"I Love Reading" Snowman Bookmark Craft Kit
I got this for my daughter's 1st grade class they had a ball. It was very easy for them to
put together. We used the tacky glue that made it so easy and it is so fast dryingand less messy then regular glue.

Great decoration, not flat enough for a bookmark
Bought this for my son to make for his teachers. It is adorable and would be a wonderful decoration, but it really is not flat enough for a bookmark.

Very Difficult Project, even for older kids!
I bought these for a craft activity & thinking they'd encourage them to read but it was very difficult to assemble. I tried making one at home before hand so the kids get an idea of how it will turn out. I found it hard to even put glue on. There are too many components. This product does not have pre-glued adhesives. You'll have to put it on yourself. Not a good idea for a party that last about 1 hour. Some of the pieces don't fit properly together, even trying to turn it at different angles. Don't buy this if you have an event where time is a constraint and especially if you don't want glue everywhere.

Not real great for 1st graders
I purchased these for my daughters 1st grade class. They would have been great but some packages didnt have all the pieces and some had too many. The pieces didnt seem to fit together very well and it would have been a lot easier if they were the sticker pieces.

These are really cute, but they do need to be put together with a glue gun. I didn't even attempt doing it without. That meant I ended up doing most of them for my 7 year old.

Too hard for kids
I bought these to make with my son's 4th grade class and it is way too hard. They made a big mess and it ended up being a big waste of money. If you are doing with older children it is better since it is not self sticking and you need to use glue.

Challenging but fun!
Faced with a 2nd grade classroom full of over-achievers, I found this bookmark to be challenging enough to keep their attention and a fun way to encourage them to enjoy reading too! Yes, the construction was a bit difficult because the weather was too humid for the glue to dry quick enough. But we did it with a heavy application of glue sticks and it worked just fine. We finished with a classroom of proud children......that was, afterall, the goal. I encourage anyone who does this craft to make one up before hand to know what to expect from the product.

This was way too hard for 2nd graders to put together. There is too much glue necessary and it is continually falling apart. I would not recommend it even for older kids. I had a hard time putting it together.
