Penguin Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
Will make a nice craft for our December and February craft camps.

Bought this as well as several other projects for a cub scout pack meeting.. all of the projects turned out great! I read other reviews of the packets missing pieces, to I made sure to go out and buy extra pieces just in case¿¿¿ but we had all of the pieces we needed.

Missing Important Parts
I love the penguins. They turned out really cute. However, I bought for a class of 24 students. With 6 sets of baggies missing VERY important parts (i.e., the white piece for the face), 6 of my students were unable to complete the ornament making for very sad students and a very disappointed teacher AND parents. The "extra pieces" baggie only included 2 pieces, neither of which were the missing pieces. Very disappointed. I am usually a LOYAL Oriental Trading customer for my students' ornaments every year, but after 3 years of my students' baggies not being complete with all required pieces, I am re-think my purchases next year since my order is usually arounde $50 or more....

Cute and easy!
Great for kids over 6! Younger needed a little hands on help. Very cute when done. We used glue dots. They seem to work well. We did have to sacrifice one for parts.

This is a very easy to do craft that a 4 and 3 year old can do. It was a great price for the quality and quantity you receive. Would absolutely recommend.

This was a really cute craft for the kids. However, because it required glue and the pieces are small, fingers get sticky. Additionally, there were MANY packets that didn't have all the pieces. It's hard to explain to a 4 year old why they have to have a penguin with no eyes!

Not for impatient kids
This craft is cute enough, but it cannot be put together with glue. Plan to have glue dots to assemble it. The sales price was fair, but not really worth the purchase. :(

These penguins are cute! Directions included are easy to understand. My 8 year old put her craft together on her own. Be sure to check each package for all the pieces; some of our packages were missing (important) parts!

Great Kids' craft
I purchased these great little kits for a craft workshop at my church...we had a complex craft for families & needed something simple for the little ones. This was perfect! Very cute, larger than the picture makes it seem so easy for little hands to make. The only down side is that the string used as a loop for hanging this is a slippery material and doesn't absorb glue well, so needs to be clamped somehow while the glue dries or it will fall off. The kids loved these, though, and the price was fantastic!

Great project for 5-7 yr. olds
My 4 year and I had a blast making these for Christmas gifts last year. The parts are in many different colors so he liked being able to make different looking ones for everyone. A lot of small parts so I did have to help him with some parts. School age children would probably be able to do it by themselves.
Sturdy craft and there were no missing parts. (Note for foam crafts without adhesive....just save yourself the bugging of your youngsters wanting to know if the glue is dry yet and purchase the mini glue dots! They work great with no sticky fingers and no dry time)
