Good one, Michal....that Shinky Dink's has been mentioned a few times lately.
Where do you get it? Do you buy it in sheets? The key chain idea is a good
"catch" for remembering the lesson. It reminds me of my holographic glasses
lesson. My 5th grade artists are creating Picasso- type Cubism paintings with
colors that pop out and recede when they look through their glasses. Great
