Tropical Suncatcher Craft Kit
This product was good in quality and kept my four year old very entertained. The paint was very vibrant in color, but ran out before all of the suncatchers were finished. Also, since the product included the word "kit" I assumed the suncatchers also came with string and a suction cup, however they did not.

Way too messy
These are really cute but the paint pens were a disaster. They took forever to open and they were so easy to squirt the kids made a huge mess and the paint did not wash off easily. If you could do this project in a one-on-one environment it might work but it was not worth the mess for us.

Lacks instructions and smell warning
The 'paint' was hard to open, then some leaked at the neck. There were no instructions so I had to use common sense and practice. The kit does not come with paint brushes, yes you need many brushes as it is NOT washable. Kits in the retails stores do have brushes. When you use the pen paint applicator you have to use a light hand and if you squeeze to much out you have to spend time using the tip of the applicator like a brush to move it around so it dries correctly.
Once completed you can achieve some decent results but not without hovering over your little crafters.

paint was a disaster
I was not expecting the paint to smell so toxic, and it did NOT come off clothes OR HANDS! there were no warnings that I could find that you needed to wear gloves or use extra ventilation.
The paint was also pretty thick and hard to get a small enough among onto the sun catcher.
I would not recommend it.

Great for classroom crafts
We are using these to sell for a economics based business adventure we do in our school. I liked the different combination of items in this pack also.

Very fun craft for kids
I ordered these suncatchers for my office for "Take your child to work day" (They had an arts and crafts session.) They absolutely loved them and were so fun for the kids to do. The only knock is the paint that comes with it is SO SMELLY and is NOT meant for kids under 7 or 8 because they just got the paint all over the place. Otherwise a great product!

The tubes were messy and a majority of them were dry and not useablee
Very disappointed in product. Majority of tubes were dry and not useable. When they were full, they sometimes came out in clumps. I would not recommend the use of tubes for sun catchers.

Great party activity
Brought them for swim team party. This product was better suited for kids 3rd grade and older. More popular with the girls in the group, even the older girls. Also, I had to watch them with the painting to ensure paints did not get thrown all over.

I bought these for a craft for girl scout camp. The girls really liked them. It takes a while for the paint to dry. Some of the holes were too small for the hooks and we had to make bigger holes.

These are very nice to give to the kids to do for crafts. Only thing I would recommend is adding string do they can be hung up.
