My Bug Jar Craft Kit
Bigger than I thought
I used these for party favors for my son's 1st birthday, and I think they are adorable. The jars are bigger than I thought and you get plenty of pieces to attach to the jar. I like that the kids can actually go home and use them.

used these for a birthday party...
Great product! So easy to use and put together. They turned out looking like the pictures on the site. The kids LOVED these. I highly recommend ordering the "glue dots" to make this a mess- free project! excellent and reasonably priced!

This was purchased for VBS ages 3, 4, 5, and 6. The quality of the kit was very good. The jar was larger than I expected which was great. Easy to put together for me, but may be a little hard for the ages I purchased it for. Overall this was a very cute, nice project and I hope the kids will enjoy catching all kinds of bugs.

We had a Tinkerbell party for our 4 year old daughter and we invited some little boys as well. Making fairy wings isn't appropriate for the little boys so I ordered these bug jars for them. These jars are so cute. Everything comes sorted and ready to distribute. The boys were 3 years old and the parents helped assemble the jars. But, the little ones seemed to like the project and didn't have any problem sticking the decorations to the sides of the cups. Our 12 year old niece also enjoyed the bug jar craft too. This is a great craft for the price! Great for birthday parties and play dates!

Quality exceeds the price
These are really cute and the quality is great for the price. The only problem I had was lining up the holes on the top, but as long as some of the holes match up, the bugs should survive. My son's birthday party will be at a nature center and I'm assembling these to give out as favors in addition to magnifying glasses and gummy bugs that I also got on OT. I'm so excited to give these out!

I purchased these for a buggy party that I am having for my son. We are hiding plastic bugs all around the house/yard and having a bug hunt. The glue dots suggested are a MUST HAVE. I forgot to purchase them here and tried using tacky glue and it was a disaster. So I had to go out and buy glue dots. I wish I had remembered to just buy them here (cheaper). I kept the backing on and turned the foam pieces into "stickers" so they kids simply have to peel and stick! No drying time at all! Also preassembled the top piece because I thought young kids might have trouble lining up the holes. GREAT product, super cute and a great favor! Got the bugs and magnifying glasses from here too. Thanks to Oriental trading for making it easy!

This was a perfect craft for my daughters first grade class. It had few pieces and was easy to put together. it only took them about 10-15 minutes to do with minimum help. Exactly what i needed for her birthday craft.

Do not recommend for under 5 years old!
I purchased the bug jar kits for a craft at my son's 3 to 4 year old preschool picnic. I had my son try and make one prior to the picnic and I'm glad I did. I thought the foam pieces would come with adhesive peel of backs, but they DID NOT! The foam pieces were very hard to glue on and with so many pieces you have to wait for some to dry before you put something else on. In the end, I hot glued gunned all 43 bug jar kits for the kids and just had them put on bug stickers at the picnic. I would not recommend this craft for under 5 years old and you need to make sure you have time for pieces to dry or forget about it!

Great fun for my little ones
This item was perfect for my daughters camping theme end of the year party. She loves searching for bugs in the morning now.
