Spring Bird Ornament Craft Kit
Really cute & fun for the kids
These are absolutelyadorable once completed, and each child could choose which color they wanted to make. The end result was very satisfying for everyone. The only thing I would complain about is the price -- it's all paper, a tiny bit of foam and ribbon, so that's a little more than one should have to pay for a paper project.

Cute and easy to assemble
With a glue stick, this craft was really easy to put together. I had my almost 4 year old help me, though this craft required that I did most of the work of course.
The paper that makes the bird body is not very thick so be careful not to bend or rip it.
It came with extra pieces, which we didn't end up needing but I have stored for future crafting.
The eyes are self-adhesive and I had my daughter peel off the backing, which she did easily enough. The felt button "feet" are also self-adhesive.
We did not need a glue gun and they have not fallen apart by any means.
For the price, $5.99 - it seemed a bit steep for what you get since it's just paper and a bit of felt.
Overall, they came out really cute and we've hung them around the house as well as on our "tree" that we have, where we put a tree branch in a vase and decorate it. Since Christmas is over, we've decorated it wtih these birds and hearts for Valentine's Day. It looks great.

My girl scout troop makes crafts with a retirement center. The girls picked these cut birds. We always pick self adhesive crafts to do with the members of the retirement center. These birds only had four pieces that were self adhesive the button feet and eyes. The craft was made out of paper and I thought it was made out of foam pieces. For the price this craft was expensive and we had to use a glue stick. Very disappointed!

Priced Too High...
I was disappointed to see that the birds were made from paper. I figured they were made out of that spongy colored material. I should have read the description better. The birds are adorable, I just wish they were made out of something else more durable.

Fun and cute!
Fantastic craft. Easy to put together (though could be a bit sticky with the glue painting...) and it looks great. I put these in my daughter's room for spring and she just loves them.

Cute, but pricey
I used these for a Daisy girl scout meeting. The project was simple and turned out pretty cute, but it was pricey, considering that it was made from mostly paper. I used white glue, but a glue stick would have worked just fine. I liked that the birds were not all the same color - kids could do more than one without being bored.

Good but not for Little Kids
These turned out really cute, but the kids age 3-6 needed a lot of help putting these together and got frustrated. Best for kids a little older, but really cute once complete!
