    My 3.5 year old daughter made this with my husband and could not be more excited! She is very excited to use it to pretend and real camp. Another high quality, educational, fun activity . Kiwico has been a lifeline during covid.
    Thank you times one hundred!

    So fun!

    My daughter loves the idea of camping so this lantern was just what she needed to really get that imagination fired up! It was fun to build and she’s been busy with it for quite some time. Love this one!

    Exploring Fun

    My 5 year old son and I built this together and had a blast! A few things he of course needed some help with, but the end result was perfect for my camping loving kid. He uses it frequently in his make believe adventures.

    Cool Lantern

    This is a cool looking lantern, that gives off a nice red glow. My only complaint is that to turn the lantern on and off you need to unscrew the top each time, which is a little tricky for the kids.

    Great instructions and keepsake

    Very good directions. My seven year old put it together with little help and she was so excited. Great keepsake!

    Loved the project!

    I love this lantern. My daughter was able to put it together in no time. It's great but I'm wondering if there is a way to figure out how to turn it on and off without unscrewing it. But I guess you want it to be like a traditional or old lamp where they used to do that, unscrew the top off to light it.
