Comments about Shell Cross Boxes Craft Kit (makes 24):

I used this product for VBS. Take notice of the "items included" photo: you only get 7 tubes of .25 oz glue in order to complete 24 projects. In order to purchase more glue to complete the projects, the glue tubes available do not come with the nozzle required to do the project with as little mess as possible. Also, it takes 1 tube to do one project; therefore, 7 tubes do not meet the 24 project need. Because I lead crafts for 100 kids, even if I shared the glue between the 5 units, I wouldn't have enough to divide between the three groups. Fortunately, I pre-made some projects before the VBS actually took place. I discovered that the project takes at least an hour and 20 minutes to complete; the gold paint does not cover well; it takes at least 2 coats to barely cover brush marks (3 coats to cover completely).Furthermore, the cross in the example picture utilizes at least 17 shells. You may run out of shells before you complete the 15th project (basically, there aren't enough shells included to make the cross resemble the picture). Although these are some major issues for a time-oriented craft; the finished product does look very nice and resembles the picture (only with less shells), and the quality is good also. I have been a customer of S&S for 2 years, and even though the glue-thing, amount of shells, and time of completion are my only complaints, S&S has always carried great products, and the kids and I have never been disappointed with the finished results.

Comments about Shell Cross Boxes Craft Kit (makes 24):

I buy this product each year for the First Communicants in our Parish to put together at their First Communion Retreat. The boxes are glued together by volunteer adults before the children glue and decorate the box with shells. It is easy for 7 and 8 year olds and they turn out beautiful, especially when sprayed with gold or silver paint. We also line the box with felt. Many children in their teens and twenties today, have told me they still have their cross boxes, and still use it for their precious items, especially their religious items from their First Communion.

Comments about Shell Cross Boxes Craft Kit (makes 24):

Mass produced for a VBS project. A little time consuming to mass assemble. Kids loved painting and decorating. Ages 4-14. Our craft time is limited and classes number at least 10-15 usually. Easily filled up the time. Nice take home project.
