We Customize Projects to Each Child's Ability

Cutting bits of glass and gluing into place (with an adult's assistance) is safe and fun for kids from the ages of 5 and up.


Techniques range from simple "pick and glue" (ages 5+) to "limited cutting and glue" (ages 7-9), to "design, cut and place" (ages 10+).
