Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by upinvermont Excellent project for Cub Scouts!
I purchased these for a Cub Scout project for a group of ten 8 yr. old boys. I put one together with my 6yr old daughter prior to the meeting to make sure it was easy enough - and it is! My daughter loved "doing it herself" as did the group of Cub Scouts! What a simple fun project! Plan on about 30-45 minutes total for a large group to complete. Tools needed are a small hammer and a Philips screw driver.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn Couldn't be happier - good value & fun
I used these kits to do a Cub Scout Wolf requirement with my den. [17 boys hammering at once!] The quality of the kits is excellent. With only a little adult assistance, the 7-8 year-old boys were able to create quality birdhouses ready for painting. It was definitely a hit, and I don't think we had any problems, even minor ones, with any of the kits. Everything lined up as described in the instructions.

More squared off and shorter than pictured. This is a fun complete kit for kids to build. For the Nature Center, they needed some modifying. Apparently, birds like it taller. We put a hinge on the roof for easier access to nest. We widened the opening to 1 1/2" for blue birds. And we omitted the perch as it helps predator birds access nest.
Home Depot was great to work with!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Average product
All pieces included
Hardware very low end
Nails bent very easily
I realize these were only $8.50 per house but
No where near as good as products Home Depot gives out to kids on monthly building at store.

Straightforward enough for our troop of 7 year old Girl Scouts to put together with some help and they look like they are going to be very durable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy Needs adult guidance
The product arrived on time and in good condition. Instructions are easy to follow. I ordered this for my sons 9th birthday party. Not many children could build it on their own. Especially putting the roof part together required adult assistance. We made sure there was an adult with each child to assist otherwise it would not have been easy for the boys to build this on their own.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Billie not worth the price
This product was not suitable for young children even with adult help. I purchased them for a Father's Day project for my Kindergarten and first grade. It was VERY DIFFICULT. The roof was difficult to line up. I ended up nailing the roof together separately and then nailed it on later. The pieces were warped and not cut precisely. We were missing screws and nails. For the amount I paid, I expected better quality.

Bought the multi-pack, had to order it on-line, came in three days, very nice. had extra kits, good thing because we used some of the parts to replace the parts that were missing or cut wrong. ideal cub scout project, easy, fun, and they can paint it at home!!
