    The rainbow box provided three fun and creative ways to learn about the color prism. The wipe off sheet kept my daughter busy for hours making different pictures to put in her light box. I loved that it sparked her creativity with the customizable designs and patterns for the mini lantern.

    Fun and colorful

    Every project helped build on my 5 year old's knowledge of primary and secondary colors. The kit was so easy to assemble and every step was thought out well. My son loved it, and further piqued his interest in light and color. The accompanying literature was helpful and interesting as well.

    Studying light

    My son absolutely loved the color glasses. He wandered around the house looking at all the different lights for hours, including the Christmas tree lights. I also loved the mixed color lights lantern because it was something he can keep and enjoy in his room as a mini night light.

    nice experiments

    My daughter loved putting the viewer together and doing all the experiments with the bracelet in the sun. She also enjoyed coloring the sheets and watching them glow in the UV light. She was able to follow along with the directions to figure out how to put it all together.

    UV Light Fun!

    I loved that each piece had other activities to further my son's experience. It made the fun go farther than one project. We could enjoy doing multiple things which was great for him to really start understanding UV light. We really enjoyed the crate and I can say his favorite part was making the bracelet and having something he could wear and show off.

    nice family activity

    We loved it. It was nice to sit down with our little girl to watch her and help her with her crate. We enjoy an evening of family time without being in front of the screen.

    interesting, but little young for 4 year old

    I liked that my son was interested in making and using the ultraviolet light viewer. Some of the steps were too hard for my son to do on his own (opening and installing the brads) so I needed to help. He's only 4, so maybe that's why, but I would love for him to be able to complete it on his own.

    Perfect for my grandson

    My grandson loved everything about the crate! He got bored when it came time to read all the info about UV lights but...I read it to him and he loved it. We still have some things to try from the materials but enjoyed doing the experiments and look forward to some crazy jello.

    My daughter had a great time putting this together. She also learned a lot from the experience.
