Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids and moms loved these Used these with preschool aged kids. They loved them, and the moms also thought they were adorable. I wish the pieces were self sticking. Make sure to buy glue dots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glue required Cute craft. Kids love them for fake bugs and real bugs! Only complaint is the foam is not self adhesive, glue required:(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need hot glue These are so adorable. I bought them not realizing that they weren’t foam stickers - that was my fault. We did not end up using them because the craft would have taken too long for my daughter’s end of year PK4 preschool party. Also - I made a sample at home with the recommended glue but my kids took the jar outside and all the stickers came off so it really needs hot glue to work. That being said, the jars are adorable when they are made and they probably would work great with hot glue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Bought these as end of year gifts for my preschoolers and was very disappointed with them. We opened them all up to have the kids make them on the last day of school and items were missing from several of the jars. It was also difficult to find glue that would properly stick the items to the jar. I would never buy these again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable and big bug jars These bug jars were even BETTER in person! They are a good size, much bigger than I thought they'd be. Only negative- each of the two kits was missing one eye. Luckily I ordered two packs of bug jars and was able to bum eyes off the extras. If we had had more girls at the birthday party, though, it would have been bad to not have enough supplies for everyone. Highly recommend using glue dots with this. The girls who made these were 6-8 years old & they did pretty well, although it did take some patience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catching Bugs All the kids had these cute little jars opened and were running around searching for bugs. The included inserts were cute also where they could decorate their own.

Questions & Answers

Are the foam pieces stickers?

There are mixed reviews. I am confused weather the prices are stickers or if you need glue. Thanks
Asked by: Jennifer04
The leaves are foam stickers. The other pieces need to be glued or affixed with glue dots. They recommend glue dots in the product details. We used a glue stick as our kids are younger (3 & 5). Glue stick worked great.

Asked by: sarahlynn93
Yes, 12 jars and all the decorations. I would recommend using a hot glue gun to keep the decorations on.
