100th Day of School Glasses Craft Kit
I bought these glasses for a group I belong to that is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year. It will be fun to decorate the glasses and wear them at the celebration! They arrived in good shape and in a timely manner.

Cute but tedious
I ordered these for my Grandmothers 100th party cruise. This was an awesome find since there aren't many 100 th birthday party decorations or favors. The large yellow stars do not have adhesive so they would need to be hot glued . I just used the blue and yellow stickers and will use the remainder of the decorations for my kindergarten class or sons class projects.

Hot Glue requirement should have been mentioned!
Just a warning so you are know what you are actually going to get. Be aware that the pipe cleaners and foam stars that go on the pipe cleaners have to be HOT GLUED on.
We used these for a cub scout 100 year birthday celebration. Thank heaven I had ordered additional stick-on foam decorations for the glasses. They were very fun to make but we couldn't use hot glue for our particular activity. I think the age these are geared towards in a classroom setting wouldn't be able to use a hot glue gun either.
I think it should say something about the hot glue requirement in the product description!

Funky 100 Glasses
The kids loved this activity and wearing the glasses.

Difficult to assemble and to keep intact, even for adults. Young children can participate in the assembly a little but not much. The glasses were time consuming but cute, and the children liked them.

Not the best.
There are a number of issues with this kit. First of all, you cannot use the "glue" that is specified. To glue everythig onto these, would make the project take too long in drying time and most of the items would fall off. Second, the sheets of star stickers that come with the product are useless. I ordered 2 gross of this product and every single sheet of stickers could not be used. I wound up spending more money to buy the items needed to help accessorize the items for the kids and then had to come up with a way that things could be taped intsead of glued. The end result was cute, but they were a big hassle in the class room.

I purchased these glasses thinking they would be a great craft activity for my first graders. However, they were far too difficult for the kids to assemble on their own. The pipe cleaners and foam stars needed to be hot glued on and the stickers were VERY difficult to remove from the backing. Overall, very disappointing.

What a pain in the neck. We could not get the stickers to come off. After becoming completely frustrated with the gold and blue stars, I threw them in the trash and bought my own stickers to put on them. And the glasses would not stay on their faces. Wish I would have read the reviews BEFORE I purchased the 100 Day Glasses.

Cute but a pain
You need hot glue. Stickers did not come off. Only used the yellow foam cut outs. Not as cute as the picture. A real pain to put together with 7 year olds.

Not good quality
The glasses turned out very cute, but the foam ear pieces made it difficult for the kids to keep on. The biggest disappointment was the stickers to decorate the glasses. I purchase these kits myself to spare myself a lot of time. But the stickers wouldn't come off the pages - it ook me an hour to pull off the blue backround, and even then the kids couldn't get them off the page themselves. And the gold stickers were worse! I ended up throwing them away and using my own stickers.
