Ice Skating Rink
What you get
Get into gear and engineer a miniature, mechanical ice-skating rink — powered by gears! Learn to tinker with gears and rig up a motor, then decorate a unique winter wonderland scene complete with festive characters. Turn the motor on to make the gears rotate, then watch your snowman, penguin, and gingerbread man spin around and "skate" on the ice!

It was a very cute project - worked well when it was assembled
It was a great family project to get the kids building and have holiday decorations. The instructions are clear and pretty easy to follow. The younger kids need a bit of help.
