Owl With Movable Arms Craft Kit
Purchased for Children's Church. The owl is VERY flimsy and I'm still looking for the adhesive backing I was instructed to "peel off." Very disappointed in this project. :(

the description was incorrect, it said it came with the adhesive backing to make assembly quick and easy (for children). There was no adhesive on the back of the pieces! The directions for each piece even stated to take off adhesive, THERE WAS NONE. Very disappointed!

Instructions are flaky!
I run a storytime for 50 toddlers. Thank goodness I opened these the day before. What I thought was a "peel and stick" craft (and according to directions was supposed to be). so I knew to set the kids up with glue. But, why do the directions say to "peel off the backing and stick" the pieces? What kind of quality control is this?????

We used this craft for a movie program for children. The color and vibrancy of the owls are great. The size is much larger than I expected (about the size of a sheet of paper). The problem comes when you try to use the instructions. It states there is a sticky backing on the light colored paper sheets. If there is, I was unable to find it. As were the other two adults working with me. Also, there are holes punched in the owl for the brads, but I found an extra one in the area where you attach the head to the body. The instructions state to "adhere" the head piece to the body. The reality is that the manufacturing has left you a brad sized hole where the head and body would meet.
I found that to be confusing.
Overall, it comes out as a beautiful craft for children learning about wildlife. Just beware how the instructions can seem misleading. We found using glue dots and stick glue to be very beneficial in constructing our owls.
