Decorating a "magic" Kaleidoscope a quick and easy craft for Miss Two

  1. I had the inside cardboard roll from an old cling wrap, some clear contact, my little bag of bits (left over sequins and glitter that I shoved in a sandwich bag). Using a shallow baking tray I got Miss 2 to scatter the bits on the tray.
  2. While she did that I wrapped the cardboard roll in clear contact (you can use coloured for this part if you have it) with the sticky side on the outside and trim off any overlapping the roll.
  3. Secure the contact by folding it back on itself about (5cm) or if easier you could secure with sticky tape. As long as the sticky side of the contact is then on the outside 
  4. When she was done with the bits I gave her the roll and told her to roll it back and forth in the tray so all the bit stick to it.
  5. When she was finished rolling I wrapped the clear contact around it to seal it in. Then trimmed off the excess contact and there you go! They have their own personalised magic kaleidoscope to peek through.
