Chocolate Kiss Mouse Ornament Craft 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.

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!

These are good
I did this project with a bunch of kindergarteners and they did a pretty good job. Extra pieces were included which was helpful as the kids kept dropping peices and so on.

Great purchase for the price
I purchased this for my sons third grade class. It was wonderful and they liked it. I used the 1/2 inch glue dots to place kisses and string altogether. Everything else I used the small dots. I saved time and put together the kisses and the string together ahead of time(I'm glad I did the larger dots were harder to manage) and they did the rest. Have extra glue dots with you because they dropped a couple.

These little mice are adorable! The instructions suggest using hot glue, which I did. The chocolate melts quite well when using hot glue, which is not necessarily a good OR bad thing (assuming you don't plan to eat the chocolate later!)
There were NOT enough parts, even with "extra parts" to make 24 mice. We ended up with 23 mice, and about 8 of them have just two whiskers instead of three. However, we have several extra ears, an extra tail, and about 5 extra pairs of ears.
I actually made these myself, and wished there was an option to *not* have each craft individually packaged, since I had to open everything up and sort it out before I got started. But it was pretty easy for me (a grown-up) and I had fun doing it. And, as I said, very adorable mice. My only real recommendation to OTC would be to have *more* "extra parts" to ensure that there is enough of everything.

not great for little kids
This craft is way to difficult for young kids, as you need to use regular glue they tend to fall apart as they try to put them together. If you do purchase for younger children consider glueing the two kisses together and have it dry before they start.

Best of the Best
These mice are adorable! Everyone loves them and can't get enough. I add a bit of my own personality, like, shape the ears instead of letting them flat, and add some glitter here and there. Love them!
