24 DIY Fabulous Foam Crosses
Great craft for many ages
This craft was a big hit with our kindergarten Sunday School class. There were enough colors to choose from, LOTS of stick-ons and if the child didn't get his/her choice of color for the cross, they could get it for the base. The cross does stand up in the base nicely. The stick-on decorations are a must with this age group - glue is a mess and they are too impatient to let it dry.
My older daughters were excited that we had leftovers so they could make them too so it's definitely good for older ages too.

These crosses were a great craft for our VBS. We are a small church and needed something simple the could be used for multiple age groups. This was great for PreK-5th grade.
No glue required.

SUPER GOOD BUY!!!!!!
I am a Hospice Home Health patient. I brought these to use as Christmas presents for 2011. I am going to make my nurse, social worker, my aide, and some friends of mine one for their Christmas. The size is perfect, I like the different colors and that they have matching bases, self-adhesive alphabet and 16 religious shapes for decorating I will use some of the stickers that came with them plus use some other decorations that I already have on hand.The colors are vibrate and not dull looking. I was pleasantly surprised to how nice they were! For 37 cent a piece I can give everyone a nice gift and they will LOVE them. Thanks OT for another truly awesome product.

The children like these very much. Just be careful not to put too many jewels on them or they will tip over. They are easy to work with and easy to put together,

Crosses are thick foam
The crosses are a thick foam which makes them sturdy. The do actually stay standing up in the base they provide for them. The only drawback is that the foam stickers are on sheets. If you have a large group, it would be better to cut the stickers apart prior to the activity to prevent quarreling. I had some second graders help me cut the stickers apart, but had to finish the job myself. The stickers are so close together, that the kids were cutting parts of the sticker off.

We bought this product to use at a VBS in Peru, the crosses are good size and they stand up well in the base. One problem, if you are trying to distribute evenly like we had to do, you get 24 crosses and only 21 sets of religious stickers. It is obvious that the stickers just came on a roll, so why short the consumer three, 24 crosses, 24 sets of stickers. There were 12 sets of alphabet stickers, but they were not easy to separate either, so we just did not use. I ended up ordering an extra pack to get the 200 crafts we needed and just donating the rest to our church.

This is my first time purchasing these. I am looking forward to sharing these with the kindergartners I teach Sunday school too! When the package arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to how nice they were!

Ordered these for VBS, but did not need them. Due to the quality and price, we decided to keep them for use later on. Last year we made foam door knob hangers and the kids loved decorating them, so I'm sure we can find a use for these foam crosses. It is really nice they have a base to make the crosses stand up. This would be a great craft for celebrating Easter.

Great for little people
We used these for VBS for 3 year olds thru 1st grade. Easy to use and no mess...(means a lot when doing crafts for 200). To spread the stickers around the table to share was the only drawback. The stickers did not want to come out of the large foam with the paper still attached. Had to spread around table for 30 kids to share. Little inconvienence for the price which is GREAT!

I ordered these for a craft activity at church for children from toddler - 6th grade. They ALL could make them and learn the Easter story. I also ordered larger Easter stickers for the younger children to put on their crosses. The size of the crosses is great too!
