We had this as a project for the 7 and 9 year old during the holidays. They had help from their older cousins. It was a great group learning experience and the kids really liked the end product.

It was a gift for my granddaughter. She sent me a photo of her finished flashlight yesterday. It was challenging for her, but she enjoyed the project.
