Paper Plate Menorah Craft Kit
not as described
My kit arrived with paper (not foam) candles. You must use your own glue in order to stick the candles to the menorah, as, there is also no self adhesive, as described. The poem is also printed on paper and is larger than pictured. The poem takes up the whole front of the menorah, if used. Overall, a disappointment in quality. Not worth the money. If i wanted this quality, I could have used my own construction paper and paper plates.

Fun craft for 5 yr olds
Made these with my son's Kindergarten class & they were really into it. They are cute & instructions are easy to follow. Takes a bit of fine motor to get the pieces into the right place so I passed on them for my younger daughter. Marked down on quality because the glue didn't hold up very long -- reinforced with super glue or tape & they've stayed together nicely. Had my son's hanging in my window for weeks!

I teach preschool and use Oriental Trading all the time without any problems. I chose this craft because it looked easy and would be great to make a project for the students in my class that celebrate Hanukkah and not Christmas.
The assembly was difficult for students and teachers alike because the flames adhesive did not work. They gave you small pieces of adhesive foam to use one the back of the flames so they would stick however, they did not keep the flames on either. The pop-sticks were brightly colored but too heavy (even when spaced apart) for the adhesive strip to keep them on. We assembled them all, using glue and tape to help but in the end they slowly fell apart on our walls. Very upset and will not buy again!
