Heart Picture Frame Magnet Craft Kit
Just what we were looking for!
Bought these for a craft at our preschool Valentine's Day Family Night. We had stations set up for cookie decorating, games, and this craft. They were easy to put together - didn't require any glue - and preschoolers were able to do this with just a little help from parents! They look very cute when finished. The only problem was that the tape wasn't as sticky as it might have been and I was picking up falling hearts off the floor most of the evening! The price was great, though, especially now that our budget keeps shrinking! I love Oriental Trading! Without them we would not be able to afford our Family Nights!!

An excellent project for young children. Self Adhesive hearts and magnets for the back are a great alternative to requiring glue. Very appropriate for Valentine's day party in kindergarten class. Foam frame was a little flimsy.

Easy to assemble!
This project was easy and quick to assemble. The only problem that we had was the sticky on the backs of the hearts peeled off a couple of times when a 4 year old dug a little to hard to remove the backing. But the project was a real hit! And it looks really nice as a finished product!

Good Valentine craft at preschool
It was simple for the preschoolers. I read other reviews that said the hearts did not stick well and fell off soon after. Ours stuck well. You had to be careful how and where to stick them on the frame since the sticky stuff was only in the middle of the heart. I suggest more stickiness around more of the back of the heart. I disagree with putting the back on the frame before you decorate. It seems easier to decorate it, paste the picture in and then put the back on the frame.

Cute but hearts do not stay stuck on long
The heart frames were super cute and easy to assemble. We gave them as little gifts to the grandmothers and other family and friends and everytime we turned around, another of the hearts had fallen off and not too much longer after that the entire frame fell apart. If you decide to purchase I would recomment adding some sort of adhesive to ensure your frame stays together.

Looks cute but would not recommend
The sticky strips that were meant to stay on, peeled off.... Hard for 5-6 year olds to peel....

I brought these to my son's 3rd grade class and by the next morning they had all fallen off their magnets and lost hearts. Very disappointing.
I bought these for my son's 3rd grade class for Valentine's project. They made them yesterday and by this morning when they returned to the class the sticky tape had given out and all of them fell off the board and many lost hearts. It was very disappointing and wasted class time fixing it.

Such a cute gift idea for the family
These little picture frames are precious. I like that I can put in my daughters picture and place the hearts around it myself. I have not constructed them yet, but I might have to put something else to hold the two frame pieces together since there is only a strip of adhesive on each side.

Hearts did not have enough adhesive to keep them adhered to the frame.

Terrific Alternative to Candy
Bought these in lieu of candy for my daughters kindergarten treat bags. The Price was RIGHT and they were a HIT! The parents commented later how their kids loved making them. I did have to buy separate gift bags to put them in and actually put the magnetic strip (included but was not attached) on the back for them. The hearts came in separate packages so I just dropped them in the bag with the frames. One note: the glue on the hearts was not strong so after my daughter did hers and a few fell out, we just used a glue stick to seal them back on
