Kids love using chalk outdoors to create pictures on sidewalks. However, for some the fun of open-ended creating is limited, intimidating, or boring after a while. This drawing machine is especially fun for kids who are more interested in puzzle solving and guided art instruction, but the whole family will love creating huge chalk drawings. It's difficult to explain how this contraption works without making it seem complicated and cumbersome, but in actuality, it's very easy and fun to use. Included in the set are 10 patterns to follow, 5 jumbo chalk sticks, and the machine itself. The machine is made out of durable, lightweight plastic and features a circular base with letters lining the edge, a top that rotates and clicks onto each letter, and a tape measurer. Holes in the top, base, and at the end of the tape measurer, as well as arrows on the base, show kids how to align the machine to create pictures. Basically, you're creating a dot-to-dot puzzle using the codes on the pattern cards. The cards show what the finished picture will look like (like a butterfly, fish, heart, star, etc.) and then give 2-part codes (like A-21, B-12, S-8, etc.) that tell how to create it. You start with a large dot, line up the machine on the dot, twist the top until it is set on the letter in the code, pull out the tape measurer until it reaches the number in the code, and draw another large there. Connect the two dots, realign the machine on the new dot, and repeat the steps until the drawing is finished. Puzzles range from 10-40 dots and once the outline is finished, suggestions on how to color and decorate are included on the cards. The drawings are large, usually measuring about 3' x 3', but some are larger, like the T-rex that measures 5' x 9' and the rocket that's 6' x 2'. A lock on the tape measurer makes the machine easy for kids to use alone, but a pair or even group of kids could also use the machine to create the pictures together. ~Rachel
