Chocolate Kiss Mouse Valentine Craft Ornament Kit
I bought this last year for my 5th grade Valentine's Day party. Believe it or not, I actually was a student and I made at least 30 of them for my class in about two weeks. I bought them almost too late so I had to rush to get them done. Some of the tips on the Kisses were showing the chocolate so I didn't use those. The finished project was really cute and one of my friends said, "Thanks! It's almost too cute to eat!". I was glad and everyone loved them. Just be sure to allow plenty of time for your glue to dry and prop the 2 sides up so they don't separate when they're drying.

The idea for this craft is really neat. However, the workmanship leaves a lot to be desired. It was great that each kit was packaged separately. Some of the packets had extra pieces and some were missing some pieces. All of the pieces were supposed to be pre-cut but I had to use scissors for many of mine. I would suggest using glue dots instead of regular glue. This would be a difficult craft for smaller children. It's more suited for tweens. Once finished, it is a very unique craft that is really fun to give.

Fun and easy to make
I was very pleased with how easy they were to put together. The kids loved it.

Not a fun project
I bought this project for my daughter to make for her friends for Valentines Day. The pieces was very hard to make stick on the hershey kisses. I used a glue stick, which didn't work, then I used a glue spray. The spray worked a little better, but we still couldn't get the small eyes and ears to stick. I was using these glue products to stay away from the hot glue gun. It wasn't a fun project at all.

They are so cute!
I like giving a little gift to different groups of people I know. This little mouse will make a nice Valentine's Day hand out for the McDonald's employees where I stop in the morning to say thank you for all your hard work, the special needs adults I work with during the day, and my granddaughters class at school. What a versatile little gift to say thanks, I care, and have a great day. They are really cute!

For older kids
I liked the mice but they need glue dots (lots). Expect them to be eaten.

cute & fun craft
I did this craft with my son's 2nd grade class and my daughters 4th grade girl scout troop, and it was a big hit. We used glue dots (the smaller ones) and it held up wonderfully. We used 2-3 glue dots to hold the 2 kisses together. The glue dots made this craft so easy to do. The 2nd graders had no problems doing it all by themselves. Many packages were missing pieces, and the extra's that they give you are never enough to make up for what's missing. This is a great craft to do, but if you buy it, make sure you have more then what you need to make up for the missing pieces.

Missing parts and slippery glue made kraft "crash"
Relying on all parts to be present many of the mice produced were incomplete - "Three Blind mice - tail cut off by butcher knife"..... disappointed in packing of the craft.
Secondly, craft should recommend glue dots be used. At least three types of glue were tried and we never really found one that really stuck. I estimate the drying time as being at least 1 hour to ensure that parts were stable before handing the mice. This drying time is unacceptable for a childrens kraft done in a two hour training session!
