Nativity Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
My class loved making these little nativity ornaments. The little people are so cute.

I bought these for the children in primary to make for Christmas. The kids ages ranged from 3-11. We used glue dots except for the hay--they took the manger to an adult to glue on the hay with a glue gun. We had a few adults helping the younger kids, but most of the kids 6 and older understood how to put it together themselves.. We had about 40 kids making these at the same time and about 10 adults. It took less than an hour for everyone to be done and the kids loved it! I highly recommend these! They do take some time, but not too bad for something so cute!

Great craft project for Sunday School class
I used the Nativity craft for our Sunday School class of first through third graders. I pre-made the nativity part of it and let the children glue on the straw and characters and take them home to hang on their tree. The children really liked this craft.

Cutest Nativity Set
I bought this ornament kit for my 11 year old grandson. I walked him through making one and he finished the rest up, All but one package was ready to be constructed totally, luckily they include extra pieces. These turned out to be the cutest little ornaments. Both he and I were very pleased with this product. I would recommend this product for older children.

cute but difficult for kids to assemble
The kits came with each ornament separated into its own baggy plus a few extra pieces, just in case, but they were not needed. The pieces were decent quality, but I tried to assemble my first ornament with regular elmer's glue and it took forever to dry. I ended up using glue dots instead which took quite a few for all the little pieces, but in the end was much easier. I didnt even have the kids try to assemble them with regular glue. Even with the glue dots, these ornaments took a LONG time for my 8 and 9 year old girls to assemble. Not recommended for younger kids as there are a lot of little tiny things to put together. Younger kids would definitely need adult help.

DIfficult to Assemble
This craft was donated to my 1st grade Sunday school class. Upon opening the package, I knew this craft would be too difficult for 1st graders to assemble so I assembled most of it prior to class. The fabric was difficult to work with and much of it was frayed. Even my 9-year became frustrated when she attempted to help me. Craft is not appropriate for 5-year-olds, but may be better suited for ages 10+.

This kit ended fine after we altered it. The cloth included for the figures did not stay glued and was difficult to work with. We discarded the material, replaced it with felt and things were better. Our thin felt worked better than the medium thickness felt we tried, the kids couldn't get the med thickness felt to hold closed (too much time needed for success). Made the craft in 3 stages 1. manger, 2. figures, 3. put it all together. Was challenging enough for 5th grade students.

Very small pieces!
I think this craft would be too difficult for 5 year-olds, but more suited for 8-10 year-olds. The pieces are quite small and require much patience in allowing glue to dry between steps. The craft is very cute but was difficult for tiny hands who needed much help in preparing.

I have bought this craft ornament twice for gifts for church events. It used to be cheaper and I wish the baby Jesus was made like Mary and Joseph. Still it is a beautiful ornament and gift.
