Holiday Slap Bracelet Craft Kit
Great Craft Idea
I really liked this product. It gave my nephews and even me a great time. It was very easy and the clean up was quick. But the quality time together that it gave us was amazing. And when we were done they wore them all day and even showed them off to their neighborhood friends. My nephew wants to now make one for all the kids in his class!

I bought this for my 5 yo in Kinder and my 4 yo preschooler. While the Santa is more difficult than the reindeer, my 4 yo was able to make it with my supervision. My 5 yo was able to make the reindeer by herself after I helped her with the first one. Use FABRIC GLUE!!!! I used Aleen's stretchable fabric glue on them and they've held up through my daughters wearing them to K and preschool and having their friends play with them. The glue took a while to dry, but that is the way that felt is.

cute, but cheaply made
These bracelets come out very cute, but the Santa is very difficult for children to assemble. I also thought the quality was extremely poor. The bracelet is made of a broken tape measure covered in fabric. My son slid the tape measure part out of his bracelet and cut his finger badly on the sharp edge. I would not buy these again.

I needed slap bracelets for another project but didn't want to pay $2 ea. These fit the bill perfectly for my project (holders to put around my embroidery stabilizer when I'm not using them). I didn't need (or use) the little santa or reindeer pieces included in the kit; I just wanted the slap bracelets. So to get 12 (per kit) for $2, I'm thrilled. In fact, I bought 4 sets (total of 48 slap bracelets) for about 30 cents a piece (price of the kits plus shipping). Sometimes thinking 'outside the box' when you have a chance to buy something at a great price, really pays off. It did for me!

Sad Second Graders
I used this craft in place of a gift exchange. The students had difficulty putting the faces together. We used elmers glue. The next day after they had time to dry, the face popped off. The students were very upset.

Recommend gluing the santa and reindeer small felt parts ahead of time to allow the glue to dry. Then the kids can make it without getting frustrated.

When we tried to glue the decorations to the bracelet they would not stay on no matter what we did. We used regular Elmer glue to glue the pieces but I don't think hot glue would have worked either. The class got very frustrated and disappointed.

Not for 1st graders!
These were purchased for a 1st grade party and were too difficult to assemble. Mainly because it's too hard to glue felt to the material of the slap bracelet. The reindeer kit was definitely easier than the santa kit, but they were falling apart all day. We used tacky glue and still had problems. The only reason we made it through this activity was by having about 10 moms there to help! Definitely don't recommend for 6-7 year old kids!

SLAP ME SILLY
CUTE! I used these for a 1st grade classroom activity. It required a hot glue gun to securely attach some of the smaller parts (i.e. the eyes, nose, pom poms). So I would suggest several parent helpers to help move it along. Overall, very easy and the kids LOVED slapping those bracelets!

Holiday Slap bracelet
Our fifth graders really enjoyed them. Had great fun. And at their age, they were able to manage the glue gun with little damage to their fingers.
