If you have young ones who love to use their hands and create things, or if you are the young one at heart, then this is the place to go. We have been taking our kids there for years, and even though our daughter is now 16, she still has fun when we go. Whether or not this is a... More

My husband and I took our 5yr. Old and he loved it. I definitely recommend this for children that like arts & crafts.

Creative place for kids and adults. Close to a lot of restaurants and attractions. Older kids might enjoy it a little more than our 2 year old.

Sponsored by Hallmark, several craft-type activities for younger kids (under 12). It's free too.Visits are timed and visitors are limited to their particular time frame. That makes handling the crowds easy and more fun for the kids.

This is a must do in Kansas City. Not only is it free but it is fun for the kids. Expect a crowd but once you get inside there are a number of stations so everyone spreads out.

To be able to have such an amazing creative space to enjoy for free is truly a treat. Sessions have specific start and end times so it best to plan ahead and reserve your place to make sure you can go at the time you wish. There are also some times reserved for school field trips. You can check for... More
