Penguin Snow Measuring Stick Craft Kit
I purchased 2 sets (24) for the Kindergarten Holiday Party and they were a hit. The teacher thought it was a great idea. I suggest using glue dots, small for the numbers and large for the rest. Out of the 24 only 2 were missing a number but we had extra. The kids can't wait to use their rulers.

We got this craft pack for our annual holiday craft party. At least 6 of the kits were missing pieces. Thank goodness we had enough parts in the two kits that were not needed. I will definitely think twice the next time I got to order one of the kits.

Not so great
I purchased these for my third and fourth grade students. The numbers are really too small to glue on, so I would suggest just writing them on. The sticks were warped (slightly bent) and the white paint on some of them looked dirty and chipped. The kids loved the idea and had fun decorating. We used white glue but in the future I would use hot glue for the head (its wood not foam like I originally thought).

Great for Preschoolers
I purchased these for our play group with children ages 2-4 and with the help of moms and the use of glue dots (VERY IMPORTANT) these were a hit. This project would have been a disaster with real glue. Buy the mini glue dots- they are the perfect size for those tiny numbers.

very cute and the kids loved putting it together but out of 24 penguins more then half of them were missing something out of the package and they do not send you enough extra pieces. We had the kids write the numbers with markers which ended up saving time anyway.

just what I needed
I really just needed the stick as craft sticks were too short and rulers cost too much. Worked fine for what I needed.

These were used for my sons winter party at school...we didn't even bother with the numbers, we had them write them on...I'd say if you don't bother with those, it is a fun easy project...I even set out jars with fake snow so they could test them after they were done making them.

nice easy craft
bought 2 sets (24) for my daughters 3rd grade valentine party....were missing a few numbers, but no biggie,,, the kids just wrote the number with a marker. Very nice craft for the price- the kids even got "inventive: with the scarf....firmly recommend using glue dots, especially for the pompoms for earmuffs-

Missing parts but also adorable
Lots of missing parts. out of the 24 I purchased could only make 21 because of missing heads,numbers,etc....
It was really really cute when finished. It's more of a keep on a shelf for cute decoration craft. Can't be used outside to actually measure the snow.
