The kit includes colored pencils and a sharpener, as well as a hole punch to punch out the holes for the ornaments. It also contains all of the metal pieces to attach to the ornaments, and the bands to hang them on the tree. The tree itself is velvety and surprisingly sturdy. It won't crease or break when I store it for use next year. The variety in ornaments is pretty neat, too. There are a lot of options, and none are the gory "scary" type. They are safe for kids of all ages in terms of the pictures.
The ornaments are not pre-cut. They also are not pre-punched. If you're not careful, you'll end up doing what I did and forget to punch a few of the holes and have to find a way to drill one in after baking. Otherwise, this kit is great, and the price here is excellent!
We cut the pictures out and took turns picking our favorites. The kids, age 6 and 11, spent quite some time coloring in their pictures, paying close attention to the details. Frankie had a green face, his bride was white, our devil was bright red. Pumpkins, skeletons, bats and witches were all decked out using the colored pencils (provided) -- black, white, green, brown, purple, red, orange, and yellow.
Also included are a pencil sharpener, a mini hole-punch and all the loops and bands you'll need for hanging everything on the tree.
The tree is black flocked cardboard, not designed to withstand a ton of abuse but it should hold up for years if stored carefully.
There are 24 items to color as well as an 8 piece skeleton.
The pieces go into the oven (we use our toaster oven) on a baking sheet with a little baby powder to prevent sticking. It is fun to watch them curl up, shrink rapidly and flatten out about 20% of their original size. It still amazes me when I watch! You have to watch carefully because ours were done within one minute each time but the instructions say it can take a couple of minutes. They can be brittle when they are done so if yours is not flat, either live with it or put it back in to see if it will flatten out the rest of the way. Make sure you punch a hole in all of the pieces before you bake them. It will be impossible to do so after they are baked.
Our pieces came out really well, the color gets more vibrant once they are baked and little mistakes go away. We then hung them on the tree and proudly displayed it for the holiday season.
Overall, it took about 1½ -2 hours from start to finish with three of us working on it.
A fun gift or project for all ages. Highly recommended! I think I'll be ordering the Shrinky Dinks Holiday Fun next!
The instructions provided are easy to follow, and the kit comes with everything you need. I really liked that it was all included, and I didn't have to run around the house trying to find extra stuff like a hole punch.
My son thought it was amazing that the pieces changed so much after they came out of the oven and had fun decorating the tree with them.
If you purchase the product, be careful with the hole punch. It can be hard to see exactly where the hole is going to go. I punched through the side on one and had to make a second hole, but there are so many different pieces, it's not noticeable. Also, make sure you do as the instructions say and leave the pieces in the oven until they have ALL flattened back out. I took mine out without noticing that a couple were still curled. However, when I put them back in to see what would happen, they flattened out and came out fine.
This is not a toy to be played with. It's fairly good quality, but meant to be a display only item. It would be very easy to break the tree if it was played with.
Overall, a fun way to spend a couple hours with your child and get into the Halloween spirit!
