This item was rated for children 5 and up. It took ME 40 minutes to complete one ornament! MOST children under 10 would not be able to complete making more than one! The beads are small, and difficult for little hands. The worst part was, when I opened the package, there were a few broken beads. I was certain that there would be a few extras- WRONG! I am using one package for spares, therefore losing one ornament! They are very cute when finished, but who has time? I had hoped my children would make them, but I will have to complete them myself!!!

Do not buy!
Do not buy this craft for your children! It didn't come with all the pieces need to complete all 12 snowflakes! It took a very long time to go through and sort and count the beads because the exact amount wasn't counted ahead of time. It seemed like someone just dumped a handful of beads in each baggie. It took a lot of time and improvising to complete this craft! I do not recommend it at all!!

Fun but lacking
The other reviews are true...the bead count is off in almost every kit. Thanks to the other review we bought extra beads so it worked out well. Using packages of mulitcolored beads works well too....very cool effect when finished and you don't have to worry about patterns.

Difficult to Assemble
These ornaments were difficult for kids to assemble. Not all the beads had holes big enough to fit on the pipe cleaners while others had holes that were too big causing the beads to fall off. Frustratiing project for the kids.

Legand of snowflake
See photo = 3 colors of beads and instructions are for 4 colors. Also NOT enough colors to do the patten in picture. Fun project that would be really great if correct beads were in package. Even w/extra spare beads you can't complete project.

Directions said there were 4 colors of beads, they only gave us 3. Other than that, it was easy to follow directions.

Not a huge fan
I bought 12 of these and can only make 10 as there are not enough of 3 colors of beads.

The kids loved making their own ornament at the Christmas party. They couldn't wait to get home and put it on their tree. Now they will remember the fun they had making it every year.

kids did easily
I had to twist the pipecleaners for them and then they enjoyed this on their own. I tied ribbon in the end but was great deal and cute!
