Reindeer Antler Headband Craft Kit
I purchased these for my preschool students to wear at a Christmas program. They are really cute and the children loved them.

Reindeer Antlers had Missing Pieces
There were pieces missing and unmatching pieces. Some had bells, some didn't. I purchased 36 of these and 1/3 of them were missing things.

We bought these at my work for the children to make at our annual Christmas party. However, when we received them, most of the small bells were rusted and since they sat in the bags so long they contaminated and made rusty a lot of the other pieces included. Not worth your money or the effort of putting it all together.

Cute but difficult
When the headbands were done, they looked adorable on all the kids: Group of kids between ages 5 and 10.
However, .I had to hot glue the bells and the straps on the night before because there was no way the kids would be able to get the bells to stick with glue and the handbands would not have dried quick enough to wear them the same night. Not to mention that regular glue most likely would not have held. It would have been nicer if they were self adhesive as well. The glue dots worked well, but regular glue---not so well. Cute when done, but I would not order again.

Bought 24 for class project. Out of 24 - 8 packages had missing parts. Oriental Trading worked to fix the problem. The ones we got put together looked darling for singalong.

We are hosting a Breakfast with Santa and chose the reindeer antler kit as our craft. I will be very anxious to see how they turn out. They were purchased using the reviews of previous purchasers.

good project, plan ahead
I did this project with my kindergarteners, I wish I had used the glue dots!!!! we used glue sticks which worked okay with everything until we got to the headbands (fasteners). I did go through and sort all of the pieces and gave out only the few pieces we were working with (antlers and forehead first, then ears and fur, then holly and berries) - this made it much easier for the kids. I am planning to purchase more for next year and this time I'll be more prepared with the glue dots!!!

Great for Preschool
This was a wonderful craft project for our preschool kids to do. The tounger (2 YR OLDS) needed help and all the children needed supervision but the antlers turned out great. BUT, use the glue dots, not glue with this project or any form project, SOOOO much easier if you do and you can put it all together in far less drying time.

Glue Dots are a Must
A little expensive for a large group of kids. I did this craft with a group of preschoolers. I went through ahead of time and put glue dots on all the pieces (left the glue dot paper on the back so the pieces became like stickers). It was a lot of extra work and used a whole package of glue dots. With the dots, the pieces stayed together and it was a great craft. However, I think this would be a mess with regular glue. "Touch fastener" means they come with a piece of velcro and not that these are self adhesive pieces.

Cute, kids loved it
I needed glue dots and hot glue guns to complete this kit for our 5 year old Girl Scout Troop. The girls loved the project, but the moms had to do most (75%) of the work. I am glad I read the reviews of this before I made it,
