Nativity "Joy" Door Hanger Craft Kit
Nursing Home Treats
Wow! Lot's of parts. Be sure you have a lot of time to complete. My kids enjoyed putting them together, but it was taking so long that I finished them with a glue gun.

Adorable. Know the kids and parents will love it.
While this is an adorable craft, I wish that OTC would have used one printed foam piece for each Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus rather than have Mary and Joseph consist of four pieces and two pieces of Baby Jesus that have to be glued together. It would be cuter and much easier if each character was printed on its own foam piece as they do for some other craft kits. As it is, we have to pre-assemble Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus for the younger students. :(

Okay, but not great
I bought this for my child's class at school. I decided to make one of the crafts prior to having the children do it. Good thing, because I learned what to do and what not to do.
First, I chose to use a glue stick. Worked fine.
Secondly, Mary's face looks quite large compared to Joseph's. It's the way they use a beard to cover most of Joseph's face - he looks normal, she doesn't.
In addition, I chose to leave off the jingle bells. I have no idea how you can attach those unless you invest in the glue dots.
It took me about half-an-hour to assemble the craft. That's with kids running around and life happening, so give or take a few minutes!

Very Cute; Ribbon a little too short
These make a nice reminder: Jesus Others Yourself as well as a nice decoration. Hard to get the bows and bells to stick--use glue dots for that part.

...one more thing...
...forgot to mention in previous review ... make sure to loosen the small ball in the tiny bell once the glue dries.... Also, the parent's of our Sunday school kids really LOVED these once the glue dried and the kids brought them home, it is a CUTE design!!

Pretty good choice
I purchased these sets for a Sunday school "fill-in" activity for the Sunday the teachers were off. The quality of each kit was good, only one was missing one piece and I got lucky in finding an extra packed in the box from O.T.C. --- This has many, many small and easily "messed up" pieces (such as gluing the baby Jesus' face to the white covering -- easy to get it crooked or off center) so I recommend "Pre-assembling" some of it ahead for the littlest kids to work with. Also, with so many small pieces, it was hard to keep going in the one-hour window as much of it should have dried ahead, but the older kids' sets turned out pretty nicely anyway!!

Good craft for class. Be sure to have enough time to let the glue dry.
