Christmas Penguin Ornament Craft Kit
Some did not have the adhesive, but it did not spoil the fun. We called customer service, and they replaced with no problem. Overall a good experience. I would order again.

Cute but missing some parts
I bought these ornaments to give to my group for Christmas. A friend of mine assembled them for me, and she recommend using hot glue to put the pieces together. The self stick didn't work so well. Also, some of the packages were missing hangers, or the hangers were really, really short. They turned out good though and I think my friends will be pleased. We wrote the name of the group and the year on the penguins' white tummies to personalize them and they were really cute.

Cute Craft for Classrooms
Our middle school bought these penguin Christmas ornaments for every child at our elementary school. Our middle school students went to the elementary school and helped the youngsters create their Christmas crafts. The only problem we had was with gluing, but with some teacher help it all worked out in the end. It put a lot of smiles on the kids' faces. :)

Great for Holidays!!!
As always, Oriental Trading is a great place to find reasonable prices for fast activities. There is a joke in our Head Start that when we order from Oriental Trading, it's here before we hang up the phone!! HA!!
Whatever you are doing you are doing right!!! :)

This craft was fast and easy and great for young kids. It didn't take much time to assemble but kept the children happy and occupied. I ordered a few other kits to go with to occupy them further. I also found that getting the sticky glue dots was a good idea and eliminated the need for messy paste glue.
Finished product looked great. Kids were pleased and that's the bottom line.

Fun to make
Easy to assemble. Used this and felt penguin bags for high school senior holiday party. Was cute and a great success. Had a fresh look and gave them a more grown up ornament to make the gifts match the candy bags. These are kids who love animals and have too many Santa and snowmen from past years. Loved these items!

so cute and easy!
I did these with my son's 3rd grade class and they loved them...we wrote their names on the scarf and the year on the belly of the penguin at the bottom. Everyone was happy and I got to spend some time with my kid's classmates and teacher.

fun for kids
These were easy to use and put together except there were a few pieces that the sticky backs were dried out and we had to use glue. that was our only disappointment.

Poor quality and not sticky
Like the other reviewers said, the small pieces are supposed to be self-adhesive, but aren't. I was looking for something with less mess for an easy playdate activity. But, we ended up having to use glue to get them to stick. Also, most of the main bodies of the penguins had marks on them, like little dotted red and green lines and black smudges. I'm thinking these were from improper cutting of the pieces during manufacturing. Really unhappy with the quality of these and expected much more!

very cute but you need glue
These are packaged individually and look great....but the only part that really was sticky was the white snowman piece that you stick to the black foam. The other pieces (hat, scarf, nose) have a sticker to peel, but then it is just not sticky at all, like the glue dried up. So, we used glue sticks and I called OTC today. They quickly volunteered to take care of the situation. I will try the snowflake project next.
