This was great, the only downfall is I wish the sessions were longer! You only get 45 min to create. My kids could have spent hours there. It's a must do! more »
This place was great for our young kids. My older kids (12 and 9) were hoping it was more like a childrens museum with different activities but it is more like a craft room where kids can paint, draw,... more »
This was a great little place for the kiddos. They have cute little stations the kids play at and create things. The glow in the dark station was great even for the grown ups. The glow in the dark included painting, coloring, and some cool electronic items. There was painting station. Paint a party hat or make a crown and add all kinds of fun things to it! The make your own puzzle station was awesome! Only thing is the tape ran out in most of the stations and staples. Other than that the staff was super nice and helpful.
This was okay. For free entertainment it was awesome! Just not much to do.. Lots of arts and crafts so i guess you could keep doing coloring etc but that can get old quickly for little ones. Again neat place but a little lacking!
