"The assembly age on the package say 6 years and up. Younger children would need the help of an adult. It's pretty simple to glue together. All the pieces come in a small sealed plastic pouch. You will need glue and a black/brown marker to add in the detailed lines of the ears, nose, and mouth. Cheek color is also not included. If I were to order more for a party craft, I would draw in the facial lines prior to the party! You could easily add the child's name on the stick or have the child do it for a personal touch."
