This is a really nice and fun activity kit. The eggs are pre-cut on firm posterboard type paper and come with ribbons to hang and tools to do the scratching designs. It requires no equipment or effort other than to open it and get creative! Adults can make intricate Ukranian egg type patterns if they are inclined and children of all ages can make anything from scribbles to complicated designs based on their age and imagination. It's inexpensive and fun and easy-- a really great way to have some effortless artistic time with the family!
