Impossilbe Craft for children & adults
I tried to do one of these in advance of a party at school. It was impossible for me to get the glue to stick, the body to fold properly. I am an experienced craft person. These would have been impossible for my daughters class.

Very cute but time consuming
I bought these for my child's 1st grade class to do during a party. When I realized the time constraints, my daughter and I decided to do them at home and give them as favors. You must, must, must plan extra time and do things in cycles to complete w/o everything falling apart. We did heads, antennae and bodies all separate and allowed all to dry overnight b/f putting them together. Also, it is best to use a hot glue gun b/c w/just regular craft glue or Elmer's, the head and antennae will fall right off. They are darling once put together and we had a lot of fun doing it once we realized it couldn't all be done at once.

Kids had lots of fun
I bought this for our daycare provider make with all of the kids. They had lots of fun decorating them. She did have to put the pipe cleaner through the body for all of the kids because they had a hard time with that. The kids were 5 years old.

Great craft for Camp
I purchased these as a craft for Camp this summer. The kids will LOVE them. I love that they are individually packaged. That sure makes it easier on the craft teacher.

Use Glue Dots!
I have done an OTC inchworm project with two different age groups. This craft is easy with a couple of assembly tips: hook the attenna under the pipe cleaner end (folded down) where you plan to put the pom-pom head. Secure with a regular size glue dot or two, then stick on the pom-pom head. You can use mini glue dots for the other small pieces, but tacky glue works well and only takes a little longer to dry. Too many people try to do these type of projects with regular white glue or glue sticks. No wonder the kids get frustrated! Invest in the right type of adhesives and you will have a fun, cute project that the kids can enjoy. Even most of the parents commented on how cute they were!

Cute but Hard
This is a cute craft. I bought it for 1st graders to do during Girl Scouts. They had so much trouble with it. I even had 5th grade Girl Scouts helping and they couldn't do it. The eyes kept popping off the head and then the heads finally popped off. Maybe if we had more time for the glue to dry between each part we would have some success. The girls finally got tired of fighting most of them trashed their worms.
