"Mom's Memos" Board Magnet Craft Kit
great multi age activity
This product was used in a 5th and 3rd grade classroom. I had read the reviews about the white board not wiping off so I laminated each to put a different surface that I knew would wipe off easily. This seemed to work. The project went together without difficulty for both grade levels. Tacky glue and Elmers glue worked fine. Kids had a great time and each design was very original, no two memo boards were the same. All but one packet out of 24 had markers. Every packet contained all of the appropriate materials. Very little mess. A great success!

NOT what you pay for
In the description it says you get a "magnetic frame"- you actually get a piece of foam and a small strip of magnet that you have to glue on the back. It also says that it comes with a "memo board and black dry erase marker"- you actually get a flimsy piece of thin white plastic (many of mine were bent/scratched on arrival) and a dried out marker. Nothing would wipe off of the white plastic. None of the foam pieces were self-adhesive. Very disappointing...

Not Worth It!
I bought this item for my second grade classroom for Mother's Day. I do not feel these were worth the money. The little white boards would not stick down to the foam padding no matter how much glue we used. Also, the mini white boards were scratched up when I received them. Some of the markers did not work. Very disappointed and will not buy this project kit again!

These boards turn out well. They are quick to put together. I was disappointed that 3 of my kits were not useable because the markers opened and the ink went on everything in the bag.

Looks cute, but doesn't work as a memo board
The marker doesn't write well on the board, and what it does write, doesn't come off easily. Other dry erase markers don't work well either. I also didn't realize the letters and flowers need to be glued on: these don't have adhesive backs.

The marker doesn't write well on the white plastic where you're supposed to write on plus you'll need wipes or a wet papertowel to wipe off what you've just written with a little bit of pressure because it doesn't come off easily. I'm thinking of removing the white plastic and marker and just give it as a picture frame craft instead.
