"Fishers of Men" Bible Craft Kit
our VBS staff used Tacky Glue to put this project together--for kids 8 to 11.

Not sure how to recommend this product. It was time consuming, troublesome to put together. Longer to put together than time permitted in my class. In the past on something similar, the children complained about the project, not enough help to go around to the children. I see this happening again. I will have to start it for them and have them finish. Overall, not really highly recommended for 3rd-5th graders. I do love the item, but my Sunday School will not be thrilled by it.

"Fishers of Men" are known by the children. They will understand it.
The children will probably enjoy talking about going out on a boat and fishing. Hopefully they will discuss the real meaning.

I made this with my 2/3 grade class for Sunday school. Recommend this craft for 8 years and up. Had them glue the craft onto a large sheet of blue construction paper. We used glue dots. I let them design as they wanted such as no girl or no boy. The kids loved it and it came out nice.

Not worth your time
I did not appreciate this craft. It needs to be clearly marked that it is not self-adhesive. They should not even offer it without it being self-adhesive, I want some store credit for this purchase. There were also fishing poles missing in several of the craft packets and for the 1st graders this craft was difficult even the adults had a hard time making the crafts actually look like they were suppose to.

this craft was very hard to do. the kids got irritated. missing some of the fishing lines and took much longer than expected. even my youth helpers had problems. would only recommend for older kids.

It was pretty good but they come in packs of 12 and i only got 9 in each pack when i called to get another 2 packs they still sent 2 packs of 9 instead of 12 then when it was time to put them together they were all missing the heads and the arms!!

One of the tougher foam projects
This one is cute, but really aimed at older kids. Some things look strange if you put them on backwards, and there is a definite order to the way this needs to be assembled. This isn't great for preschool maybe 1st grade & up.
Order extras. We had many come with issues. Broken fishing poles, missing pieces, bad printing on the verse, and ink spilled all over some pieces was common. A pack of 12 is really a pack of 11 by the time you do the necessary substitutions.
Kids and parents BOTH love the finished product, though.
