Comments about EduCraft® Kaleidoscopes Craft Kit :

I was planning on using this kit for a library program aimed at grades 2 - 5, the excellent kit I had used in the past was discontinued. On my first look the kits appeared well made if a little fiddly for young hands to manage. I decided to pre-fold the mirrors, then make up one of the kits. The mirrors did not give a good reflection at all. The tape supplied was very difficult to use, it kept falling out of it's holder. I had to substitute mylar mirror that I purchased elsewhere and 'good quality' tape. I have not yet taught the program with this kit but am not looking forward to the problems that I anticipate encountering!

Comments about EduCraft® Kaleidoscopes Craft Kit :

These kaleidoscope kits incorporate everything you need for a STEAM activity. Kids use their science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills to create this fun toy. The end product is of good quality and actually works. I used these at a very large Girl Scouting event. Over 200 girls made one of these kaleidoscopes. The girls were mostly ages 7-12 and it took them at least 20 minutes each to make one. Many needed adult help, especially the younger ones, but they were so proud of their end products! They didn't even realize they were learning because they were having fun and making a craft. The directions are clear and the quality of the materials is good. Everything was ready to go - you just open the box and all the materials are there!

  • Steam Activities

Comments about EduCraft® Kaleidoscopes Craft Kit :

We purchased these for a STEAM activity focusing on Optics and Art for a community art festival. Very affordable, as we needed a large number, and the quality of the components seems better than previous kits we have used, as there is an actual tube and not a flat cardboard you have to form and tape, which was difficult for our younger kids. Just what we needed! And the quick shipping and customer service is great!
