Price: Free
Hours: Art session times vary.

Kaleidoscope is a magical art studio where children can be creative and feel good about their own special ideas. Creating with bows, cardboard, jazzy junk, making puzzles and painting with melted crayons are just a few of the fun things to do. Independent art sessions for children ages 5-12 and family art Sessions for children of all ages! Kaleidoscope is free as a public service by Hallmark. Call for session times.

Way back in the 1960s, a bright, bright Kansas City man named Don Hall had a bright, bright idea. He got together some of the other idea makers at his company, Hallmark, and they cooked up an imagination machine, where children from all over our planet could explore, create and cook up their own bright, bright, ideas.

Millions of children across the United States have been creating ever since using melted crayons, polka dots of all sizes, zig and zags, shooting stars and lots of other jazzy junk that tickle the minds of young artists everywhere.

Kaleidoscope's imaginative worlds inspire each child's creativity. Children explore exciting environments as they discover the joy of creativity by making their own amazing art from Hallmark scrap materials.

Kaleidoscope gives children (and grown-ups, too) a unique opportunity to express themselves in a supportive, encouraging environment. At Kaleidoscope, every idea is a good idea!

It doesnt matter what time of year it is, this place is always packed! My kids walk out with a bag of their own artwork that keeps them occupied for days. They love to make the puzzles and hats fit for a king or queen! Truly, one of the best places in KC to let your child be creative and have fun!
