Treasure Chest Craft Kit
Great Party favor
At our end of school pirate party, the children used these boxes to store the goodies they found in a treasure hunt. If you expect the children to work independently on this craft , I wouldn't buy it for children under 8.

The children loved the treasure chest. I decided to do most of the work putting it together because it would have taken awhile before the glue would dry. but had them put extra jewels on and it was really beautiful. I was really satisfied with it. All the children loved it and had a wonderful time..

difficult to attach pieces
Children enjoyed the chest but you must use glue dots to attach ribbon, coins and gems if you want them to stay. It is about a 30 minute project.

Awesome Treasure chests
Very pleased with how the treasure chests are. They are of good quality, and for reasonably priced.

really a treasure
these boxes are a great deal. anyone can decorate them even young children with supervision. They give you lots of room for your imagination to go wild. I used the shape stickers to heighten the bottom of the box, Another thing that impressed me was the sturdiness of these boxes.

Great craft idea even if coins are broken...
Purchased these for a birthday party craft. Only downer was that in each chest, half of the "treasure" was broken. The coins included were mostly halves, not whole coins. After throwing out the pieces, the kids had fun grabbing as many coins as they could to fill their chest!

Should have bought the damaged sets
We supposedly purchased the "good" sets of chests, but several had to be repaired with duct tape before we painted them. None of the latches really work right. We'll use them, but are disappointed we paid so much.

I used these for my son's pirate party. The kids found their treasure and got to put it in here to take home. I decorrated them myself since they were too young and I found using a glue gun was definitely faster than regular glue. I only got the gold balls shown in the photo in 1 kit out of 24. The rest had some ugly yellow foam dots to use that i just threw out. The ribbon was fine. Plenty of coins and jewels to make them look cool! The kids loved them. Only one out of 24 was squished so that the lid would not open/close properly.

I don't like to write poor reviews, but the quality is not what I usually get from oriental trading. Hardly any of the clasps actually closed and a lot of the corners were smashed in. It is a VBS craft, and I just hope the kids are not disappointed.

Cheaply made and most lids did not match up to fasten
Treasure chests are priced nicely but are very cheaply made!!! Picture is deceiving, no gold beads are included, just orange round foam stickers to place around the ribbon. The lids did not match up to fasten the latch on front. I purchased extra jewels and foam stickers for our guests to decorate with as well as glitter glue.
