Tropical Fish Necklace Craft Kit
I absolutely loved this craft! It is colorful, easy to make (with a little help from an adult for vey young kids,under 5?), and a very good value for the money. It is several different materials to see and feel, and the kids loved wearing them. I would buy it again.

Bought this to do with 4 year olds & it was a hit! Need to do with them due to small parts though.

This was a classroom project. We were disappointed with the craft. I wish the description would have told us that the foam pieces had to be glued (we thought it was a peel and stick foam). There was no way to attach the ribbons without gluing. We ended up taping the ribbons to the back of the fish.

Some small pieces, but very cute
I ordered this project for my Crafty Toddlers group. We won't be using it for a couple of months still, but I went ahead and made a display piece. It is very cute and my 2 year old loves to wear it. The yellow dots are small but adhered easily with small glue dots. I used Elmer's Glue Sticks for the other pieces on the fish.
The beads are easy to string, but the ribbon needs to be knotted at least 3 times to keep the beads from slipping off. I actually knotted the ribbon over the first and last beads to secure them. Then I attached the ribbon to the back of the fish with a glue gun. I had hoped to used something else since the project will be done by 2-3 year olds. However, the glue gun was the best option to secure the ribbon so they can wear it. We'll let the kids do the fish and then the parents can hot glue the backs.

The kids enjoyed this activity
You have to staple the fish to the string for it to stay.
