This is a fantastic place go take the kids and it us free. They really enjoy making things and doing it themselves.

My son is almost 10, so at the upper end of the age recommendation. But it was still a fun place to visit for 40 minutes, and he loves the cards, bookmarks, and puzzle he created. For younger kids, especially, a fun - and free! - place to visit in KC.

We'd heard of Kaleidoscope but didn't know what to expect. We showed up one afternoon and attempted to get tickets. Fortunately we were successful. Our kids, ages 7 and 5, loved it. Their only disappointment was that it only lasted 40 minutes. Hard to complain about something that's completely free and a high-quality activity for kids, but if I could... More

As a guy, I had no idea what this place was like. Since it is in Crown Center, you know Hallmark has something to do with this. Well imagine all those people making cards all day and the stuff they throw away ends up in this other worldly room of yarn, shiny cardboard, letters, tape, and sparkles. Women that scrapbook...

The people at Kaleidoscope were so kind and helpful. The kids loved making things to take home. What a great way to recycle scraps from Hallmark cards.

This is a wonderful place for free. I had high expectations, but my kids did not get into it. I have a tween and a teen. We did make a few things however.

This review is based more on my kids than myself as I was not inside. The best part about this is that it is free. You take your kid(s) here and drop them off. They are supervised by several trained people. You are informed of how long it will last so that you can be prepared to pick them up... More

Our intention was to see the Hallmark Visitors Center and we were fortunate to stumble on their complimentary Kaleidoscope kids’ craft time. It’s located next door to the actual Hallmark Visitors Center and kids get to run around really fun rooms decorating scraps of paper with paint, markers, glue, you name it. So FUN! As for the actual visitors center,... More

Whenever we are in downtown we make a visit to kaleidoscope. They have multiple 40min sessions everyday, love their wax paints and florescent light exhibit. Kids will have a blast n you can take all their art work to home. It would be great if they had glue or stapler available.
