Jonah & the Whale Craft Kit
Since there were so many pieces, I wish that all the pieces were sticky backs instead of having to glue each piece. It was difficult for the kids to have the patience to wait for each piece to dry before gluing on the next piece.

Very good for middle age children
This craft requires glue, It would have been better if it had the removable backing to stick together. However, the 6-12 year old kids loved them. Highlights were the eye and glitter. Be sure to have paper under the project and on the floor, makes clean up much easier.
Some of Jonah's parts did not fit real well, but were usable.
Younger children needed help but loved the finished project. We left them overnight for glue to dry.

I had ordered enough kits for 60 children for VBS, fortunately we didn't have that many children show up, because half of the kits were MISSING PARTS, and it was different parts out of each kit.

This will be a nice take-home reminder from the story of Jonah. I have glad that I purchased it weeks in advance of doing the lesson. The pieces are not self-sticking. I will need to pre-assemble part of the craft in order for my students to handle finishing it within the allotted class period. I appreciate that each set is packaged by itself,

The kids had a great time putting this together. Some of parts didn't quite go where they were supposed to but it was a fun project.

Would not purchase
The craft is put together with a hot glue gun and is not something that would work for a classroom of kids. I like sticker crafts so the kids can put together themselves.

Had to have reshipped
I bought 8 dozen of this craft for a vbs project. I ordered over a month in advance. Received the shipment fast but when I tried to make my example craft the robe for Jonah had oriental trading stamped on the front. It could only be put on this one way. I immediately checked the rest of the dozen in that bag and all of the robes were stamped the same. So I started checking the rest of the shipment and ALL 8 DOZEN were stamped the same. Now I am waiting for the next shipment and hopefully they will be correct because I don't have time for another reship.

We bought this craft several years ago for our small summer camp. It was ridiculous. Every tiny little piece is separate (the clothes, beard, water, etc), and you have to use liquid glue to put it on rather than it being self-stick. All the peices have to be put on in a certain order or it doesn't look right. We had 5-11 year old kids and everybody struggled with it. To this day, all I have to do is mention the "Jonah and the Whale project" and the older kids start to groan. Truly awful; DO NOT BUY THIS THING!
