Make a Toy Periscope
Instead of coming out of the stadium/field in a sour mood, carry your very own periscope to the next match.
A periscope is an optical instrument that comes handy to see things from an angle where it is otherwise difficult to see them. Like in submarines. People in submarines use a periscope to see objects above the ocean.
The things you need:
1. Two empty cornflake cartons
2. Two plain mirrors
3. Two pieces of cardboard
4. A pair of scissors
5. Packing tape
Step 1: Cut the tops from both the cartons.
Step 2: Place the cardboard to the bottom of both the cartons at a 45 degree angle and secure it tightly.
Step 3: Mount a mirror on each of the cardboard and secure it with the help of some tape.
Step 4: Cut out a one-inch square hole directly in front of the mirror in each of the cartons.
Step 5: Place the two cartons on top of each other – open ends together.
Make sure that the mirrors are placed at a 45 degree angle. Otherwise the periscope won’t work!
