    My daugter told me that her and her daughter really enjoyed this crate. Ny granddaughter was amazed to see how the capillaries colors went up and colored the leaves. What a great learning experience

    My 7 year old was able to complete it herself. She learned about the science behind capillary action while creating a nice, simple art piece which she has displayed in her room. My daughter wishes there were more colors included so she could create flowers of varying colors. She recommends adding blue so she'd have 3 colors she could mix for different colored flowers.

    The multi-step flower-dye project was a lot of fun for my 5-year old and me. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and the result is pretty too. The tree balancing game hasn't interested my 5-year old at all. Generally, the games have not been so engaging to my children.
