Curiosity Kits produces an Adventure Club line well worth looking at. A good starting point is this make-your-own kaleidoscope.

The skills used in accomplishing this project involve reading, sequencing, gluing, designing and decorating. Once you put the eyepiece in place, children will have a wonderful product they will enjoy for a long time to come.

It is simple to complete and all of the materials necessary are in the package including cardboard tubes, eyepiece, trinkets, reflective material and glue, plus there is some holographic paper to decorate the outside. The step-by-step instructions show children how to assemble the kit.

Children will have a great time putting it all together, decorating and using it. They will learn what goes in to making a kaleidoscope. This is a terrific project and a product that children will have a lot of fun using. The ever-changing views will captivate children.

The original kaleidoscope was designed in 1817 by Sir David Brewster, a Scottish scientist. He invented it to help artists.

Curiosity Kits created the "make-your-own" version in 1990, and it became an instant hit. It has continued to prove a great basic product for generations.
