Remember those clear, 35 mm film canisters you get your film in? Those are great for many Craft Ideas for Adults. Just take a bit of mirrored paper board that you can pick up at a local craft store, add some cake sprinkles and plastic wrap and you have a micro kaleidoscope. Take the film canister and drill a small hole in the bottom. Then you fold the mirrored paper into a triange and tape it inside the canister. Put a few of your cake sprinkles inside the lid of the canister and tape some plastic wrap onto it. Now place the lid back on the film canister. When you look through the hole at the bottom of the cannister and turn the film cannister in your hand, the sprinkles will create and change shapes against the mirrored kaleidoscope. Isn’t this a great craft idea!
