Dream Catcher Key Chain Craft Kit
After reading the instructions I found it very easy to do. I had to refer back to the instructions but they were easy to understand. Once a couple were finished the easier it became. Practice makes perfect!

make cute gifts.
These a cute when completed. I had difficulty assembling these and the instructions aren't very helpful. My young grandchildren will need a lot of help making these.

Good turnout, but needed to concentrate: better for older kids
We bought these for a craft for my daughter's 11th birthday/slumber party. The girls were aged 9-11 and most had trouble figuring it out. Even I, at a glance, had trouble. The 11 year-old who had been taught fishing knots figured it out first, then either helped or made a lot of the other girls' crafts.
When I was able to sit down and concentrate on the directions/illustrations, I was able to figure it out and have it look good. My 13 year old didn't even want to mess with the craft--too confusing with the directions. (The illustrations and final photo are what helped me get it done correctly.)

Not for beginners
Way too hard to do. Beads were missing from many packets.

I have purchased several of these over time. This is one of my favorite craft projects. I make a few changes and the end result is a very pretty dreamcatcher. Instead of using the keychain I loop a ribbon onto it for use as an ornament or even to hang from a car's rear view mirror. I use different beads than the ones included in the kit. I use faceted or tri beads. Lastly, I put glitter all over the webbing (both sides). The finished product is a very pretty, sparkly ornament/decoration.... The only one problem I find with the kits would be with the feathers. Some may be too small, skinny broken, etc. I often have to use some of my own feathers. Overall, I love this kit and will continue to order it.

Great for stimulating the children's mind.

We haven't made these yet, we are planning an Twilight themed party. My daughter is turning 9 and, according to the other reviews, it appears some of the younger children may need help putting this together. I'll try one out for myself beforehand. Price is always right.

Not only was it therapeutic but its fun to include the kids.I did the weaving a little different than what the instructions said, and they turned out BEAUTIFUL! The quality was as expected, and it may take some getting used to to get it looking just right. But i would totally recommend it to others.

Difficult for some, but very pretty
I bought these for 12-16 year old girls. Some just could not understand it, but some did just fine. They can be really pretty if done with any sort of attention and skill. It's pretty nice quality considering the price.

Nice Final Product, a little tough to do.
I did these with Jr. High kids and it was a little difficult to explain how to tie the string to them. The instructions made it tough for me to even figure out myself at first. Once you have the knot figured out though it's not hard at all and the final product turned out really nicely.
Be sure to glue your feathers on though!
