Tissue Paper Snowman Craft Kit
I had one 6 year old, two 8 year old's and one 9 year old who did this project tonight and they loved it. The six year old had a little trouble so i would say more for older kids (7-12) Unlike one of the other reviews, we had way more than enough tissue paper. Instead of following the directions, one of the kids put her scarf, mouth, eyes and nose on first to the glue board and it worked out better that way than putting all that stuff on top of the tissue paper. Either way, cute craft.

Great for 2nd Graders!
I purchased this craft to make with my daughter's 2nd grade class at their holiday party. The kids loved it! I had noticed a couple of other reviews mentioning they didn't have enough tissue paper. I made one before hand as an example for the kids to see and I definitely had more tissue than I needed! I didn't open each individual craft before hand but when we opened them at school each one had plenty of tissue paper. We did have 2 or 3 sets that were each missing a piece or 2. Luckily I had extra sets so I was able to replace them from those. The tissue sticks on with no problem but if you want to stick the other parts on top of the tissue you will need glue. I highly recommend glue dots, I use them pretty much with every craft I do with the class and they work great! Overall I was very happy with thise cute craft!

Cute but time consuming and easily falls apart
It took the kids about 30 minutes to complete this craft, not leaving a lot of time to do anything else besides eat (we have a very short party time allotment).
It was a cute craft and the kids seemed to like it (4th graders) but it did not hold up well. My daughter's went right home and on the tree and as we undecorated we noticed many white pieces of tissue paper had fallen off the snowman and the arms (although adhered with glue dots), kept falling off.

Lots of fun!
Both my 5- and 11-year old daughters had a blast with this and made many of them apiece!

really cute but a few problems
this craft was really cute when it was finished and the kids had fun making them, but there were a few problems. There was not nearly enough white tissue in the individual packages. We had to open other packages to use the white. Luckily we only needed 6 of these. Also, the eyes are way to small. They get lost in the tissue when you try to glue them on. I glued them to black paper first then cut them out in a larger circle and glued them on. This worked really well. Over all it was a good craft. Just have extra white tissue handy if you plan to make all 12.
