Tissue Paper Star Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
I bought this craft to use in my son's first grade class. It's very cute but comes up short. For each craft it includes 2 black foam stars (self-adhesive), 1 clear acetate star, tissue squares, and a cord for hanging. The directions say to lay the tissue squares on the clear plastic star. The first problem is that the tissue is so stuck together that to do with little kids you have to take time to separate the tissue first. I think I'll cut my own tissue as it will take less time than trying to separate it. My other suggestion for improvement would be to include a second clear acetate star instead of having the kids cover one side with a glue glaze. It looks better, is less messy, and will last longer. I'm heading to the craft store to see if I can find clear acetate to use for the other side. This is not the easy open-and-use it craft that Oriental Trading is known for.
