Easy to do - pop out cut outs pieces, lunch bags and includes a large glue stick. So, you have everything you need included in the box. It also comes with picture type instructions which made it easy for my little guy to do his cow all by himself while I did the frog. Very cute and hours of fun! Highly recommend you adding this box set to you rotating kid crafts!
This craft kit is on Amazon for $7.50 currently and contains 5 paper bag puppets, making each puppet about $1.50 a piece. Each puppet (Lion, Elephant, Bird/Owl, Frog and Cow) come in individual plastic bag kits with everything needed for assembly: a colored paper bag, heavy glossy cardstock punch out accessories like eyes, legs, tails, etc., and also colorful stickers to complete the animal. The punch outs are easy and do not tear, even my 3 year old did all of them easily and quickly. Also included in the kit is one jumbo glue stick to be used for all the puppets. There will be 3/4 or more of the gluestick left for more crafting after all 5 puppets are assembled.
This provided about 45 minutes of craft time start to finish with 3 kids and one adult. The directions are colorful and basic and easy for an adult to understand. Glue seems to be holding really well and I don't anticipate the parts falling off easily. A 6 and older child should be able to do this almost entirely independent. My 6 year old just needed some very basic help in understanding the directions. The 3 and 5 year old did just fine with step by step explanation. This held their attention until the very end, the only steps I did was putting everyone's legs as they were tired. However this took much longer with 3 kids (and one glue stick) and each had to wait in between each step while the other 2 glued.
I think they enjoyed the combination of getting to punch out pieces, glue and use stickers to decorate. All of them said they "loved" this craft and are excited to use it in a puppet show.
-Everything that you need is included in this kit, it takes zero prep time or forethought. It also takes zero artistic or crafty ability.
-The children enjoyed the activity and it held their attention for almost the full 45 minutes (I would estimate 15-20 mins for this craft if you are just doing one puppet with one child, less time if your child is older than preschool).
-It is a 'useful' craft in the sense that after the initial craft time, it doesn't just get hung up to be admired but can be used as a puppet for additional play time. (I will update once they have been played with for a while how durable they are).
-The cardstock punch outs are durable enough that you could keep and use them as stencils to re-create a similar animal in the future if you are crafty and want to do this again in a more frugal way. We saved ours and I will update if we use that. This might be a fun craft idea for an older (7-10) child to trace and cut and decorate their own eyes, mouths, feathers, etc).
-This would be a great "grandparent" craft or something to leave with a sitter as like I said you need no craft supplies on hand other than what is provided.
-This gave us a great new craft idea of how to make paper bag puppets in the future.
-These LOOK really vibrant and beautiful even when not assembled "perfectly."
-This is an EXCELLENT "experience" gift for a child for birthday or holiday ideas that are inexpensive. It would be fun just to have these on hand for gifts and parties.
-The only possible "con" I could even come up with this is just the price. And I say that very hesitantly. The price per craft is definitely high if you're looking for something to do every single day with your kids. However for the quality and thickness of the bag, the glue, and the overall value of the finished product I really think $1.50 per puppet is a great price. And for a mom like myself it was so much fun to relax and ENJOY craft time with all the kids without the hussle and bussle of preparing and trying to keep everyone from grabbing and thinking of ideas.
