First, I'll tell you all the Mom reasons why I loved this kit. The suggested retail price of the kit ($14.99) is very reasonable especially keeping in mind that the kit itself includes the following:
Second Born loved the paints and brush that came with the kit. In particular, the paint is water soluble so that when she made a mistake painting, she could rinse it off the glass dome and start over. (I loved that as well.) The instructions that came in the box were also easy (and fun) for her to read, including not only instructions for painting but also for putting together magnets and/or tie tacks (as well as some fun facts and extra creative options). Look--here's the Moana Saves magnet she made! It has a place of honor on our fridge.
