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.

Too many missing parts and frustrating paper
I ordered two 12-packs of these for my daughter's class winter party, and I was very disappointed in the quality control. First off, there are supposed to be two buttons and two eyes for each kit, and more than half were missing one of either in their kit. Then the tissue paper...oooooh, the tissue paper!! I literally spent 2 hours getting these kits sorted through and put in 24 separate baggies so the kids would each have everything they needed, and about 1 1/2 of those hours were spent trying to separate the tissue paper squares. More of the white pieces were loose and ready to use than not, but the black pieces were almost all stuck together in these thick bunches that my daughter and I had to sit and pry apart. It was just ridiculous. I realize they are cheap projects and I don't every leave reviews for them for that reason, but this was just too painful to not mention.

time consuming but adorable
My students loved these. Would have given 5 stars but some packs were missing googly eyes

ADORABLE AND EASY TO ASSEMBLE
After trying out the reindeer ornament and it being too hard for my students to assemble the snowman was a blessing! Very easy to do!!!

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.
