100% Pure Fake

Hey Chickadees and Chicadont's!

We're trying something new here at the Coop. A category of reviews we call Three Silly Chicks' Picks. It's all the same nutritious goodness of our usual reviews but organized by the most important questions we can think of. (Next to What's for breakfast? What's for lunch? and What's for dinner?) Our goal is to make our reviews even more useful to you fast-paced teachers, librarians, parents, and grandparents. Enjoy!!!

What is it?
An easy-to follow guide to creating fake brains, snot, moles, puke & other wonderfully disgusting stuff.

What do we love about it?

The way the pictures of fake puke trigger our gag response. Yep, Folks, these are seriously sweet special effects.

What does it remind us of?
Halloween, B-movies, and our favorite uncles who know ALL the right sound effects and exactly when to use them.

What is it perfect for?
Any self-respecting fourth grader who is worth his (or her) weight in whoopie cushions.

What do we think?
100% Pure Fake is grody, gooey goodness!
