We've been collecting things for the Egyptian party coming up. We're planning on using these cobra and alligator grabbers for a series of relay races, and favors to take home from the party. With a small guest list, purchasing a few of these things wasn't too expensive. We just ran into the zoo on the way home from the grocery store one afternoon and found them at the gift shop right inside the door. We were aiming for alligators and were super excited to find cobra heads as well.
Next up... turning a hula girl pinata into Cleopatra or Isis.
