Fabulous Foam Penguin Christmas Ornaments
Easy and fun to do
Bought this item because the penguin is our school mascot. We have monthly meetings with high school students and they thought it was a neat idea. It surprised me at the high school level. They are fast and easy to put together. The students had fun mixing and matching the different accessories.

Must have more
I must have more for my little crafter! She wants to make one every day! Really pleased with the quality. Not sure why they say age 5+, my daughter is 2 1/2 & she can "do it herself". Love that all the pieces are self adhesive!

Easy Kids Craft
I purchased this a an activity for the family's annual Christmas. I chose this because I thought that it would be a craft for all the age ranges of the kids in attendance and I was right. This was a easy quick craft that all the kids were able to do. All the kids loved making penguins. There were enough pieces and variation that penguins weren't too similar to each other. The adhesive held very well, I was worried that it might not hold up but they all held together great! Overall great easy craft! I will definitely purchase more just like it for the next year's Christmas party!
The only con is that I didn't plan for all the paper backings from the adhesive. Next time, I need to make sure that I have a garbage bag or little paper bags for the kids to put these into the garbage. I sweeped up most of the papers but a couple got away here and there.

Kids loved it! Disappointed that there was no directions
I'm the classparent for my sons class and bought to make a craft during the Holiday Party. The kids loved that they got to take them home to hang on the tree or fridge or one child said he was putting on the door handle of his room. My only problem was that their was not any directions for the teacher. I printed a picture from your website so the teacher was able to use it as a guide but printed directions/pictures would have helped.

Super Fun Project
I used these for our holiday party so people could make a craft and have a keepsake. We are all in the education field and we loved it! It was a super fun activity.

We did this craft for my daughter's 4th birthday part. I was disappointed when I opened the bag. On the back of each penguin, is a stamp "oriental trading.com", the black stamp transfered to the white belly party of the penguin behind it. So half of the penguins have a black stamp on the belly and cannot be removed. Very sad.

A Simple Craft with Room for Improvement
These were a lot of fun for the kids to put together at a Christmas party. That being said, the sticky backs of the foam mittens were still exposed after assembly and picked up a lot of lint. Not a deal breaker, but it was a little weird.
