Glitter Nativity Silhouette Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
We used this craft for a small group (under 12) of students from 1st thru 6th grades at our after-school youth church program. We simply used Elmer's glue. The kids used either their finger, a paintbrush or stir stick to spread the glue and were given verbal step by step instructions. They were able to complete this craft in under 20 minutes. We had 5 adult helpers to oversee, but not much assistance was required. It made a very nice ornament for the kids to take home. Glitter and glue are both a little messy, so take that into consideration.

Very nice project but you must come prepared. Bring plenty of newspaper and cleaning supplies because glitter is messy. Didn't use a glue gun, just plain old glue and it worked great. Used with a class of 15 - 5 year olds and it was really fun. Kids loved it and the finished product was nice.

WAAAAY too complicated and messy
Bought this for a 4 year old class craft. BAD IDEA. Requires hot glue gun to lay down a sticky trim, then you pour LOOSE glitter on the glue and allow it to dry. Then you use the hot glue gun to glue the layers together and again to glue the ribbon hanger on it. WAAAAY to complicated and messy. I thought the pieces were already 'glittered' and were self-stick. Couldn't find much in the description to help me figure it out until I got it in the mail.
