Your children's eyes will light up with excitement as they spend their 50 minutes trying to accomplish as many art projects as possible. You might want to start them on the painting table and puzzle table as soon as possible so they know they can finish those before their time is up.

Hallmark Visitor Center sponsors this. All the extra crafty supplies go there and the kids can make all kinds of things. The kids liked it.

Kaleidoscope was one of my favorite places to go as a kid. This place is full of fun and excitement. If your child enjoy creating things, this is a must attend. It is free admission and they allow 45 minute sessions. It is located in Crown Center about 5 minutes from our famous Power & Light district. Great Kansas City... More

Making the puzzles was everyone's favorite, but all was great. We go for field trips, and all the kids have a great time. It really is fun to just watch the kids enjoy it too.

This is a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. It's next to LEGOLAND so make a day of it. Everyone can explore all the different products and create all sorts of fun and FREE items to take home

This place was awesome!! Took two of my boys here and they had a blast doing all of the fun creative things. Best of all it didn't make an impact on my already tight budget.

Show up early to get FREE entrance tickets for a time that works well for you. Once you are in, your child gets to be totally creative with black light paint, a dance station (duck low to enter!), puzzles waiting to be created, watercolors, and lots of chances to make arts and crafts! Hallmark has definitely made an impressive attraction... More

One great place to take kids and best - it is FREE. Kids are given 45 minutes of time to do arts and crafts that they can take home. Near Crown Center and does validate parking. Next to Hallmark museum, which is free also.

My 5 year old loved this place. WE went back 3 times during spring break. She liked making puzzles and cards. The one thing that would have been nice is having some glue sticks, everything must be taped on, which is hard for little fingers to break off tape. They will validate your parking card if you park in crown... More

It simply a really cute Free thing to do in KC. You kids will love the 50 minutes they spend there and ask to go back again. This was my first time visiting. Although my kids have been on school field trips. I know understand the hype. Again it's Free.
