Under the Sea Suncatchers
I used this for a craft at my 6 year old's birthday party. The kids (ranging in age from 5 to 11) enjoyed it a lot, but note that you must purchase the paints and hangers separately. Also, the kids tend to use more paints then needed and then they take a LONG time to dry.

I used these with our Nursery School Summer School Session with our 'Under the Sea' Theme. They turned out beautiful & the children really enjoyed creating there own sun catcher. I used the markers you sell for this project. You have to stick a pin in the tip. I had a large safety pin handy. They dried overnight & they took them home the next day.

Nice, But One Suggestion
Family of all ages made these while on a beach vacation. Unfortunately, they do not come with suction cups, which I didn't realize until we were already on vacation. I would suggest to OT to include suction cups, so the finished projects can be hung on windows. I would recommend having toothpicks on hand to get the paint into the small sections and corners.
We used the paint pens sold by OT, but read the reviews before buying, as they give instructions for use; none come with the pens.

Perfect for a party
Had 15 eleven year old girls and they loved these. I would buy an three sets of pens though with that many girls. They had a great time painting them.

Really nice activity!
These are larger than I expected, and very cute! The kids just adored painting them for a 4 year old party. We used the sun catcher glitter paint pens -- really turned out great! Takes several days to dry completely. Needed more paint than one set of pens though...buy two sets!

easy & simple
These sun catchers were fun, simple to use. Ages 4 & up were having fun. I should've bought more. Can't go wrong with the price. You should buy the paint tubes as well. Don't forget to buy extra!

Good, but no hangers!
I like the sun catchers. The characters were cute. However, I was disappointed that no hangers were sent with them and it does not say on the product info that hangers are not included. That should definitly be listed!

Kids loved them
These sun catchers are very cute and true to size and description. They are not too small, not too big. I purchased them for my daughter's "under the sea" party. My only problem was that I avoided buying the paint pens and thought I could get away with markers (which didn't work as well) and window crayons. Boy, was that a mess! I suspect the whole project was going to be a mess anyway with the paint pens too. I recommend this as an individual project (or with only a few children involved). Unless you are a very patient and carefree person then by all means bring them to the party. The kids loved them.... the mom did not enjoy the mess.
