Promo For Children's Class

I am building a cardboard kaleidoscope called a uses only mirrors and nothing at the end but the view to bounce around the inside.

Here is a close up view of the isn't much but you get the 'picture'.

This is a children's class far the basic structure is built..I plan to decorate in just 1 version there are too many ways to go into.
Basically my plan is to do an altered technique on the outside.
The construction itself is using a paper towel center plastic sheeting on white cardboard for the mirrors
and plastic wrap for ends..lots of masking tape to hold it all together.
Right now I have heavy glue over the masked endings to seal it all up fairly well and tomorrow I will begin altering.
Everything is kid safe...but will be adult gorgeous.
This much has taken me 2, this much is a 3 hour version of the class.
I figure a week of class, 2 hours each visit.

This is going to be so cool! What ages are your kids going to be? How many are you going to have? Did you think this up on your own?
