Patriotic Bug Magnet Craft Kit
This was a fast and fun craft . The older children followed the picture design but the 'littles' became very creative. We laid the finished product in the sun and they dried quickly

Very cute... kids wanted to do more!
I bought these for the 4th of July. My kids (3 and 4) were my "testers". Very cute... they had fun. They are easy to put together and look great!

4th of July Bugs
Kids put these together in no time and they had their own individual look. Not everyone followed the diagrams so they were "originals" Great value and easy to assemble.
Only drawback glue takes to long to dry...highly recommend glue dots for this project.

cute quick project
I made these magnets with my adult day program participants and they enjoyed making them. I liked the fact that there were three choices of bugs. The butterflies went first, but they're all really cute. We have a Patriotic mural on the wall, so a few were added to that and the rest they took home.

Great patriotic craft for my prek class
My 3 & 4 year olds loved making these patriotic bugs as part of their 4th of July crafts. They were easy to assemble and just needed gluing. It left choices for them to decorate the bug in their own sytle. An added plus was we all enjoyed them on our front board all week as a class decoration until they took them home!

great summer activity
These were nice because each kit comes individually wrapped with instructions. Great sequencing activity for kids.

Nice July 4th craft
Its hard to find a cute July 4th craft, so I was happy when I found these. Assembly was easy and fast. The only problem I see is I will need to use a glue gun to attach the antenna to the back of the heads to make assembly more timely, since when using craft glue it takes a long time to dry especially since the wire is crooked.

I bought these for my two boys to do. They both had a great time doing it and even my 2 1/2 yr old was able to do it himself. Instead of the glue, I used glue dots which made it easier for the 2 1/2 yr old. I thought mine didn't come with magnets and I was totally bummed, but then I looked in the box again and there they were!

I bought these to do with my 4 yr old son. We took them to the cabin to keep busy. They were a little difficult for him especially the wire antennas. They would not stay glued on. I had to cut a scrap and glue over the wire on the back. We wanted to make them and leave them on the frig to surprise Gma and Gpa next time they went to the cabin but NO MAGNETS! Their surprise ended up being our surprise, we were too far away to go buy magnets! We ended up bringing them home. :(

These bugs are very cute on its own. I made 48 of them for my patients and gave them for the 4th of July. I modified them by glueing a chenille stem on them instead of the magnet. This way they could be attached to walkers and wheelchairs. All day long the bugs bobbed along with my smiling patients. It was great! Thanks OTC for making this affordable.
