I got the Circus Kit for my boys. I was excited about this one because it had two decoding mirrors and quite a few coloring pages, along with a few activity pages. My boys (7 and 5) absolutely LOVED these! They sat down and had them all done in less than an hour!
Here they are working on some of the coloring pages.
Here is one that my five year old did:
Here is what it looks like on paper:
Here is what it looks like in the decoder:
The activity pages were a bit hard for them. I think most teens and older kids would have a great time with some of the activity pages. They were even challenging for me. One activity is you were given 4 dots on a piece of paper and you were suppose to draw a cross (or plus sign) as reflected in the decoder, yeah, not as easy as it sounds.
The only thing I would have done differently is follow the guidance of using the pages they sent as master copies. That is right, you are allowed to make any and as many copies of these pages as you would like. That way you kids and continue to do them over and over again! I wish I read that before my boys colored ALL of them, oh well.
