DIY Flying Disks
Purchased these for a Family Night activity at work for 3yr olds through 5th graders. Discs were very durable. Didn't want to use permanent markers so I just bought lots of foam stickers and they stuck well and everything looked great.

I bought this for a Cub Scout Day Camp. It was a great project. We bought the permanent markers also. The frisbies were a little bit smaller than I thought. The project worked perfect. I would completely recommend this project.

Great, Easy Project
We used this in the kids zone at a celiac walk. They were small enough to not be hazards if thrown around but big enough to do some great artwork on. The kids loved doing them!

Always a hit!
I teach art classes during the school year and art camps during the summer. We first purchased these four years ago with no problems. Then several years ago we received an order in which the plastic was brownish - they just looked dirty. We were disappointed and have been nervous to order them ever since. We read some reviews where other people had complained about the same thing. This summer we hoped that the problem had been corrected, so we took a chance and ordered them again - brilliant white! We were relieved.
These are simple, inexpensively made, light weight flying disks. They are, however, the hit of our camps, birthday parties, or art classes!
We lead the kids through a drawing project and have made parrots, sea turtles, etc. on them. We have found that colored Sharpies work best. Turn the pens slightly on their sides and use small strokes to get the color to adhere. (If you go back over an area which is all ready dry, you'll begin to remove the color.) To remove lines you don't like, use a small dab of finger nail polish remover and a Q-tip.
Younger kids can decorate them with foam stickers. No matter the age or throwing ability, the kids love them!

Flying Disks are so-so
These were bought for an end-of-year school party. They were smaller than I anticipated and off-white in color. I was concerned that there might not be enough room for all 24 students to sign plus teacher but they made it by keeping signatures small and using only first names.

Not great, but good for the money
Bought these to have as an activity for my son's birthday party. They are not white, but kind of grayish-white color. They are also a bit warped, don't totally lie flat on a surface. But the kids had fun with them!

Price Great, Appearance Disappointing
The first time I ordered these flying discs, they were a bright white in color. That is how they are pictured. I have ordered them twice since. The second time they were a tannish color and looked old or dirty. I wasn't very satisfied. I decided to give them another try, and they arrived somewhere between the white and dirty tan.
