Beaded Snowflake Key Chain Craft Kit
Really, really pretty
I really liked these, they are very pretty. They require pliers to twist the wires, which I didn't realize when I bought them. I ended up setting them up myself by doing keyring part, letting my girls string the beads, and then doing the finishing twisting myself, since they didn't have the dexterity or patience to do that. But the kids didn't seem to mind, and we all got to work on them together. They are going out as Christmas gifts next year. I would recommend using the pliers to give the snowflake attachement ring a squeeze; some of them weren't completely closed and could fall off if you don't.

Easy and impressive
We made these as a gift to parents this year, and did it in less than 15 minutes! Have a needlenose pliers handy though to finish off the wire to ensure it is curled tightly. We wrapped them in little organza bags and it was a no-brainer gift the kids felt proud to make and give.

Nice but cheap materials
The key loop is very small and not made of good metal. The silver looking beads are plastic. He has glass blue beads but the "metal" looking ones are actually a cheap plastic and the silver paint came off while I assembled them.

Beaded snowflake keyring
I bought this for a senior craft and it is very simple but does require a needlenose plier to crimp the wire. It was a fast project and our seniors did it quickly.
We were missing a bead in one of our packets of 8.

Easy to assemble.

Cute keychain. Parent needs to help a bit.
I bought this for my 8 yr old to try and to give to a few of her friends. The key chains were pretty. However, a parent needs to help with pliers for the beginning and the end of the craft. Some of the wires were too short, and the beads often fell of the wire. As a result, we had to start over and re-do the bracelet.

Great for 9 yr old party, with some set up
Purchased for 9 yr old girl party. Before the party, I made 2 examples of the keychains and left on table for the girls to see. I bent the wire around the keyring ahead of time and put the beads in a cup for each girl. Also put out paper towels for each seat so beads wouldn't roll onto the floor. The girls had no problem making them, and the girls thought they were really pretty! I went around with needlenose pliers and closed up the ends as the girls finished their keychains. When, they were done, I put it in a baggie and wrote their name on the baggie for pick up at the end of the party. With some preplanning, this worked out really well!

good for older kids
I purchased these for my 11 year old to make for Christmas gifts. I helped him with the first one and he was able to do the rest on his own. The problems I had with them were the wires were bent and all different sizes so some were too short to fit all the beads and other have too much room for beads to slide. We also had a few missing pieces that weren't in the extra pieces bag.
