2. Use thick paper to roll a cylinder with an inner diameter of 40 mm and a length of 135 mm, and install the triangular prism into the cylinder. At one end of the tube, a circular transparent glass sheet with a diameter of 40 mm and a circular paper ring are installed as observation holes; at the other end, a circular transparent glass sheet is placed close to the prism and put in some colored debris ( Color broken glass, broken plastic or cellophane scraps, small animals on sugar paper, etc.), separate a little, and then install a round ground glass sheet. The glass can be blocked with a hard paper ring to prevent it from falling. At this point, the kaleidoscope is made.
