Kaleidoscope is so much fun for kids and adults!! Hallmark out did themselves! Kids get to go through and make and experience all sorts of neat things! Kids get to take their crafts home and parents get to go through with their kids and experience the fun too! This is a MUST if you visit KC or you live there!!!

If you are looking for a fun and free experience to do with kids, this place is fantastic. They have loads of crafting stations, plenty of neat statues and weird wall designs perfect for kids to enjoy! Our nephews favorite is always the glow-in-the-dark crayon station!

After you arrive you are given a FREE ticket for your assigned time. Enter in and kid's can roam free amongst crafting supplies with a fun interactive interior. Each group has 40 minutes to take advantage of everything. This is plenty of time. There are many stations, but the highlight for our six year old were the make your own... More

for a day trip. Eat at Crown Center across the street. You can also take them to LEGOLAND and/or the aquarium.

Part of the Hallmark Crown Center, Kaleidoscope is a hands-on creative family experience that even our teens enjoyed. Multiple artist stations provide materials and supplies to unleash your child's artistic potential. Kids can make their own jigsaw puzzle, and crank it through the puzzle cutter. There are places to paint, color, and craft, as well as a black-light room, with... More

Kaleidoscope is a place where kids and parents alike can use their imaginations to make items from paper products. It is free to enter. All the products are provided and unless you hurry, there is not enough time to do it all. I think they only let you stay for 45 minutes or so. Our grandkids did not want to... More

We enjoyed our time at Kaleidoscope and loved that it was a free option to do on vacation when we ware spending so much money everywhere else. My kids aren't super creative so I wish they had maybe a few more examples of pieces of art to make or a little more direction from the staff.

You can't beat a free attraction. The children find tons of things to do and they don't want to leave when their alloted time is up. There are tons of crafts, creative kids love it! We had some extra time before the tour started so we went thru the Hallmark Museum. There is an automated bow making machine you can... More

If you have a younger kid who enjoys arts and crafts, this place is awesome! They can color cardstock and then cut it into a puzzle. There's also a glow in the dark area with special paints and makers. Lots of other little arts and craft stations based on what they have. Try to get here early to reserve your... More
