Kaleidoscope is a place where kids and parents alike can use their imaginations to make items from paper products. It is free to enter. All the products are provided and unless you hurry, there is not enough time to do it all. I think they only let you stay for 45 minutes or so. Our grandkids did not want to... More

We enjoyed our time at Kaleidoscope and loved that it was a free option to do on vacation when we ware spending so much money everywhere else. My kids aren't super creative so I wish they had maybe a few more examples of pieces of art to make or a little more direction from the staff.

You can't beat a free attraction. The children find tons of things to do and they don't want to leave when their alloted time is up. There are tons of crafts, creative kids love it! We had some extra time before the tour started so we went thru the Hallmark Museum. There is an automated bow making machine you can... More

If you have a younger kid who enjoys arts and crafts, this place is awesome! They can color cardstock and then cut it into a puzzle. There's also a glow in the dark area with special paints and makers. Lots of other little arts and craft stations based on what they have. Try to get here early to reserve your... More

We visit here a few times a year. It provides just the right amount of time for the kids to express their creativity with whatever tools are available without them getting burnt out. Our favorites are - make your own puzzle, the painting area (the dryer is very cool) and the glow in the dark room. I am always amazed... More

Kaleidoscope is an excellent choice if you can get a ticket. The attraction is free and lasts just under and hour from arrival to departure. The children will be allowed to leave with a bag full of arts and crafts. It is an excellent stop for anybody with children, my toddler didn't care about the arts and crafts, but it... More

We had a great time at Kaleidoscope with our toddler. There are numerous stations throughout the facility so even a little one with a short attention span has plenty of choices. The quality of the art supplies is high, no expense has been spared to provide anything and everything children and their parents might need to create all kinds of... More

My wife wanted to take our daughter to Kaleidoscope because they are both really into crafts. My son and I went along and I really though we would just sit and watch for an hour. Was I wrong. After looking around a bit I decided to jump right in and make my own stuff. You can create your own puzzle... More
