Description

This "Doing Good with Wood" kaleidoscope is different. You can use it to look at many different things. We use magnets to hold the viewing wheel together and to attach it to the mirror tube, so you can remove the wheel, take it apart, and fill it with other "stuff" to look at. We will fill it with plastic mosaic pieces, but translucent materials like flower petals and leaves also work very well.

Dimensions: 8.5" x 4.5" x 4.5"
