Fiery Furnace Sign Craft Kit
I bought this item for my preschool class during our Good Friday retreat this year. It took a lot of prep work on my end - no 4 year old would've been able to put this together on their own (gluing the plastic in between the two black pieces took a while to line everything up right) I had to prep each one a few days before - one night to separate out all the pieces and one night to glue the main parts together. Hint - use white glue from the bottle to do this, but give the kids watered down glue per instructions. It needed a stronger glue to stick the two black parts and plastic together, but the tissue could be done with the watered down glue. Older kids might be able to do this on their own... but they would need a LOT of time to do it.
All that being said - the preschool kids LOVED gluing the tissue paper on to create a fire-look and the stickies turned out great. They were able to do the tissue paper and the stickies themselves. It was an awesome project and one of the best I've seen/done for this bible story. They were very excited to tell their parents the story when they showed them their finished craft. I will definitely use it again.

A great craft for 1-2 graders
This was a very high quality craft. It came with an abundance of tissue paper for each furnace. I would recommend an adult assist with putting together the front and back of the furnace as it's VERY sticky (a good thing for quality) and if you don't place it right the first time it is forever stuck in the wrong place. They turned out beautifully and the kids enjoyed the stained glass craft.

not worth the headache!!
I bought this for my churches children's group. It was terrible! It too much time and for theamount of money there should have been two acetate pieces per craft. The sticky backs of the men would not tear off easily. Overall it was a major bummer!
