Snowflake Photo Frame Magnet Craft Kit
My students loved putting these together and they turned out very cute! It takes some time because there are lots of snowflakes, but that's the part that they liked. Everyones frame turned out a little different, which was perfect!

not great for small children
I thought these would be peel and stick snowflakes - they are not. you have to glue them. Also the snow flakes are not completely punched out, especially the white ones, the small pieces need to be punched out. another problem was the magnet some of them were peel and stick some needed glue none of them were strong enough to stay on the foam frame without a picture much less with one.

I bought these for my Bark for Life event. We did Canines with Santa. When I took the the frames out of the packages they didn't have a back to them. I had to tape pictures on the frame and I was very disappointed in the frames.

Items were in a bag bent and rolled so that the frames could not be used for students to make a gift.
Foam may bend but frames need to be packaged in cardboard so they don't bend.
Unable to flatten out even with 4 dictionaries sitting on top of foam.

Snowflake Photo Frame
This product has very poor quality. It requires glue instead of double face tape. The packaging is terrible. The frames are stuffed into a plastic bag, as a result they are bend and creased. Overall, not a good choice.

Needs some work
This would be a much better project for a classroom holiday party if they included more magnets for each frame. I would also like it more if the snowflakes had sticky backs already like peel off ones or something. Trying to do it with a glue stick is way too messy.

Buy something else!
I thought these would be perfect for my 6 year old to do and hand out as Christmas presents for family. They were a disappointment. I know "you get what you pay for", but I would prefer to pay a little bit more for much better quality.
1. You have to buy your own glue. We had to make a special trip for foam glue and used nearly the whole bottle on 12 frames.
2. It is literally JUST the frames and snowflakes. I had to buy foam sheets to use as the backing for the frame, and extra magnets also due to the extra weight.
3. My daughter, who loves arts and crafts, was done after the first 2 she did. It's time comsuming, so we did 1 or 2 every day until they were done.
4. The snow flakes were cut crookedly, incompletely, or chopped in half. And most of the frames were folded in the packaging, which makes the craft difficult to do.
There are better kits out there for similar products, choose something else!

Crooked & Mangled Frames
I have not attempted this project yet with my third graders, but decided to open the packaging early to check the product. I am really glad I did. The product is packaged so tightly in a small bag, all of the foam frames are bent, creased, and mangled. If I left it to the children to open up the packaging the day of the project, we would not have been able to complete their parents holiday gifts that same day and have them done on time. We actually needed to take a blow dryer to them to heat them up, then flatten them out. They are sitting under hardcover books over night so hopefully the project can be completed in a few days. Very disappointed.

At least the kids like it
Not the best but not the worst. My chidren enjoyed gluing on the snowflakes. What makes them happy makes me happy.

Good, for what it is.
I have used these frames for my first graders for the past few years. They make these frames as holiday gifts for their parents. They aren't the most sturdy frames, but consider the price. You get what you pay for!
The kids love making these frames. They are easy enough for the first graders to do with little teacher support. Some of the snowflakes do need to be punched out more. I have never seen one of my students get too frustrated over this project.
