Worked with 3 year old. Used glue dots from this site, and came together perfectly. Gave as gifts to teachers & grandparents.

I used this project with my preschool sunday school class (ages 3 and 4). However, I assembled some of the parts before-hand, including the heads, the baby, the hands, and the ribbon because the pieces were very small. But the children were able to assemble the rest. And the parents were delighted with the result. I used glue dots with this project and it worked extremely well because we didn't have to wait for anything to dry. My friend tried making this project in her class with foam glue and it did not work out as well because things did not dry enough before the parents came to pick up the children. You just have to press the glue dots down really well on the foam,

Bought this for a kindergarten Christmas party. The pieces either need adhesive already on them, or glue dots should be included. We used Elmer's and it was a sloppy mess. Most didn't dry in time and we had to send the ornaments home in a baggie. So disappointed!

too complicated for young kids
I normally do not write reviews because I love everything from Oriental Trading. I bought this craft to do with preschool and it is way too complicated for them. The foam is not self adhesive which I dislike because working with glue and foam is so difficult for kids. Not only that but the pieces are so small that it's hard to glue on. Needless to say, I did not end up using this craft at all because I was so disappointed. It may work with older kids 2nd grade and up but definitely not meant for younger kids.

Too many pieces; not adhesive backed.
Too many pieces for young children. Was expecting the pieces to have the self adhesive backing; instead, had to use glue or glue dots. Again, hard for young children.

Kids liked these
Kids liked to put all the pieces together to see their final product. Used to teach about Jesus.

Time consuming craft.
Too many small pieces to punch out. This craft would be less frustrating for children if the pieces had adhesive paper to pull off vs. the amount of glue needed for each piece,
