How to Make a Magnifying Glass?


Creating a magnifying glass is a simple project but it does require following a few steps. You need to have a sturdy stable surface, a table or a box that won't shake or wiggle around. If your item is on a plastic slide, place that on the table, if it is not, place it down and put a piece of glass on top of it to hold it still. Place a few drops of water on top of the slide or the glass, and allow them to form a large droplet. When you look through the water droplet everything that you want to see will be larger. What a great little project for kids!
