Halloween Stories Craft Kit
So cute, but needs help
I bought this for my daughter's 1st grade class. The end result is adorable. Getting there was very time consuming. Every double sided tape strip was not sticky. Since this was supposed to be an in class project, the students ended up only sticking on the face. I had to hot glue hands, hats/hair, faces and magnets on to the project, as the double sided tape that was applied by OT did not stick at all. I was very glad that I had opened a package to do one as a sample ahead of time, as I thought the class would be able to assemble everything on their own.

cute; need extra supplies
It is very cute, but you will need extra glue because the sticky strips were no longer sticky.

Cute Halloween Craft
I did this with my 3rd grade class for Halloween during writing time. They chose whether they wanted to put together and write a story about a vampire, witch, Frankenstein, or a cat (I had several cat kits that came with my set and the description of the product said nothing about cat kits, so I was rather pleased). It was easy for the kids to put together, especially with the picture example included with the sets. They were a big hit with the kids and other teachers thought they were adorable when we hung them out in the hall.
My only complaint is the adhesive that is on the head. It is not strong enough, and the stories kept falling down in the hall. I'd recommend stronger adhesive for the head, especially since it's holding up the entire thing, in a sense. Overall, it's a cute craft that I will purchase again.
