Butterfly Suncatcher Wind Chimes
beautiful, fun, creative
I bought these for an end of the year piano recital as a craft activity that would relate to music. We painted them with the glitter paint and they came out looking beautiful!!!!

I bought these for my daycare kids to paint for Mother's Day. They all turned out really neat. Kids of all ages can do these and so that makes it the perfect craft. They don't come with hanging ribbon so I went out and purchased ribbon to hang them with and it looks great. We used the glitter paint pens/tubes that are on this website and it was basically a mess free project.

Pretty In The Sun
I got these and another style to do for a July 4th party. (Nothing like a patriotic-colored butterfly!) The kids, even the boys loved them. The boys tended to like to paint them black and blues or do strange "droplet designs" on the wings. They all turned out great. The glitter paint colors I got separately really catches the light too. All of my exterior doors jingle now and my 3yr. old boy is so proud of his "happy colors butterflies".

Value for the money
Great item for the money spent.

These were very nice; the butterflies were a nice size (which I couldn't tell from the product description) and our VBS kids really enjoyed making them. The cords for the chimes tangled easily but could be fixed with patience. There are no strings for hanging; we had to attach them ourselves.

Small but nice
Opened package--all seem to be intact----cannot rate the use of suncatcher paint purchased in addition to complete this project as class has not attempted project yet, have used suncatcher paint markers from different craft store in the past and they performed miserably...but hopeful these will do the job.

We bought these to help keep the kids busy at an adult's birthday party. They were a total hit! Everyone loved them! They were simple, clean (we used permanent markers to decorate) and so unique!

Great project - quick, easy, fun, pretty
This was one of 3 arts and crafts projects (all from oriental trading) that we did at my daughter's 8th birthday and this one was my favorite. It kept the girls busy for awhile, they had a good time doing it, it doesn't make any mess, and the end result is very pretty. Each one comes out very different which is also nice. My only mistake was letting my 5 year old son make one on his own - he squeezed way too much paint on so it was goopy and didn't dry. We got the paint pens that are made for these and they are great. One pack of pens was plenty for 8 of them. I only wish that they came with something to use to hang them up with. Also note that these do not dry right away, we let them sit over night and they were dry in the morning. I was also very glad I read the reviews about removing the stoppers from the pens before the girls try to use them.

Cute and Fairly Easy Craft!
I used this craft for Children's Church. We used Sharpie markers to color them in, which worked really well, and wasn't a big mess. They do come w/ the chimes attached, but to hang them you will have to add string. (I used fishing line, and it does the job nicely.) Kids in my class ranged from 2-10 years old, and they all enjoyed it, and were very capable of doing it on their own without help from an adult. Took twenty minutes (older kids less) to complete, and the kids were really happy with them, and proud of their results!

These were nice
We did these as a Mother's Day gift. We purchased the special pens and they were a little messy, but this was great. If I had to do it again I would do it as regular paints (not the suncatcher paint markers) or just plain markers.
