Foam Religious Fall Squirrel Magnet Craft Kit
Good project for older children
I would recommend this project for older children. We teach 3 and 4 year olds... and must put the product together prior to bringing it to the meeting. We can allow them to put one piece on. (A few too many pieces to begin with, but other than that it is a great product once completed)

Does not come with pre-sticky pieces. Glue dots needed. Instructions were confusing. Once completed, beautiful presentation, but poor choice for a Fall Festival children's craft table. Sent home with parents with 3 glue dot sheets. Do not recommend for group use without adequate adult supervision. Should have been flagged glue dots needed, and I would not have purchased for an all ages outdoor event. Many children wanted it as it was so pretty, even the older children had difficulties managing glue dots with small pieces.

I used these for my six year old primary church class. I pre-assembled some of the smaller pieces and let them glue the bigger pieces. Talked about being thankful as we went. They really had a blast and it the finished product was was so cute.

I order all my crafts for my Sunday school class and VBS from Oriental Trader and the kids always enjoy doing them.

Can also be NON religious
To use this non-religiously, just omit the sign when assembling. Note that this craft, as stated, is not self-adhesive, which would have made it easier.

I had a church gathering for about 25 kids from 3.5 years t0 11 years. I had teh younger kids buddy with an older child and in that way they were able to get them done. I used glue dots so they could take them home that night and not have to wait for glue to dry. Worked like a charm. Also saves time to punch out foam and seperate each childs kit into a ziploc bag! I repeat...huge time saver! I also pre glued all the leaves and acorns because I knew we only had about 30 mins for crafts. I would definately recomend these. They were too cute and a nice large size.

Run an at home Christian daycare and O.T. is my favorite place to get my crafts! This one was easy enough to assemble for my four year olds, the three year olds just need some easier showing of how to glue the items together. May want to glue the acorns together for them first. Deffinatly a good buy!

I used this craft to teach kids about being content with what God gives us. I simplified the craft for the younger groups by taking out a lot of the leaves and acorns. Instead of holding onto the nuts, the squirrel held onto the sign. The kids loved it! I am saving the other smaller leaves and acorns for another project.

Lots of Small Pieces
We did this craft with our 2nd grade religious ed class and it took awhile to do. We ended up having to finish the craft for the kids. There were a lot of small pieces to glue on and the picture was hard to decifer for where everything went.
