Penguin Thermometer Magnet Craft Kit
I purchased these for our annual Christmas craft event at my church. The quality is very good, and the project was easy for children to assemble. However, the backing on the eyes was too hard for the children to take off by themselves and even difficult for adults to remove. Be sure to look for the thermometer and the magnets in the box as they are separate from the foam packets. Next time I would bring glue for the eyes and not even try to remove the backing.

Penguins are Cool
These kits were great. The pieces all had sticky backs, so no messy glue or hard to handle glue dots were required. Kids of all ages loved putting them together. A good size craft as well. Some of the thermometers didn't work...but does that really matter? They are cute, and every kid loves penquins. Extra pieces were nice, but everything was packaged well, we didn't need any spares.

This craft was a pleasure. It was easy to put together in a minimal amount of time. The directions were easy to follow. I teach a 2nd grade class and the kids did a great job with this craft and they enjoyed doing it. The end results were fabulous!

These are very cute when put together and my daughter really liked them. It has a real thermometer that does indicate temperature so it can be a learning tool as well. The only con is some of the pieces didn't stick on very well but I will just use glue or glue dots to keep them on. I'm also going to purchase magnets to stick on the back. Overall good.

This is a really cute project.
I order a lot from Oriental Trading for the 120 favors to go along with Meals on Wheels each month. These penguins are really cute, but the tiny glue strip on the wings and caps is not adequate. Many came off and had to be redone with hot glue. If I were doing it again, I would just go ahead and hot glue the wings and cap while I am gluing the thermometer and magnet. The numbers on the thermometers are tiny, but the idea is really cute.

This was an awesome craft. Everything was good. We did it with our Sunday school class who were 2-3 years of age. Love the real thermometer! We use it everyday.
