if you go to your provincial or state government web page there should be links on how to apply for a patent and the requirements that you need to fulfill. there are pros and cons of patents. they cost a lot of money to obtain and you are responsible to make sure that no one is copying your idea and you are financialy responsible for any legal fees. (at least in Ontario Canada)

I can't imagine that there's anything patentable in a kit unless you've invented something. See a patnet attorney.
