Are these really good---and exactly where did they come from??????
Several years ago, I had an after school program called That's Disgusting! We had a huge turnout and it was fun to plan,too. Why haven't I ever repeated this? Boogers on a stick are yummy and fun to make. Kitty Litter cake is wonderful and looks so awful. Squashed bug on a fly swatter is a really fun craft to make.Well, in honor of Kathleen Baxter and her inspiring booktalks, I am going to have a disgusting revival, since all things gross are so appealing to school age kids.

Lauber, Patricia,What You Never Knew About Tubs, Toilets, and Showers (Around the House History)S&S,2001
