How to make a periscope

¡Learn how to make a periscope to observe from hidden places!

 

 


This periscope is very usefull to watch birds while you are hidden in the undergrowth or to observe people from behind walls. It is a good tool to spy without beign seen.

The following materials are needed: a sheet of paper, a big cardboard (at least a DIN A3), two small mirrors, scissors, glue, adhesive tape and crayons.


 

Start printing in the paper sheet the pattern of the periscope you find at the end of this page.

Once the pattern is printed, copy it on the cardboard in bigger size. You can photocophy it in a bookshoop.

 

 

 

Cut by the strong line the edge of the periscope, its windows and its diagonal grooves.

Then, fold it following the dashed lines to the interior of the prism. Look at the right picture.

 

 

Fix the prism gluing the grey tabs to its interior walls.

The superior and inferior covers will close the box.

Let it dry for some hours.

 

 

Put the mirrors through the diagonal grooves. They have to face each other in 45º angle.

You have to be able to see a mirror reflected in the other.


 

Now, fix the mirrors with the adhesive tape to prevent them to move out from the periscope.

To finish, decorate the exterior of the periscope. Use colors to camouflage it from its environment. For example, if you are going to use the periscope in the forest you may use green shades. If you want to use it in snowed zones you may use light shades, even a unique white color.


 

 

We have our periscope ready.

 

Go to the closest window, take your periscope and observe what is going on in the street.

¡You will spy without being seen!
