• put it in perspective

    My daughter is at the age where crafts rule. Each year for her birthday, we decide on an art activity that ties into her party’s theme. This year, we made ball and paddles with a carnival motif, and the year before that, it was sand art for a beach scavenger hunt. When she turned 5, we did an around the world party, and the kids made their own kaleidoscopes…but sadly, they (the kaleidoscopes, not the kids) fell apart before the party was even over. So much for investing in party store supplies; you get what you pay for, as the saying goes. One kaleidoscope kit that does not disappoint is the new one from Creativity for Kids. Whereas other models have flimsy materials at best, this one has a sturdy tube and awesome decorative supplies to make it your own. But what really stood out for us is the fact that you can add whatever combination of contents you like: from colorful beads and fabric flowers, to mosaic pieces and shiny sequins. And if you get bored with the view, simply unscrew the lid of the refillable cup and change the materials to whatever you like. If only we could change our perspective on life this easily!…

    In a Nutshell: Serious crafters will appreciate a kit that is both creative as it is colorful. Make Your Own Kaleidoscope is appropriate for ages 5 and up.
