Finished Sample

Here is the finished sample of the kaleidoscope. The standing example shows the layers possible for decorating. the laying example is the one for the class I will teach the children. A simple flat sleeve made from construction paper or something similar they can decorate easily.
I can't remember all the questions that have been asked of me for this project.
It is all constructed of paper, and plastic, no glass. Child safe!
I am teaching the construction so IF they choose they can adapt the lesson to stronger materials...brass tubing and mirrors for example, and construct a "true scope".
This one will work though.
The class will be given through the local library.
I am not sure about the cost yet.
I think $15.00 is a fair price per person though. It will be a 2 day class approximately 3 hours each session.
They supply the paper tube...I will provide the rest.
So, IF this sells...I will have a picture up of the projects they complete.

I think that's cheap for a 2 day class. But then again the economy sucks so...
It turned out great! I wish you could do a shot of what's inside, like if we were looking in the eyepiece.

This really did turn out classy. It looks like you have it well planned and thought out, too. I hope your class goes over well. I can tell you have a lot invested in it (time, planning, etc.) so I have my fingers crossed that all goes great!!
