Find out when the family sessions are and you will happily entertain kids from two through ten with arts and crafts galore. Let their creativity shine with all the fun materials and zany atmosphere dreamed up by Hallmark artists. Located in Crown Center. Plus it is free! As a bonus, park underneath and they will validate your parking ticket.

If you have young ones who love to use their hands and create things, or if you are the young one at heart, then this is the place to go. We have been taking our kids there for years, and even though our daughter is now 16, she still has fun when we go. Whether or not this is a... More

Creative place for kids and adults. Close to a lot of restaurants and attractions. Older kids might enjoy it a little more than our 2 year old.

Sponsored by Hallmark, several craft-type activities for younger kids (under 12). It's free too.Visits are timed and visitors are limited to their particular time frame. That makes handling the crowds easy and more fun for the kids.

This is a must do in Kansas City. Not only is it free but it is fun for the kids. Expect a crowd but once you get inside there are a number of stations so everyone spreads out.
