Underwater Magnifier (show 1184)

Jack's favorite bath toy is his yellow submarine. How 'bout another cool idea: Want to make a magnifying glass for your bathtub or your favorite frog pond? It's super easy!
 
You'll need:
 
     * a 1-liter plastic bottle
 
     * some plastic wrap
 
     * scissors
 
     * a rubber band.
 
First cut the top third from the plastic bottle. Then cut off the bottom off the bottle. You'll be left with just the middle section, which is now a cylinder. Next, cover one open end of the cylinder with some plastic wrap; secure it with a rubber band.
 
That's all there is to it! You now have an underwater magnifier. Look through the open end, and objects like bath toys, your toes and fingers, etc. will appear larger, allowing you to get a closer look. Have fun!
