Kids go gaga over anything that reads “Disney Frozen” and the Uncle Milton’s Disney Frozen “Dream Scenes” light-up activity kit is no exception. If your kids like to doing crafts then they will like this kit. The Uncle Milton Disney’s Frozen Craft Kit features “Winter in Arendelle” and is designed for kids ages 5 and up. No glue or special tools are required, except a Phillips-head screwdriver to open the battery compartment. Everything snaps together. Batteries are required to make it light up and they are not included.
Uncle Milton sent us one of these kits to test out for our article.
The instructions included in the box are very clear and have both written instructions and illustrations to help you figure out what to do.
The first step is to put batteries in the base. It requires three 1.5V AA/LR6 batteries. Then you slide the dream scene pieces in the slots in the base. There are 4 rows spaced out evenly and each scene piece goes into a different row. This creates a multi-dimensional affect making it look 3D.
Next you snap one side on and then the other and slide the background sheet in the last slot. This was quite a challenge. The sides kept coming off. We found that if you have two people, one to slide the background in place and the other person to hold the sides, it works much better.
The next assembly step is the top piece that holds the side pieces together. Once again, a bit of a challenge because it didn’t want to snap together. Once it was snapped together we found that it would come apart easily so we put a wide piece of tape over the top and that solved the problem.
Now you need to slide the front facing frame into position in the front and then snap the bottom bar into place to keep it altogether.
The last step is to decorate the front frame. The Uncle Milton Disney Frozen Dream Scenes kit comes with raised, rubber snowflake stickers so you can decorate the front panel. The girls took turns putting them on. The stickers came off easily so they could move them around until they got them where they wanted them.
When you press the button on the front, the Disney Frozen dream scene lights up. Within a few seconds it changes colors – from green to purple to red and back again.
This is a very cool little craft project for girls and it is useful when they are finished. After testing the Dream Scenes overnight we found that it does have a timer and goes off by itself. That’s a great idea because it helps to extend the battery life. The Disney Frozen “Dream Scenes” by Uncle Milton is the perfect thing to put on your child’s nightstand as a nightlight.
