My Thoughts

This was a pretty neat art project. It was a little messy and I wasn't sure how I'd like it since it used milk and how the art would smell after. The box comes with a variety of different ideas you can do with your child, but they all basically deal with milk, adding the coloring, and swirling around with paper to make some sort of design.

The booklet that came with it gave insight as to why certain things worked with little science tips here and there to learn. One box comes with the ability to do several science experiments. This kept my daughter entertained on a rainy day.

At this point, we've used up all the paper that came in the kit, so I am hoping that regular paper will work the next time she wants to play with this.  When the artwork dried, it gave ideas about turning it into card to give someone or gift tags.

I would get this for my daughter again. She had a great time with it, and she is older, so this was something she was able to do on her own with little supervision. Clean up wasn't too bad when we were done.
