My husband and I visited Cancun over the Christmas holiday in 2010. Our very welcoming room service attendants made those overly creative animals out of towels everyday. The only materials they used are rubber bands, towels and stickers for the mouth and eyes.
If you are looking for something special for your guests visiting your home, I recommend the towel animals. Aren't they so pretty????
