Frog Card Holder Paper Bag Craft Kit
Just Wonderful Project
I brought these for my preschool class for Valentine's Day. The students just them and really enjoyed putting them togather. They where easy to put togather and they dried vary quickly. The only thing that I didn't care for is that the bags handles had to be put on. Other than that they turned out very cute.

WAY too complicated
I bought these kits as Valentine bags for my son's 2nd grade class to make during their Valentine's Day class party. They are RIDICULOUSLY complicated. I tested out putting one together the night before and it took me nearly an hour. I knew the kids would have trouble, so I did my best to modify the steps and we left the back legs off (they could not have transported them home with the legs on anyway). This is an incredibly stupid design. The glue (I bought Elmer's Craft Bond Quick Dry Glue, which specifically says it works for foam) did not work at all. Nothing stuck, everything kept falling apart. We ended up taping a lot of pieces back on at the last minute. We had 5 adults helping 25 kids and it was still crazy. The fact that the bags don't even come with the handles attached just adds to the insanity of this craft. I got these on sale, which is why I marked the price average. I just cannot believe how ridiculous this process was. DO NOT BUY these.

Will never purchase or recommend
the bags tear with regular holding. Glue wouldn't stick to the bags so legs, arms, tongue and handles would fall off. I tried 4 different glue and nothing would hold to the shiny surface of the bags. There is no way these bags could hold any weight

Very Poor Construction
I was very disappointed with the quality of this craft. I bought these for my students to use for their valentines holder. The bag is very flimsy and rips easily. When you attach the legs to the bag, there is no way for the bag to sit up on its own. I ended up modifying the craft so that the bag could sit on its own minus the legs. Maybe if this craft was made out of different materials, sturdier materials, it would work better.

cute but wouldn't stay together
I bought this for a 3rd grade valentines day craft. It really is darling, but unfortunately all of the foam cutouts and any other attachment needs to be glued on to a very flimsy bag. The other parents and I had to staple the entire thing together basically. It was more of a project for us than the kiddos. Again, it does look nice when it's finished but glue will NOT do the trick.

Very hard to put together for my 3rd Graders
I ordered three of these bags. The heart and monkey versions were not too bad. But the Frog design was a little
bit too complicated for my students.

Cute but poorly thought out
This was for my daughters Kindergarten class and prior to going I assembled a good portion of it and then glued theirs with a hot glue gun because it would assemble otherwise. The bags were poor quality; as I pulled them apart from shipping some of the green peeled off. The bags were too flimsy to attach the handles that were too short, so when attached they just ripped the bag. The idea and final product were cute but it took some modification on my end. The kids and parents were thrilled with the end result it was just getting there.

The cuteness took away from the flaws
I purchased these bags as treat bags for my daughter's 3 yr old preschool class Valentine 2012. They were absolutely adorable after the finished project! I went out and brought red and white gift bag tissue to stuff after I filled them with candy and toys. These bags were a raving hit as my husband and I brought them into the school. The size is big aslo which wa a plus! Unfortunally there were a few flaws.... the bags were extremely flimsey and seemed as if they had gotten wet at some point which left spots on them, there were also missing parts like the eyes.... just a caution these bas are extremely tedious, they come with several pieces to put togther so clear your day if preparing for an entire class. I had 16.... In the end I was very pleased with the complete project.

Not the best
Sacks are way too flimsy, fall apart
Skinny little cord does not staple well enough to the sack.
Many of my students' projects handles fell off.
Quality not good on this very cute idea
