Before You Register

  1. Confirm that the kit is for your child’s age. Kits have designated ages based on their respective difficulty and the developmental ability required to complete the activity.

  3. Pay close attention to pickup times. Pickup will be available during the date range in each kit’s description. Kits unclaimed after the scheduled pickup week will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
