Monkey on A Surfboard Craft Kit
Great table craft
This is a great table craft for all attendees. Preferably for kids and adults 7 on up.

I suggest using the larger glue dots for this craft or hot glue gun. Otherwise, the pieces had a hard time sticking together. Very cute outcome and the kids enjoyed it.

I should have read other reviews before purchase...
If I had read other reviews I would have realized these were difficult to assemble. Fortunately we tried to make one before the party so we realized craft glue was not going to work. Plugging in enough hot glue guns for 7 girls to do the project around the same table was a logistical nightmare. My 12 year old daughter and friends had fun with them anyway- but I wouldn't bother to purchase again.

Good craft for party with 6/7 yr olds
I read the other reviews that suggested that people had a hard time assembling these. The way I got this to work out was by using the glue dots that Oriental Trading sells. You still need to help the kids and it was 1 of me working with 10 kids between 6 & 7 yrs. old, but they came out pretty cute. The craft took about 1/2 an hour. It would have been faster with the help of one other adult.

not very happy
I used this product for my 4 year olds birthday party. I didn't realize that you needed glue in order for the peices to stick toghether. It would have worked better with double sided tape. The glue was very messy and everyone had glue all over their hands. The peices kept falling apart so we had to hold each peice togther until the glue was dry enough to let go. Needless to say the 4 year olds got a little impatient and the moms were the ones that ended up doing the craft.

I used these for a monkey themed baby shower. With a few adjustments like: removing the surf board, exchanging the grass skirt for a cloth diaper. Also removing the flower for a male baby shower, or keep it for a female baby shower.
They worked great! They were easy to assemble and looked so cute!

Do not Purchase
This project is very complicated for the age group who be interested in it. You either need a lot of patience with regular glue or be old enough for hot glue. I bought this for a 4 year old party and was not able to use it. Once the child is old enough to assemble this, they are not interested. What a waste of money.
