Tissue Paper Rainbow Craft Kit
Good, but needs improvement
I am teaching my elementary class about the light spectrum and thought this would be a fun, hands on project to tie in the concepts learned about the spectrum. The problem occurred when many of the students didn't have enough of certain colors of tissue paper squares, and also it would be helpful if you could peel off each individual section to expose the adhesive for each color to add. Otherwise, we made due with tissue paper squares I cut and the students enjoyed the activity.

Not what I expected
I bought this for my kindergartener's classroom party. I was very disappointed with the quality of the craft. The "gold" for the pot of gold was mostly rubbed off. I had to buy some gold glitter to repair 80% of them. I had purchased 5 dozen and found the problem consistant with each kit of 12. I had to also purchase more red tissue paper because I did not have near enough to complete the project. I had plenty of blue and green but was light on yellow and had hardly any red. This could be a really cute project if these issues were addressed.

Cute but little paper
I loved this craft but did not have enouph papers to finish the each project. in the 5 kits I opened they only had 5 tiny yellow papers and few greens. some of the papers were so wrinkled it made it hard to work with. I had to open the extra kits to supply the small group with all the colors. Good thing I didn't need all of them!!!

This was a disappointment at best. The board isn't sticky enough so the tissue paper keeps falling off, the colors are dull and not what is pictured (red is magenta, yellow is very pale, green is teal, the blue is navy and so close to the dark purple it is hard to tell them apart). The description claims no glue is needed, but that would only apply to the rainbow, not the pot of gold, cloud or ribbon. The end product wasn't bad looking, just kind of dull and not bright and cheerful like a rainbow should be.

Not very satisfied
I ordered this for my 4th grade Girl Scout troop and was very disappointed. I had 7 girls at our meeting and this kit came with 12. That should have been more then enough for them to have completed the craft. We opened every one of the 12 kits and still did not have enough red or green tissue paper squares to complete the 7, let alone 12. there were no "extra" pieces as stated. I would not recommend this to anyone.

not what I ordered
When I ordered this craft, it did not have a pot of gold, it had a cloud that read "God keeps his promises".. perfect for church camp. the pot of gold is decidedly NOT perfect for church camp! I am very displeased with the way they changed the craft AFTER I ordered it.

Very time consuming!
This project took me hours to complete. I didn't think the Kindergarten/first graders would stick with it. There are ALOT of little squares of paper and a small space to put each color in. This would be a good project for 2-4th graders.
