just missed it..but I did do it TODAY! :)...we did it with model magic and a plastic bag. (roll up plastic bag, cover with model magic, put two pipe cleaners on bottom, secure with model magic.) I Put paper clip in top. They are drying and hopefully will work!I hope the model magic is strong enough.....I let the kids do any animal (although I REALLY wanted just pigs, but its only grade 2 and I am a push over!)I'll file your fantastic process away..maybe we'll do that on Monday with two of my other classes!
