Kaleidoscopes are so much fun to play with. Did you know that there is a lot of science behind how a kaleidoscope works? 

k-header

Your kids will learn so much when they create their very own kaleidoscope. This is a great Science STEM activity from Buggy and Buddy that will have your children cutting out, assembling and decorating their kaleidoscope. They will learn about prisms, and how light reflects onto the designs of their spinning circle. As they play with their new toy they created, they will be exploring light, reflections, and symmetry. I love incorporating fun crafts and DIY projects into a science lesson.

You can grab all of the details for this fun project HERE.
