This fun and creative pre-craft kit helps kids make their own markers that they can then use in other activities. The system is truly inventive and really piqued the curiosity of testers. This product is a mix of science project and art project. Kids loved mixing their own colors and making their own markers. Making the different color concoctions in the beakers and then watching the colors get soaked up into the cores was very entertaining for everyone. The clear marker casings are what help make the magic something that everyone can witness and enjoy. It really is fascinating and educational seeing how things work and how they are made. Mixing colors is the creative part here and Crayola provides a nice guide to color mixing. The set is a self-contained laboratory, and it helps keep messes to a minimum as everything stays in the kit.
