Handprint Peppermint Keepsake Christmas Craft Kit
The kids loved doing these and the parents loved them just as much as the kids loved doing them

I used this as a holiday gift from my class of 2 year old to their parents. I liked that it was a generic holiday item & not just a Christmas one. I thought the piece for the handprint could have been larger as my bigger students's hand barely fit. Rember my class is two year olds.

I purchased these as the room parent for my son's class as a holiday craft. The quality was horrible. Each one was a different shade of red and the printing on the center circle was not the same alignment or shade on any of them. Also they were packed so tightly that the hanging strings left indentations on a lot of the foam pieces. The paint for the handprints was really gooey and took forever to dry. I didn't open them until just before the party or I would have tried to return them.

I bought these ornaments for my 6 and 7 year old to make for xmas presents. Unfortunately their hands did not fit on the piece to make the handprint, although this says for ages 5 and up, it really can only be used for children with small hands. Now I have to scramble and come up with a new idea with only a week left before xmas.

I liked this project so much that I bought it again this year. I sent this home as one of my holiday gifts in my TK class. The completed project is adorable and the parents were very happy.

my girl scout troop enjoyed it!
I was not overjoyed with the product. WHile it was cute, the lettering was smuged on some of the ornaments, not sure if it was worth the price. Once I had the product in hand, it seemed slightly overpriced to me.

Love the idea. The paint was a little thick at first. After a couple of mishaps they turned out really cute. Fun easy project

Cute Idea-Bad Execution
This is such an adorable keepsake. That said, the foam sections for the handprints were so small that my 3 year olds hand could barely fit. I had to cut larger ones for my daughter's 1st grade class to use. The paint was super-runny, so we had to replace it with paint we had in the classroom. We added a little, candy-striped ribbon off the center of the peppermint and added the child's picture. Great for kids under 3, but if you have older ones, I would make your own version using foam from the craft store.

Not like the pictures
The paint included with this is poor quality and not a bright red like the picture at all. Also, it is recommended for ages 5 and up but I don't think a 5 yr old hand will fit on the foam pieces. My 3-year-old son's barely fit. The printing was faded and not straight on many of the cut-outs so we could only make 6 of them. Disappointing.

Best gift for parents
This project is definitely for children with small hands, 3 - 4 year olds. I also wrapped it in clear cellophane and tied red ribbons between the handprints and center circle piece. It looked just like a real peppermint candy! The parents LOVED this keepsake. Something I will do each year! All the kids could do was make the handprints, an adult is need to assemble it. I also use hot glue to put it all together. Fast and easy!
