The ColorBok QC47648T Suncatcher Kit is a good activity for those with patience and perseverance. However, this is not an activity for an impatient person (regardless of age) or for those who cannot tolerant imperfections.

The frustrating part was a frame that would not lay flat on the cookie sheet. This caused beads to move into the wrong colored areas or under the frame. You should have tweezers on hand to move beads around which can correct some bead mixing. Several beads melted outside of the frame. This isn't a really big deal if you take a blade and trim around the frame. I would not recommend trying to break the beads off. Also, have some ventilation when melting the plastic because it smells like plastic burning. If you are sensitive to these kinds of smells, you might choose to pass on this product.

After purchasing and making the first one (even with the frustration we experienced), I did buy more suncatchers to make and bake. I'm going to lay some heavy items on the frame to see if it will help it flatten. I also learned that the center of my cookie sheet interfered with the frame making full contact along all edges.

Overall, I give it four stars because it was a fun activity and we liked the finished product even with its bead melting flaws - character right. We learned so much making the first one that the next one should go smoother. Amazon had the price right on the day I purchased and it's fun to see the bead transformation. Plus you have a finished product to hang.

My daughter had a fun time doing this with her older sister. It was a little difficult for my youngest to keep the colors separate when placing them on the different spots on the unicorn. I think it came out cute. The only part I didn't care and neither did my kids was the gross smell of the plastic melting, but hey I knew what this was and we just opened the windows.

This little kit includes everything my girls needed to complete this. The metal mold or frame, the little beads, a sting and a suction cup. We didn't used tin foil when we baked our, we used parchment paper and it came out great. I think this is a fun little craft at such an affordable price.

This craft was fun to do. The instructions suggest using tweezers to fill the smaller spots in the frame, which isn't super kid-friendly in my opinion, but we disregarded those instructions and let our unicorn be a little messy. The parts where the colors bled together were actually kinda pretty. There were a lot more crystals than we needed to complete the unicorn; my niece had fun making other designs to bake sans frame using the extras.

The resulting suncatcher was sparkly, which we appreciated.

Nostalgia at it's finest, at least for me. This was so fun for my kids to open on Christmas morning in their stockings, These wanted to make them right away. They turned out great. Definitely have windows or doors open though when you are baking them. Smell is awful. Makes me think of my childhood. 4 stars due to smell while baking.

This is a great reward or little present for any kiddo, my 8 year old loved this, she was really proud of her work. There are small pieces so it's not for really little kids. It needs to be baked on aluminum foil, in a not glass cooking pan (I learned the hard way). We really enjoyed making this.

My niece loved it and was able to do it her at 6yrs old. Only 1 we did of the four bought but my nephew 4yrs old will need help even with large area of shark. Will buy more, still have ones I did as a kid 33yrs ago. Wish were ready more available and more designs like dinosaurs, flowers, fairies,Pegasus, turtles & safari/marine animals. Thanks again Marci Huff

I used to do these when I was a kid. So fun! I bought this to do with my granddaughter and she loved it. But it does take patients and a steady hand. Just make sure before you start that the frame is laying completely flat if not bend it so it will. But it turned out cuter than the picture shows.

This is a great craft for little ones. It teaches patience, creativity, fine motor skills and fun! It reminds me of being a kid doing these in the kitchen.

Great fun for my 6 and 8 year old girls. Would have given it 5 stars expect for the fact that the metal is not completely flat, so the plastic beads move from section to section and bleed colors together when baked. =(

Fun project. Only downside is the crystals are difficult to contain in your stencil so you have to be extremely careful or will be left frustrated. In the end the unicorn turned out great. Definitely worth the price.
