A DIY experience that is beautiful and amazing, you'll be building your own kaleidoscope.
Kaleidoscopes are an incredible tool for witnessing the effects of refracting light, but putting your own kaleidoscope together can be a pain. We’ve simplified the process using our famous Rainbow Peepholes. Witness a literal rainbow of colors when you build your own kaleidoscope with the Homemade Kaleidoscope experiment.
- Rainbow Peephole
- Cardboard tube
- Electrical tape (or similar)
- (Optional) Tin foil
- Adult supervision
Using scissors, cut a small piece of electrical tape.
Use the tape to cover the remainder of the cardboard tube, giving it that professional look and feel.
Look through the tube, rotating it slowly!
