Introduction: Egg Shell Kaleidoscope

How to make a functional eggshell kaleidoscope.

Step 1:

Materials Needed:

Step 2:

Cut a hole at the fat end of the egg to fit the size of your acrylic gem holder. Then cut off the bottom of the egg to fit the eye piece.
Cut the pipe to fit the length of the egg when it is attached to the gem holder.
Cut the mirrors to fit the length of the pipe.
Glue acrylic gem holder and PVC pipe together and glue finding and acrylic lens together.
Tape surface glass together in a triangle. Then insert them in the PVC pipe.

Put gems into the gem holder leaving enough space for them to tumble as you turn the kaleidoscope.
Insert the pipe assembly into the egg and glue in place.
