Advent Countdown Paper Chain Craft Kit
We introduced the Advent season, and needed a visual for the students. I'd planned a calendar but, when I saw this Advent chain, I immediately changed plans. The idea is fantastic: have students/children do something as they remember the count down to the first coming of Christ and look forward to the second. The ideas are do-able, kid-friendly, and fun! After a few days, the self-stick ends started coming apart. (We eventually taped the ends together.) Other than the ill-functioning glue, the project was excellent. AND, it was a hit with the parents!

Incomplete/ Poorly Made
Great ideas- awful kit. The adhesive didn't stick- no problem we just glue sticks. Many didn't have the string- no problem we added our own. Many out of order- we manually put them in order. Most kits had double numbers, missing numbers and one had NO numbers. How does this even happen? We had to open extra packages and salvage whole sets when we could. How these ever passed as marketable is beyond me. Very poor quality.

Adhesive didn't last!
These were for a church bazaar craft area. The night before the bazaar I put together one of the chains to act as a sample for the next day. The next morning I came into the room, and almost all of the chains were apart! The adhesive strips didn't stay stuck. At this point the bazaar was about to start, so there was nothing to be done about it. Very disappointing.

glue does not work
Bought this chain activity because activity had self-adhesive strips. The strips do not stay together. Consequently they have to be stapled. Happy I made one first only to find out later that the chains fell apart once the kids got them home. The activities suggested on the strips but was disappointed as to how they went together.
