      I bought this to do as a project with my 6 yr old granddaughter and 8 yr old grandson. We had a great time doing this together. My grandson loved putting the buildings together. My granddaughter loved the glue and the glitter! It was a fun craft to do with them--I wasn't looking for perfection, just a good time with a Christmas activity.
      It was easy to punch out the pieces and to fold them along the embossed lines. The tricky part was the gluing of the tabs, and most of the time that was simple, except for the curved roof on the one house. It just didn't want to stick. I think on the whole the tabs could have been bigger. The glue was difficult to get off my fingers--I had to scrub. The booklet was very helpful and it told how to make future houses with the templates. The snowmen and trees were easy to put together and decorate. You don't have to use a brush to decorate the houses, but we chose to use one to give the glued areas more definition (we used disposable brushes, nothing fancy). I haven't put the fence together yet. We didn't do it all in one sitting; it took a couple sessions, and I will have to finish up the last details. We sold our house and all of our decorations are in storage; this activity served two purposes: time with grandchildren and decoration for our temporary apartment! I wouldn't use this with children younger than 6 years old--probably better with 8 years and older.

      Village is not easy to create

      This looked excellent when I purchased the package. My 9 year old had a lot of trouble getting the edges to fold correctly so the houses would come together.

      This looked excellent when I purchased the package. My 9 year old had a lot of trouble getting the edges to fold correctly so the houses would come together.

      The glue was all over the place.

      We did work together on another piece and it was a little better. Once created the painting and glitter was simple for the child.

      My family enjoyed making these buildings and the finished product does look nice, but we were missing one of the buildings , the church I believe.

      Comments about Sterling Publishing Build a Christmas Village:

      The Christmas village was bought for my grand children, thinking that during the holiday it might be fun to create a new scene for around the tree. I wanted activities that would be new and fun for them and when I found them I was delighted. Don't know how they turned out, since they went to Ellensburg.

      The quality of this product is top notch! We were able to follow the directions and put the houses together. The papers were quality papers and were printed with detailed designs to make a beautiful scene. Additionally, the package included templates so that we can make our own houses using other papers. The folding is easy and even my first grader was able to do the folding. Buying ceramic houses is easy, but making paper houses is not only fun to do, but also nice to do over and over again.

      building a christmas village

      Comments about Sterling Publishing Build a Christmas Village:

      My daughter is very crafty and had always wanted one ot those expensive Christmas Villages, this was a good alternative and it allows for much self expression as you can decide how ornate to decorate each piece based on your own preference. It was made of a stable material and appears to provide much interactive time as an individual activity. Only need to add a few sold separately items like snow fluff and glitter to bring the entire village to life. I would definitely purchase this item again.
