    My 6-year-old granddaughter loved this kit. I read the directions and provided some holding help but otherwise she was able to complete the project herself. The light is quite bright and should be great for a night walk.



    My niece loved this. She had so much fun collecting the nature items to add to the kit. I got a picture of her and the finished product and she looked thrilled to have put it together.



    Fabulous item! My granddaughter and I created the project together, and she is looking forward to making the second shade with the remaining materials.
