Hi my name is Elliott Kwong on behalf of Expert Village. Today I'm going to teach you how
to make a kaleidoscope. Now when I made my petri dish I decided to put some beads inside.
But you don't have to limit yourself to just finding beads. Try to look around your house
and find other things that you can put in. Such as little necklaces or little trinkets,
stuff like that. Here I have other stuff in here which is especially good. I have a the
beaded necklaces, little flowers with dice in here, another flower. Just little things
that might make a pattern look good. Also what you can do is you can take your petri
dish and like this one right here and you can get some pens and you can start drawing
designs on them. Then you just make a lot of colorful patterns on them. Then when you
put it into a kaleidoscope it will make a lot of cool patterns. You can find other things
such as like coins, coins are especially good, that would make a good pattern. Just be creative
and think about it I'm sure you can find a whole bunch of things that would make really
good designs and patterns.
