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

Kaleidoscope is a long-time favorite attraction in Kansas City. Kids will go hands on with a variety of activities that will open their minds to the arts and creativity.

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!

Loved here all of my life and every time we come is still a blast. 40 minutes full of craft making. The girls love the blacklight room with the melted crayons. The puzzle area always fun that they can take home and do. Admission is free for all ages. Must do is you have little ones rain or shine!

We frequent here whenever in town. We have small children and they are always busy the entire time. This is a must with small children.

We really enjoyed the 40 minutes our kids got to spend doing "crafts" at Hallmark's Kaleidoscope at Crown Center. The staff were very friendly and made sure we got a 3-hour parking validation which saved us $9.00. Colouring, painting, & making a puzzle were things our 7/5/3 year olds could do and take home with them. It was a bit... More
