What age group is this comic kit for?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My 10-year-old, who loves to draw, enjoyed it but even with that it required persistence and we spread it over several weeks. My 8-year-old also spread it over several weeks and ended up skipping the coloring because the project felt large for him. They both loved seeing their comic books published! The age window is probably 2nd-7th grade, depending on the child's interest in writing and drawing.
