    Great crate!

    Great crate! The kids had so much fun putting this together. Educational and fun. I also love that the stand up kaleidoscope came with a to go case. It’s great if you are going on vacation and are planning on some dinners out where the kids need to be entertained. Lots of activities they can do on the go and keep them entertained!

    Less screen time!

    This crate was a cool way to get my child off of technology and away from a screen! He really liked the mirror project.

    Had my son engaged

    The mirror was very cool. Being able to swap in different patterns and change the angles to make a different image had my child really engaged and excited!

    Great family time

    This was a great crate for family time. We were able to give the kids the control over the activities, but they were also able to share with us their proud accomplishments. The mirror was super cool too!

    Patterns galore!

    Who knew that a kaleidoscope could be so cool! Being able to decorate the kaleidoscope and build it was really fun for my daughter. She loved combining the colors and being able to look through it and see the beautiful patterns she created!

    Art and science!

    He was so excited to make colors combinations with the different colored squares for the kaleidoscope. As an art enthusiast mysef, seeing him learn about patterns AND science was amazing.

    Great introduction to kaleidoscopes

    The theme was carried out effectively throughout the various projects, and I loved how easy it was for my son to assemble thanks to the clear instructions. There are many different activities that can be done with the materials given. The kaleidoscope challenges were a big hit!

    Fun and informative

    The materials included were sturdy and gave my daughter the opportunity to be creative by creating patterns and changing the angles of the mirrors to create new visual patterns. This crate merges a creative activity with a mathematical one and there was an interactive assembly with a great end product.

    Wonderful learning tool

    The activity lends itself to ongoing learning experiences, particularly with the mirror and the different sticker shapes that were sent. The ability to build two different kaleidoscopes allowed for the potential of continued learning and discussion with my child. The stand up kaleidoscope was our personal favorite!
