The Lord's Prayer Craft Kit
I was disappointed that the children, cat, and bird had to be assembled.
I was hopeful that there would be less small parts so that my 4-5 year olds could put this together themselves. I have assembled mine to the point that they only need to add the prayer sheet and then add the characters to finish it. Makes an excellent craft that would remind students of the lesson and a nice incentive to learn The Lord's Prayer.

Nice craft for larger group
I used this craft with a group of around 20 children. I was concerned that this particular group, who are VERY creative and individual, would be unexcited using a kit in which they might feel they all had to do it the same. Not to worry! Have you ever seen a cat with a hairpiece? The children will find their own way to be creative. One thing I would highly recommend is the use of glue dots, rather than white glue (and glue sticks won't work on craft foam). The larger glue dots are perfect for affixing the larger pieces, and the mini glue dots for smaller pieces like hair bows, Jesus's mustache, the bird's wing, etc. (The dots can be purchased through Oriental Trading. Be sure to take a couple minutes to teach the kids how to properly use them before you set them loose.) Order additional kits because you will get one or two kits out of 12 that don't have all the pieces. (That's why I rated a 4 instead of 5 for quality.)

Our girls love this craft so much, they made extras to give to their friends. They have even learned the prayer from it! I highly recommend it!

cute craft, but poor quality
Cute craft but too many pieces missing, pieces with small punch holes, pieces with smudge marks. Too hard for 5 year olds. Better suited for 7 and up. Quality control must have been on vacation.

I bought this for Sunday school. The kid's ages range from 3-6. Each child need personal attention. Glue got every where. These took a long time to finish. As, I help each child I was wishing the pieces were adhesive.

Needs glue and takes too much time to prepare for class.

Too much gluing
I think they need to make it stickers for this one. The kids had too much glue on there hands that I have to make a group to go the bathroom. We cannot go to the bathroom during class time. The parents did not like this one at all.

I am a teacher of special needs religious ed so I needed to do quite a bit of pre-assembly. Also we're Catholic, so I chopped off the last 2 lines of the prayer before gluing it on the foam backing. It's super cute though - great product and a fun way to reinforce the Lord's prayer.

This was a cute craft. There were a lot of little pieces, so there was a little confusion but overall was really fun. Make sure you get some craft glue, as glue sticks do not work very well with the foam pieces. Also, a hole punch might be nice for the hanging ribbon, rather than gluing it, so it lasts longer.

I was under the mistaken impression that this was a self-stick project (as it seems most projects are on OT). It was NOT. I ended up sending the project home, so hopefully the parents would do it with their kids. I did with my 3 and 5 year old and it took a good 30 min to figure out all the pieces and where things go and then assemble. Lots of little pieces. Glue is needed, so it was more messy than I thought it would be. I liked the concept and they are cute, but I wish it had been self stick, rather than a gluing project.
