  • It depends on if they are numbered dots or not. Some kids might not know how to count yet.

  • No numbered dots just dots along a pumpkin.

  • I definately think they're old enough to. With a little guidence my one year old would be able to handle that kind of a job. I think it's more of a question of do they have the patients for it, because a child over the age of one can do any of those projects.

  • my 2.5 and 4.5 year old both do the numbered ones (up to 10 for 2.5 year old).
