These colorful, paper-framed circles are carefully crafted to reveal hidden fun in the world around you. What type of fun? We're glad you asked! Rainbow Peepholes allow you to see secret rainbows that you normally can't see. The special lenses in the middle of the peepholes are designed to refract light creating hundreds of rainbows as you gaze through it.
Just like our Rainbow Glasses (WRBG-150), but more durable. Rainbow peepholes are great for younger kids, or students who are a little tough on classroom materials and are perfect for looking at holiday lights or fireworks! And who wants to enhoy the happiness and joy of rainbows by themselves? No one! That's why we include 30 colorful peepholes for you and an entire group of friends to go rainbow hunting together.
- Set of 30 Rainbow Peepholes
How Does It Work?
Rainbow Peepholes have special lenses that bend and separate light into the colors of the spectrum. When you look through them, rainbows magically appear.
What Does It Teach?
Teach kids about the nature of light and color. Discover that light consists of "waves" that can be seen as color when bent or separated by a prism or these amazing rainbow lenses.
- Rainbow Peepholes Review by Carmen Sanchez
I used the peepholes with my first graders with our basal reading selection Matias and the color of the sky. (Spanish title. I wanted them to play with them. They were instructed not to say anything until the whole class had their own peephole. It was fun to hear the excited remarks when they saw the "rainbow"! They had to draw what they saw in their science notebooks. They did a pretty good job. I also used Mouse Paint (from Boot Camp!!!!) and the color mixing activity. That's what the crystals were for... It takes a long time to do anything with these little ones, so... the color trays are not quite done. But it has been great Spangler fun!!!! (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Rainbow Peepholes Review by J Rothfuss
These simple little things are a blast. The students figured out that layering them produced even cooler results. They are pumped to use them at our "Bending Light" booth at Famly Science Night. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Okay Review by Lin Mohler
Ours were not as colorful as the ones in the picture, and they were quite small. When you looked through the center, the images were just a bit blurry around the edges with a bit of a "rainbow" effect. Disappointing. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Rainbow Peepers Review by Jean E Shea
I've purchased this product three times. Needless to say, I'm very happy with them. I use them to teach about color, light, refraction with students in pre-school through grade 6! They're a big hit with parents too. The only problem is - the kids want them, and I can't say no! Which is why I just placed my third order!! (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Rainbow peepholes Review by kathy m.
Those little things were the best science example of fractured light we have ever seen. Although the children had to be careful not to touch the lens they immediately broke into scientific comments as to why they were seeing rainbows. I would recommend this product for school-age children. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Wonderful rainbows! Review by Mrs. Lynch
My preK and K students love these! I use real prisms to demonstrate refraction and rainbows, but I love having these child-safe rainbow peepholes to share with my Math and Science Buddies. They are wowed with all the bright colors they see when looking at the lights in our classroom. Excellent product! (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Pre-school Enrichment Teacher Review by Ellen
Watching preschoolers check out all of the light sources was amazing! One 4-year old asked me, "What would we see if you lit a candle?" So we tried it! (Posted on 5/31/13)
- They are just the cutest things EVER Review by Mark Derail
These beauties captured the imagination of young kids.
I had to wait for the excitement over the Windbags to die down first.
Used at a fundraiser event. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Be careful Review by JR
The actual lens material is too delicate. It does work well, though. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Amazing Review by Barb Field
I often do shows as "Prof. Womboggle", and I have brought the "donuts" with me in a real donut box. They are great to introduce my light and color experiments, and of course the kids love to take these "donuts" home with them. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- Totally FUN! Review by Cheryl Mosier
I use these every year with my 9th graders when we talk about Spectroscopy and they LOVE them. I've found them to be much more durable than the glasses - they last longer and are cheaper. I've had LOADS of students taking pictures with their phones and the peepholes - they thought the different light bulbs and gas tubes were AWESOME! (Posted on 5/31/13)
