Children's Crafts - How to make a Periscope

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Periscope craft project from www.walkaboutcrafts.comMaking a Periscope

Ask a grown up to help you measure up the shape and cut out the cardboard - it is important to get the shape right so that it all fits together nicely.

You will need:
25 x 20 inches sheet of thick cardboard
Sharp scissors or hobby knife
2 make up mirrors about 3 x 2 inches
Masking Tape

1. Using the ruler and pencil, copy the periscope shape onto cardboard. Mark dotted lines, mirrors and viewing slot.

2. Using scissors, cut along the solid lines and then cut out the viewing slot

3. Score the cardboard along the dotted lines to make it easier to bend. To do this, put the ruler on the dotted line and run the point of the scissors or knife along it, cutting slightly into - but not through - the cardboard

4. Fold along the dotted lines to check the shape of the periscope. Flatten out again, then glue the mirrors into place.

5. Glue the periscope together, working on one edge at a time. Stick masking tape along the edges to reinforce the joins. When the periscope is finished, you can decorate it with paints or sticky paper shapes.
