Wooden Snowman Snow Measuring Stick Craft Kit
Easy and fun craft
My first graders really enjoyed this craft. It was fun for them to do, and easy enough that they could be independent doing it.

I am in the process of doing this craft with my 3rd graders. The rulers are a mess: stratches, uneven paint, transfer marks- but I don't know what from as they were individually wrapped. Many of the wood pieces are warped and won't lay flat so the kids can glue them. Already 6 of my students have missing parts: bottoms of the hats, and the numbers! There is only one "extra parts" bag for the dozen and all it contains is a star- the least important of all the parts. I am VERY disappointed. My grade level spends hundreds of dollars on OT products every year and this is by far the worst experience we have had. Calgon, take me away!

I am happy with my purchases. My 9,7, and 6 year olds could make these on their own with the exception of attaching the arms. We used tacky glue, not school glue. Pieces stay in place better. We're making them as Christmas gifts for our cousins, but I don't expect them to last as the wood will absorb the snow on warm days. There isn't any extra room at the bottom of the measuring stick to stick it in the ground before it snows.

/very good purchase for the reasonable price
We haven't put them together yet but I am sure the kit is going to be excellent. I purchased the kits for a craft project in Children's church at an Assembly of God Church. We are located in the Houston/Galveston, Texas area and the kids are always praying for snow.

Way too Hard
Bought these for girl scouts and they ARE NOT STICKERS. You have to glue every single little piece. It says this is for 5 and up? Way too hard for 5-7 year olds.

DO NOT BUY
I was extremely disappointed! There were many missing pieces. Quality control was lost on this product

Off the Mark
The one inch mark is at 1/2 inch thus making the measuring stick worthless.

What a disappointment
I purchased 36 of these and not a single one had a complete set of numbers. I was using them for a school winter party. We ended up having the children write the numbers on the stick. To make matters worse other pieces were also missing from certain packages. All the parents were scrambling to get complete sets for the kids. Way to much effort for such a simple idea.

I bought this item for a school craft fair. The item was great and easy to put together. I just wish all the pieces had sticky tape to use instead of glue. Took a long time to dry.

Much Cuter in Picture
I bought this as a room mom for a first grade Christmas Party. The paint sticks were warped and some had mold/mildew on them. It was very lucky that I had needed to buy to 2 orders, because I had to pick through and throw away almost half. If you do buy this craft, make sure the kids use glue sticks rather than the liquid bottle type. The glue doesn't stick to the paint sticks very well until almost totally dry. I was excited when I saw the picture, but very dissapointed when I opened the box. : (
