Fish Catch Game Craft Kit
These little games are very cute. The basic paddle asssembly is easily doable for children. However the Fish requires adult assembly. The holes on the fish and paddle handle are too large so even with a double knot the string would still pull through. I had to knot the string through a bead to keep the knot from slipping. I definitely recommend using the glue dots for the fish fins and tail. Since this is a VBS project with larger classroom size, we will premake the fish and string assembly and children will glue the paddles designs on.

Not what I expected.
I didn't realized that the pieces were not self-stick, but rather required glue. SInce it wasn't self-stick I ended up not using them for a 5-year-old's birthday party. They would have been too complicated, would have required too much supervision, and wouldn't have been dry in time for the kids to play with them at the party. (The glue dots someone mentioned is a good idea.) They would work well for a day care or church group project where this was the focus and for kids 6+ years old. I'm going to see if I can return them.
