Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and easy bday craft I bought a bunch of sequins and let the kids use markers and sequins to decorate these. Both the boys and girls ( ages6-8)) enjoyed playing with these. They were a big hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fun! We had an island-themed VBS this year and the kids LOVED these! They are already assembled and the kids were able to decorate them however they wanted. Markers, stickers, pom poms, glitter glue...each one was so unique and they loved that they could do anything with it. These are a great value for the money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay I thought they would be a bit sturdier. I am using them with preschoolers for VBS. I don’t expect they will last but a day or two

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect DIY For A Kids Party! These little explorer DIY telescopes are perfect for any kids party! I used them for my daughter's preschool graduation party so they could make one for their explorations in Kindergarten. We used washi tape, adhesive jewels, stickers, and markers so ZERO cleanup after! Made really well and overall durable. Worth the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase I bought these for my daughters school project and thought they would be flimsy and not really very durable, however, that was not the case at all. We received the package and they were well made and the cardboard was very thick and durable. We were able to decorate them in many different ways and they never lost their shape or broke in any way. Very happy with these and she got a A!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Craft of the Week! These telescopes were the highlight of our VBS week! The kids loved these, even the adults. The kids spent way more time on them than we thought coloring and adding stickers and gems. It's important to explain to them to make sure they only put gems on the outermost tube only otherwise they will fall off when the telescope is collapsed. The kids will keep these crafts for a long time vs. a paper towel roll that would be trashed.
