"God Is Love" Cross Magnet Craft Kit
I Loved Them
Used with 4 year olds. They were just what we needed for a pretty "take home to mommy" craft they did themselves. Any of the letters that were not printed fully the teacher just used a black magic marker to darken it in. For the price, I couldn't have gone to the time, effort and money to buy the foam and cut them all out myself. We liked them very much. 5 stars.

A little upset
I bought this item for my preschool Choir class and was a little disappointed. The foam pieces didn't want to stick together even after using glue and the magnets were non sticky! I ended up having to use super glue so the kids could take them home. They still loved them and I would tell you if you have some strong glue get them.

Perfect Little Craft
Easy to use, fun to make, especially for little fingers. Even younger kids who don't yet read could see what went where by the color. Great craft.

Kids loved it!
Craft was perfect for the Love concept of VBS. The pre-school and kindergarten kids loved it. They could recognize the letters and the concept. Quite easy to make.

I will buy more
This is an easy craft. I did not find the edges rough as another person had noted. I agree that some letters are not centered and are not printed fully but a black pen can fix that. The foam did not seem to be flimsy as someone else noted. In fact once all the pieces were glued on it was quite thick.
I was concerned about what glue to use on foam. I found that the Elmers white "Glue-All" (School glue) works fine. You don't need to buy tacky glue or rubber cement although I tested them and they also work on it. All three glues needed overnight to dry properly.
I will be buying more of this craft for a Vacation Bible School. But I realize that because they are easy that I may have to have something else for the kids to do to fill the time.

QUALITY IS NOT THERE.
THE CONCEPT IS WONDERFUL! THE ABILITY FOR A PRESCHOOLER IS GREAT. THE EDGES ARE NOT SMOOTH. THE LETTER ARE NOT AS BOLD OR AS CENTERED AS ON THE PICTURE. SOME OF THE HEARTS HAD NO LETTERS ON THEM AT ALL. BUT THE CONCEPT IS WONDERFUL!

OK but flimsy
The pieces were all cut nicely, the activity is simple and fun, but the size of the cross is large and needs to be thicker as it is very flimsy (but the kids didn't seem to mind).

This was an easy craft for 4/5 year olds to do.

I bought this craft for my fifth grade class to make while on a service trip to a retirement home. I liked that it was easy to make and looks neat. I did have two problems, the printed letters were difficult to read and a few of the crosses had not been cut correctly.
