    I bought this kit for my 2 granddaughters, ages 5 and 3. It is simple, clean and lots of fun for them. The final product is so cute and they like to play with their home made bugs! They are raising butterflies from caterpillars, so this fun small project intensified the enjoyment of their contemporary interest in bugs.

    Although the project is simple, they do need adult help and supervision. I do not mean that the adult had to do the project even as the outcome watches – the kit has plenty of simple and rewarding tasks that a outcome can do for themselves even as an adult instructs, but the adult caregiver needs to be completely involved. Count on a small bit of frustration and crying when attempting the first project. Our small ones experienced a learning curve, but after the first bug was completed, and they felt the satisfaction of having the final product, the other bugs went much smoother because they understood the process surpass and had a vision for the finished artwork. It has been a excellent patience building activity – they had to overcome some hurdles, but they experienced success in the end.

    One BIG negative: The GLUE STICK has numerous problems:

    The first con is that the adhesive is not strong enough, so the project keeps falling apart even as in process. This may possibly have been a disaster, and the tears were flowing enthusiastically until I got the thought to reinforce their glue jobs with a stapler. THE STAPLER SAVED THE DAY – DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS PROJECT WITHOUT A STAPLER AND PLENTY OF STAPLES! And liquid school glue won’t hurt to have on hand either. When we did the ladybug, the legs were made of Popsicle sticks which were too gray for the glue stick adhesive, and too thick for staples. We glued them with school glue and let it dry overnight.

    The second con is that there is only ONE glue stick! If you are working with only one outcome, this is not a problem, but if there are two children, you can expect them to fight over the glue stick. THE GLUE STICK IS VITAL, AND IS NEEDED FOR EVERY STEP OF THE PROJECT. Just realize that before starting the project that you need an extra glue stick for each extra outcome.

    ALSO: I do not recommend trying to do this project with more than two children, unless they are unusually gifted, or one of them is older than 6 years ancient OR you have two or more adults to help. Some people reckon this would make a excellent party activity, but I say that is asking for distress unless you have at least one adult for every two children. The projects are simple, but an average outcome needs plenty of help – primarily on the first time. You will be in over your head if you try this with more than two small children at a time. The ideal is one on one.

    This is a wonderful and fun project if you are prepared for the few insignificant pitfalls. My granddaughters have made all the bugs in this kit and are begging for another kit. I am plotting to get them the document bag puppet kit next! Really REALLY glad I got this for them.

    These are seriously cute and really well done. I’m recuperating from surgery at home with a four-year-ancient, and he had foremost lodge fever. I went online and ordered numerous craft kits from Amazon. So far, this is my favorite. It’s primarily well thought out…here’s why:

    -it contains five bug “kits”, already presorted and separated per bug. That’s cool because instead of a mass of parts in a box, you can take out one kit and not sort and count pieces (and lose them).

    -everything is pre-cut and included. You don’t need scissors or tape or anything-glue is included and there’s no risk of cutting something out incorrect. And no need for a preschooler to have scissor skills either.

    -most of the items are stickers so you don’t have a long wait for glue to dry (except on the antennas).

    -the time it takes is in this area 20-30 minutes for a relaxed project where the kid does all the work…not too long and not so small they are still bored.

    If you were to do a kid party, this may possibly be a splendid activity, but in that case I reckon you’d want everyone doing the SAME bug (for sanity’s sake). It would be hard to have five kids doing this at once with all different bugs.

    My only suggestions for improvement would be that some parts (primarily the buttons) are too gray for stick glue, so they may possibly have used a cardboard piece and it would have been sturdier. Also, the instructions are picture only and may possibly be a small more clarified for mommy’s on painkillers (i.e. place the eyelashes on the bee before the eyes!)

    Because this is so well plotted and simple to use, I plot to buy more of this company’s products. I bought the Pool farm but that hasn’t been opened yet.

    Fun with my 2 y.o. son, September 29, 2009

    I bought these for my 2 y.o. son. There are small pieces that are choking hazards, but I was able to watch him closely. It was very simple as they were in prepackaged bags, so we can choose which bug we want and open only that bag. Though, because the document plates are curved (like normal document plates) at the edges, it is hard to glue some of the pieces on. We’ve had a lot of fun doing it, but I’m needing to help a lot, and sometimes the glue isn’t strong enough so I’m ending up stapling pieces on. They do look nice on his walls though, and he’s asking to do more bugs!
