Religious Candy Cane Ornament Craft Kit
All the pieces were there. Taking into consideration the age of the children and my time constraint I chose to put parts of each kit together ahead of time. leaving 6 parts for the children to do. I suggest the use of glue dots instead of regular glue or glue sticks. The mini glue dots worked very well. I used large candy cane sticks instead of candy canes. Using the glue dots enable the children to remove the star and the manger from the candy and glue them in the wall in their room for an individual reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.

Perhaps 7-10 year olds could do better
This piece needed lots of glue drying time between steps. It was a little over the heads of 5-year-olds and would be better for 7-8 year olds.

cute but not simple
I'd say this isn't for kids under 8 or those easily frustrated. We wanted our creations to last, so we used the shiny PLASTIC full-sized candy canes that Dollar Tree sells. Finished craft is very cute.
