Fabulous Foam Penguin Frames
Fun & Easy!
I purchase this for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. Other kids were 4-10 years old. All like their frames and did this easily, even the 3 year old. Fun activity that takes just a few minutes. One recommendation--take only the lower part of the backing off of the hats so they stick to the penguins but not the work surface. Also, purchase magnets if you want to use these frames on a refrigerator or other metal surface.

Super NASTY odor
I've noticed a chemical odor with most all of the foam products from OT but these were MUCH worse. The smell was overwhelming & sickening. I had to put them in the basement to air out but still an unpleasant odor remains. Would definitely not order again.

A lot of prep work
I purchased these for my son's 2nd grade class holiday party. There were lots of different shapes to use (10 or 12), so each child's penguin looked different and personalized. The final product was quite cute. HOWEVER, each shape comes on one big sheet of that shape, and although you are supposed to be able to "punch them out", you cannot. So I had to cut all of the shapes apart prior to the party day. And the letters are really tough to cut apart because they are crammed onto the sheets. Just be prepared...it took a lot of time. Also, it would be nice for display purposes if there was a magnet or some type of string/hanger, but unfortunately, that's not included.

I teach 3rd and 4th grade special ed reading and did a penguin unit. I took the students' pictures and gave them these personalized penguins frames as a gift at the end of the unit. It was a big success. The kiddos loved it!

The kids in my 4th grade classroom thought they were very cute and had fun with them; however, the hats stuck to everything. They were also not easy to punch out of the large sheet. Everything is also all together on large sheets, so I could only having a few kids working on them at a time. I also purchased the 2009/2010 Snowman Photo Frame Magnet Craft Kit Item # 48/6337. These were a dream. The kids loved them, they were super cute, and all the pieces were prepackaged, so I just handed them out and was able to send home a pack or two to kids who missed the activity.

I bought these for my kids kindergarten classes and they had a great time doing it and it was easy for them to do by themselves.

Fun Frame Favor
I purchased these for my son's 3rd grade class to do as a craft to take home before the holidays. Our school's mascot is a Penguin so they were a natural fit. The kids had fun getting their photos taken to put in the frames. The actually dressing up of the penguin was super easy since everything was peel and stick. The kids had a blast and got really creative. They were a great project overall.

Pretty Good Buy
The kids enjoyed decorating the penguins and were able to do the work independently, but the kids struggled with finding the letter I for their names and the hats stuck to everything they touched.
