Fabulous Foam Lizard Doorknob Hangers
Great for older preschoolers
Bought these for a rainforest-themed VBS program for 96 preschoolers last summer. Added a bible verse printed on a small piece of cardstock and glued to the lizard's mouth. Also added adhesive googly eyes. Super cute!! Colors and quality of the materials were very good, definitely one of the better products I've purchased from OTC.
Just a note - we used these with kiddos aged 2-5. Perfect for the 4-5 year olds but the younger ones needed way more assistance with the stickers.

This WAS a great craft...
I have been buying these foam geckos for many years. Up until the last batch (which was bought a few months ago) the lizards were made of thick foam and most importantly the stickers that came with them looked like the ones in the photo (shapes, squiggle lines, etc). The children were able to create "realistic" looking lizards!
The lizards in the last batch were made from thin foam and the stickers that were sent were mostly stars and hearts - not what is shown in photo!
Still cute but no longer realistic - very disappointed in this product now.
What happened to the other stickers!

quick and east craft
it was very cute. My only disappointment was that the kit did not come with the same shapes as shown to decorate.

Great party craft
I set up a Craft table for my son's 6th birthday party and the kids loved it! It was so easy to set up and clean up. The kids got to go home with a cool doorknob lizard they decorated!

When I first saw this item I thought they would be a good item for a craft show I will be attending. When they arrived I was more than pleased. I will be putting some together myself and then the remainder I will put in cello bags with some of the shapes for the kids to assemble themselves. I am coming back for 2 or 3 more sets. Thanks.

Cute! Cute! Cute!
I bought these for my daycare kids. They are age 2-5 yrs. They loved this activity and were so proud of their art work. We had to "share" to use different colors.The stickers were a good manipulative for them, not to mention color names. I always try to add some learning in our activities/art. All the parents were so impressed with what their child had done. The other bonus is it was liked by girls and boys. It is hard to find crafts that aren't all "girly"! This is a good one! Thanks

Good craft project for all ages
I volunteer with crafts for prison visits with mothers and their children. The age of the children range from 4-18. It is not always easy to find something for that broad a range of children that will interest all and both boys and girls.
THIS WAS A WINNER..they loved it and several asked to make more than one. Fortunately I bought extras and nothing was left. The alphabet set and shapes were great..sometimes they don't stick and drop off but these stayed in place!

I love the gecko design-I couldn't find that design anywhere else. However, it would have been better if the decorations were individually popped out because it's hard to see them when using for little kids. They come in a square foam and the backing is not cut out so you can't keep them loose-you have to peel and use them right then (not as it's displayed on the website). I ended up buying more foam decorations that were loose to put on the craft table for the kids.

the kids (ages K-gr 5) really had fun with these. They were easy to do and clean up, the colors were bright, and the difference in decorating shapes and letters still allowed for individual creativity. And they're cheap:)! We also used colored sharpies to add a little extra (like coloring his toe nails) which worked pretty well.
