I bought this for my 10 year niece who loves arts and crafts, but has done it all. I'm super crafty too, and I was struggling to find something new for her to try craft-wise that's age-appropriate. Then I found this great kaleidoscope kit and knew it would be a fun, creative exercise and create a lasting gift to look at again and again. I'll keep looking back to the catalog for other do-it-yourself crafty kits.

I got this for my cousin for his 7th birthday. He thought it was pretty cool (I also got kudos points from his parents) and we had fun deciding what should go into the rotating part to make the pattern when you look into it.

The only thing is the directions where a little confusing. It's not like I'm bad at directions ( I can read Ikea direction really well) its just they described things in a weird way. Really just use your common sense and it'll be fine. Also the glue took a REALLY long time to dry.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Make Your Own Kaleidoscope Set:

      They give you a ton of confetti, but if the child uses more than a tiny bit, all the light is blocked and you can't see anything. I found it to work much better when the bottom part with the confetti is held away from the larger tube a little bit. Maybe if there was a clear tube in-between to let in more light, it would be much better ... Also, it was very pricey.

            I purchased this as a gift for my 5-year-old grandson. The happy phone call from my daughter after the two assembled the k-scope included the comments that it was interesting to assemble and add around-the-house elements to the tube to change the light. So much so, in fact, that they added to much and had to take some of it out and re-assemble. This, in turn, helped both appreciate the ease of assembly and how simple items can have unique effects.

              The package was shipped very quickly. This is for my special needs nephew for Christmas. I wanted to get him something he could make himself and use, and something that would peel him away from his tv touchscreens for a while. I truly hope he'll enjoy this, he like to build and be creative.
