Heart Sticker Foil Activities
Great result, nonexistent directions
Hello! This comes without any instructions. I had to go back to the product description and reviews to figure it out. Peel away the sticker paper on the part you wish to color. Then place the foil over that color side up and rub to apply color. Remove foil and color adheres to any exposed sticky paper.
There is so much room for variety and creativity with this craft and the only mess is the sticker peel and used up foil pieces.
With only a light rubbing, the foil will adhere. The better you rub, the more thoroughly color sticks. But even with the best rubbing, flecks of white background show through. Result is more of a glitter look than solid foil. Still pretty though.
Cardboard hearts etc would need to be glued onto a paper card if child plans to give as valentine. They are not self adhering. However, child could simply sign the back side. Or you could put the hearts, xoxo on sticks and make a pretty non perishable bouquet. Hang them as a mobile...Like I said, lots of room for creativity.
Older kids will enjoy (parents too). preschoolers need help. And I'm telling you it's not the kind of craft you can let young child do and it turns out cute because of the crude work. I mean, you could take off all the adhesive peel first, but you would still have to explain which side of the foil to press down.

Wouldnt recommend for the craft itself
I bought this craft to do with my kids. I decided to try it out before introducing it to the kids, so I would know what to do. You are suppose to "color" the shapes with the foil. I tried to do it and the color just barely shows. I would not recommend this for this craft. But I plan on making some kind of craft with the items. So its not a total waste!

Too difficult for younger children
This was too difficult for younger children (6 and under). It would have been helpful if directions were included.
