Handprint Bat Craft Kit
I'm a room mom, and I needed a fun easy craft for 1st grade. This project was perfect. The kids could do it themselves, and had all of their pieces in individual bags. They turned out great, and the kids had so much fun making them.

Easy to make.
My third grade class used this for a review of Functional Reading: Reading directions. The directions were easy to follow and to assemble. That the pieces already had a backing to remove, to adhere to other foam pieces in the kit, made this a "mess free" and successful craft activity. Great improvement on the prior version of this bat hand craft.

Great craft for school party
This craft is for a 2nd grade school halloween party. It came with crafts individually bagged which will save me prep time. The quality is good. The stick-on pieces are great because we won't have time for glue to dry at the school party. The finished product looked like the picture online. Very cute!

Great for school Halloween party!!
I purchased this craft kit for a first grade Halloween party. The amount of time it took was just about perfect - 15 min. The eye pieces were sometimes hard for the kids to peel off the back in order to stick them on, but a parent helped out so it ended up being fine. Sometimes we needed to use a glue stick for the eyes. They're super cute and the kids liked making them.

Easy to do craft
The craft was great and was actually on sale but the shipping was too expensive and was more than than the actually craft. Therefore I can't recommend it.

Great for class parties
Used this for 2nd grade halloween party. Worked great! The fact that everything was self-adhesive was the best. Made a great craft and keepsake.

Great except for the eyes
I bought these for a 2nd grade classroom Halloween party, and for the most part, it is a great craft. The only reason I didn't rate this 4 or 5 stars is because it was close to impossible to peel off the backing on the googly eyes to stick them on the face. Several of the students had to use tape to stick them on because even us adults couldn't peel them off. If the makers of this would change the backing so that there's a tab or something to help pull it off, then I would give it at least 4 stars.

Cute, but time consuming
Very cute but I definitely underestimated how much work it would take to complete these for my son's preschool Halloween party. The stickers for the eyes were almost impossible to peel so we had to glue them on. Probably better for older, more independent kids.

Fun and easy project
I bought this for a fun family project and everyone loved it! The kits are individually packaged with instructions in each one. Also there was a little package of extra parts if needed and we did need that so I was glad it was included. My only complaint is that we had adults participate, also, and the black foam is too small for 2 adult hands so we had to use 2 pieces (borrow from another kit) but I assume most people will only use these kits for children and the size is perfect for that.

Poor in many ways
I purchased this for a first grade halloween party thinking it was a super cute idea. Well, it is, but that is where the cuteness ends. The craft was very frustrating to complete since the bats didn't stick very well to the moon, the foam was just barely big enough for both handprints, and the eyes were not peel and stick at all! We had to use liquid glue at the last minute and all the eyes smeared and fell off in the childrens backpacks. I am highly unsatisfied and will contact OTC for a full refund. Stay away from this craft, get bookmarks or something instead!
