Great Product!

Bought this kit to use with my 6 & 4 year old boys as a summer activity. I was looking for something I could do with both kids together and something to introduce the growth mindset to my non-reader. It’s been great! It’s easy to begin using immediately and the activities are appropriate for both boys. My kids are engaged and love all the activities we’ve done so far.
