Snowflake & Button Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
Cute little ornament...easy to assemble

Harder than expected....
After reading the reviews, I felt like this would be a fairly simple project for all ages. However, it was quite complicated for little hands and fingers to do without frustration. Time was a factor because the glue needed to dry on the sticks before the buttons could be glued on. So, we had to prep each ornament by gluing the sticks together beforehand so they could dry before the children attempted the project. The tiny end pieces that were to be glued on the end were quite a challenge. So, we told the kids they could leave them off, if they desired. All ages were involved in this activity...even adults..and, many of them left of the tiny end pieces. I would definitely recommend that it not be used in large groups of younger children unless there are quite a bit of helpers available.

Purchase was not complete
Many packets were missing items.

I was not able to assemble these as in the picture, but I made them each unique. A couple of the popsicle sticks were significantly bowed, but I was able to work with them. Overall, I'm happy with the way they came out, but the quality could have been better.

Out of five OTC products purchased for school holiday crafts, this is the one product I will not be ordering again. The craft sticks were very poor quality, many were broken or warped and the rest had to be sanded, which made prepping the snowflakes for 110 kindergarten children incredibly frustrating. The finished projects were cute, but not worth the time and frustration that went into prepping them.

Cute when finished
Got these to do with 2-4 year olds on Christmas eve. I had to prep them - which was slightly tedious - but then they were fun & easy to assemble for all. We used glue dots, which were fast & held great. The parents all loved them & we used the extras to leave up as winter decorations!

My daughter made these for Christmas gifts. They turned out very cute, but they were somewhat of a pain to glue all those sticks together. She needed help with the sticks, but was able to put the buttons on easily by herself.

There were pieces of ribbon for attaching it to the tree missing and some sticks were warped.

Had a friend who broke her leg. I took these over to her and she loved them. They are the cutest things with the buttons. Highly recommend them.

poor quality of sticks
I was expecting better quality of the popsicle sticks. Many of them were split or broken. Luckily I had some extra sticks in my classroom, however, they weren't the same color.
The buttons were good and so was the ribbon.
It was also a little hard to make for the kids. A lot of assistance was needed.
