Comments about Ancient Culture Jute Basket Craft Kit:

The idea behind this kit is good however the supplies provided were low quality. The plastic base doesn't hold paint that is supplied or spray paint made to stick to plastic. I suggest colored plastic instead of white. Also the beads provided were cheap and plastic. I ended up using some of the beads left over from other projects which worked out well.

Comments about Ancient Culture Jute Basket Craft Kit:

Jute baskets were at great project at VBS....and for all ages...even the high school councilors wanted to make one! It was a breeze to setup and the elementary age children were very sucessful. Adults should get spray paint made especially for painting plastics to prepare the baskets ahead of time for weaving. Don't try to brush paint the white basket forms...just spray. I sprayed 24 at a time in a cardboard box...no mess!

Comments about Ancient Culture Jute Basket Craft Kit:

These were used in a camp I ran recently. I had a volunteer cut the jute and she cut it too small (you need 5 yards and she cut 2) but we were able to improvise and knot them together and you could hardly tell. We also skipped the first step of painting the basket and spray painted them brown before the camp to save time. Most popular craft with the kids

Comments about Ancient Culture Jute Basket Craft Kit:

I run crafts at church camp for older elementary children. We have about 50 kids at a time. These were great because they were able to do these with a minimum of instruction. We did not paint the baskets because we didn't like the chipping (they really should just be brown plastic instead of white). I would have given this 5 stars if it wasn't for the chippy paint. Plan on giving each person almost twice the jute as the directions call for... there is plenty in the kit. Don't worry if they don't get the weaving perfect, they still come out really cute!

Comments about Ancient Culture Jute Basket Craft Kit:

We did this last year with our VBS kids K-6th grade and they all did a great job. There are some that just aren't very coordinated and I was a little nervous with so many children we have that they would not be able to finish, but I was pleased with the results. We had them all start together and worked through the first couple of steps together and then they were on their own. Cute little cup for doo-dads and whatnot.
