Inchworm Valentine Craft Kit
Great project with many to create
Got this kit for my nephew, he created some at home and took the rest to school for his classmates to make. Cute project would buy again.

I purchased these for my 1st graders Valentine's party. I read the other reviews and was very thankful for the tips! I bought a bunch of glue dots and had most of the prep work done before hand. I also ended up using glo-sticks so we made glo-worms and that worked a lot better than the pipe cleaners. They were a big hit!

USE GLUE DOTS!!
I bought this craft for my son's valentine class party. It was a perfect craft and the kids enjoyed it. The only thing you need to pay attention to is the type of glue you use to assemble. Do NOT use traditional white glue - you'll only make a mess and end up hating the craft. Buy glue dots! It makes it super simple for the kids to assemble and there is NO drying time needed. It would be absolutely sublime if they started to supply glue dots with the craft to make it a COMPLETE kit!

I got this project for my son's class and it was terrible! I tried it the night before and the pieces are tiny and impossible to glue one. Even though it was a cheap, it was money thrown away because that's pretty much what we did with the kit. Not worth your money, time, or effort.

Too hard to put together
I bought these for a 6-7 yo party which had 4 yo at it. They were way too hard for them to use and even when the moms tried to help, they still didn't come out looking that great. Plus, you had to glue everything on.

Pieces too small. Pompoms don't glue well.Long drying time

Impossilbe Craft for children & adults
I tried to do one of these in advance of a party at school. It was impossible for me to get the glue to stick, the body to fold properly. I am an experienced craft person. These would have been impossible for my daughters class.

Very cute but time consuming
I bought these for my child's 1st grade class to do during a party. When I realized the time constraints, my daughter and I decided to do them at home and give them as favors. You must, must, must plan extra time and do things in cycles to complete w/o everything falling apart. We did heads, antennae and bodies all separate and allowed all to dry overnight b/f putting them together. Also, it is best to use a hot glue gun b/c w/just regular craft glue or Elmer's, the head and antennae will fall right off. They are darling once put together and we had a lot of fun doing it once we realized it couldn't all be done at once.
