Magic Color Scratch Penguin Christmas Ornaments
We did these with a Webelos den as part of a service project for the residents at the assisted living community where we meet. I bought a variety of about a hundred (penguins, snow flakes and mittens). The boys (and parents) let their creativity flow. All were asking where I purchased and how long they'd take to ship. Once done the boys hung them all on the resident's doors - no two alike.
The only bummer to these magic color scratch items is that users must be extremely careful not to accidentally scratch unintended areas. For our home use (book markers and ornaments), I'm planning to modpodge over top and spray with clear sealer in hopes they will be permanently fixed and scratch proof. Otherwise -love them.

Kids love it!
Purchased for a Cub Scout Den craft. The boys thought it was cool. Glad I also purchased other shapes!

Really fun and proving to be practical
I got these to be DIY To-From tags for holiday presents. When I received these in the mail, I started doodling on a penguin and soon my fiance was curious and started doodling on his own penguin - so it can be fun for 30-year-olds who are young at heart, too!

Kids love them
Bought these for kids to make ornaments for our Christmas tree. My kids love these penguins. I bought other scratch ornaments but these are the biggest hit. Just be careful they don't scratch too hard the paper rips.

Not enough sticks!!
We used these as party favor's for my son's Penguin-themed birthday, but there were only 12 sticks in the set and we made 24 gift bags, so some of the gift bags didnt have sticks. :-S

Kids loved them!
I used these for a class holiday party. The kids loved them and spent a lot of time working on them. The only drawback was the set only comes with 12 sticks so I had to buy cuticle sticks to supplement for a class of 20. I believe I was also short 2 ribbons so make sure you have everything before the day of your party!

These are AWESOME!!!!
I worked on these with my 3 kids (ages 17, 13 & 4) and we had a great time!! The sticks are nice and large and the ribbons to tie on the penguins are a good length (easy to work with). The penguins are super-cute & have lots of color underneath. Will definitely buy them again (probably two to three packs--my 4-year-old LOVES them!
