Review:
If your refrigerator gallery is running out of exhibition space for your child's artwork, this kit provides a practical and creative solution. Five various-sized, heavy-duty cardstock boards with picture frame stands allow easy display of the “canvasses.” Hundreds of Made By Hands trademark colorful die cut pieces invite little hands to create a portrait, a landscape, an animal or an “Oh, now I see it.” Most of the die cuts are simple geometric shapes so the art takes on almost a mosaic style. Smaller children can simply glue the shapes randomly or in easy patterns, and older children can build more complex images with the shapes.
