cut-out likes “Barney and Friends”. She also likes “Kipper the Dog”. My pig/horse cut-out likes “Kipper the Dog”. He also likes “Mustard Pancakes”. My Alaskan Malamute cut-out turned two yesterday. I’ve seen some lava lamps before. My horse/moose cut-out likes “Barney and Friends”. He also likes “Mustard Pancakes”.

    how long did you have to wait for the water to sink to the bottom if you put the oil first?

  • Lynn D.

    This craft was a huge hit for my daughters 10th birthday! We didn’t wait for the water to sink and it still worked. I had them wait about 2 min tops and then gave up. The craft was pure joy. We did it with 5 girls. I had them do one step at a time and assist each other. We all stayed on the same step together and one person at a time. They repeated the alka selter step over and over again, they loved watching their own and each other’s. I would say have wet wipes on hand for the oil, sometimes a few drops would bubble out and wet wipes would have been handy. You need alot of Vegetable oil so buy enough. And we went through an entire box of alka seltzer tabs. The craft lasted about 30 minutes.
