Make a Keyhole Spy Glass
This is a very simple activity that involves making your own spy gadget. The keyhole spy tool will allow its user to look through keyholes or very tight spaces! The result is a “fisheye” view of the room.
What You Need:
- Clear glass marble
- Black construction paper
- Clear tape
What You Do:
- Have your child measure and cut a piece of black construction paper approximately 4” x 10.”
- At one end of the strip have your child place the marble in the center of the paper and roll the paper as tight as possible.
- Using a pencil, poke the marble to one end of the roll until it slightly protrudes from the paper as shown. Secure this end with a piece of tape around the paper.
- Place the marble end of the spy tool against a keyhole or small space and look through the other area. Ask your child what he sees!
Try the keyhole spy tool in several different spaces and see what works best!
