Spiderweb with Spiders Craft Kit
Fun, be careful
You need to have glue, one stick was broken, but able to fix. Ended up a very cute project. Would not give this to under 8 to work on alone.

great looking product
I haven't put these together yet, since I bought them after Halloween, and plan on saving them for the next. I did however open one up to check it out, and was pleased w/the quality, and the fact that everything is self-adhered! I hate it when the kids have to wait for the glue to dry, takes away from some of the enjoyment. So very much looking forward w/doing this project next Halloween w/all the kiddos! OH! And the spiders couldn't look any cuter!

These were better then expected! They were perfect as they came with "glue dots" already on the spiders. The kids could just stick them together with no glue! Great value for the price.

Too hard for little ones
I got these for my son's third grade class, but didn't even bother taking them in because the one I put together as a sample wouldn't stay together. The sticks and eyes are self-stick, but you have to glue the legs on the spider body, which was super messy. I ended up having to break out the hot glue gun, but I can't have 3rd graders passing that around! If the fuzz balls had styrofoam in them so you could just stick the pipe cleaner legs in, that would make it perfect.

Did project with 4th graders. Major complaints are that sticks would not stay together and some of the sticks were broken. In addition, the items were individually packaged but the number of things like eyes and legs were different in each package. Kids were willing to share so it worked out but should have had enough in each package to make two spiders.

Lots of potential, but overall disappointing. The pipe cleaners are just scraps of pipecleaner, I don't see how you can really glue them to the pom so that they will stay. Two of the "webs" out of 12 had defective sticks. I have bought several things in the past and loved them, this was a big flop and if I had it to do over I would not buy them.

Needed glue to keep all parts together, maybe even hot glue would be better

Horrible craft project
The web itself was very easy, but the spiders on the web were very difficult. You need to glue the legs & eyes on the pom-poms. this is essentially impossible. I ended up getting the glue gun out, and pretty much covering the pom-pom with the glue. After it dried the pom-pom looked more like a dried raisen with legs!
DON"T BUY THIS - waste of money!!!!

Difficult for many 9 year olds
I bought this craft for my daughter's 4th grade class Halloween party, and it was a lot more difficult for the 9 year olds than I thought it would be. The kids had trouble keeping the popsicle sticks stable while weaving the string around the first time or two. They also had a tough time gluing the legs and eyes onto the spider bodies. Lastly, they couldn't tie the string off by themselves to make the hanger. It is a fun craft if you have a lot of adults there to help the kids (or maybe for slightly older kids), but very frustrating to these 9 year olds with minimal help.

Cute idea but better kids a little older.
We used these for girl scout Daisies. (K & 1st grade) The girls had a hard time with them. I think if the girls were a couple years older it would have worked great. They are really cute but be prepared to have glue dots on hand. The spiders use plenty since you have 8 legs, body, and eyes to put on.
