DIY Gingerbread Man Ornaments with Stickers
Hugh hit with the kids!
My son's Kinder class came over for activities and this was the favorite. The girls especially loved doing the gingerbread girls. The children also loved having the extra stickers to do other stuff with. Excellent activity!!

There were no directions included in package. The stickers stuck to everything under it as there was not a mirror back. The kids and adults became frustrated really fast and we had to set aside to figure out later. Not worth the money !

VERY disappointing! NOT for grades K-2
Got this as a project for a first grade class. Possibly could work, if there was time to baby-sit each child as they individually did each one.
The stickers hang over the edge, even the ones that are made for the exact shape (like the hem on the girl's dress) This would not be such a problem if the stickers themselves were not so flimsy. When they touch the table, they stick to it and, more often than not, rip! That makes it impossible to put the candy canes in the hands of the girls/boys, or to let the icing ruffle the edges.
The normal solution would be to put mirroring stickers on both sides, covering up the sticky. But, there are no stickers with mirror images!
It does not even come with a sample picture, to give some ideas to go from for the kids. (Also makes me kinda question whether even they could make this look nice - and still get it off the table in one piece to hang!)
I willl say though, that even though they provide one sticker sheet per gingerperson, each sheet of stickers has enough to decorate both sides of one man AND one woman.
