Good idea for the little ones.  Just don't do this to a pathologist.  We did this once, years ago (as a joke), H&E stained it, and the good doctor took one look under the scope and never ate another one.  Said at that magnification it looked like a gangrenous limb....

Take-home message is...don't look at gangrenous limbs under a microscope!
