This is a freebie for families - Hallmark takes their scraps and lets kids go wild with their imagination for 40 minutes at a time. My wife and I take our daughter there multiple times through out the year. She can make a puzzle, paint a picture and put it in the drying unit, get stickers and she can decorate... More

Young kids would really love this. It is free and offers a lot of activities around art. My son is 7 and still enjoyed, but he wasn't crazy about it. I think that if he was one or two years younger, he would have really loved this.

This is a wonderful experience for children. Adults will enjoy it as well. Many hands on activities that the children (up to age 12) will enjoy, as well as being very organized so it makes it easy to move around with more than one child. Good, educational and a fun experience. Highly recommend it!
