Thumbprint Ladybug Paper Craft Kit
I'm so happy that I brought this item. We're having each child make their own to put around our birthday banner for the school year (I work at a year round program). Even though I had to staple the antennaes on, they came out perfectly. I plan on purchasing more for the years to come. Great buy!

Thin paper, but nice project
Paper was thin, so it was hard to keep the wings in place until glued. Project came together quite quick, so it was nice to get the kids to use the ink for the dots using their finger prints. The ink washed off fingers very nicely. The antennas would not stay on with glue. They had to be taped on. Also, because the paper was so thin the outline of the antennas showed through on the front side of the head.

I was not very happy with the quality of this product. I could have made them myself and they would have been just as nice or nicer. The kids liked them and I guess that's what matters.

Great Quick, Cheap Craft
This set was inexpensive, easy and eye catching. Suggestion for even quick and easier use... staple the antenna to black body 1st. Then use a small amt of glue to attach the wings over the staples to hide them. Allows for a 2 min drying time rather than a huge mess of glue!!

I was very disappointed. It was just very thin paper. I bought it for 10 year old students. Wrong move!!!

Cute project, but material was poor quality
I purchased this project for my daycare kids.
Very disappointed in the material used. They used flimsy paper. I used the paper wings that were supplied, but I subbed the body part with foam. Worked better. Plus, the antennas needed to be hot glued on to stay. Would I recommend this project? Yes, if you subbed the foam for the paper body. It's sturdy now. I would recommend this for 5 and above also..

Fun, quick craft- but requires a glue gun
I purchased these to help keep a group of 4-5 year olds busy during a playdate. They had a great time doing this quick and easy craft. It kept them busy for about 20 minutes. This craft would work for kids aged 3 to 5.
My one big gripe is that the antennae must be attached using a glue gun (recommended) or stapler (works in a pinch). The materials in the kit are not sufficient for attaching the antennae, and I did not see anything about needing a glue gun in the online description. The kit should come with heavy-duty tape to attach the pipe cleaners to the ladybugs.

These were ok
The little black square you see in the picture is an ink pad, it actually comes with two. THe ink cleaned up off their fingers easily and the colors were bright and fun. But if you're crafty, you could very easily make these as a project to do at a kids party. THe paper is thin, it's not a cardstock. But the kids liketd them.
