A can that has been opened at one end
Nail and hammer
Tracing paper or wax paper
With a nail and hammer, poke a hole in the closed end of the can. Poke it right in the middle. Cover the open end of the can with a piece of tracing paper or wax paper. Hold the paper in place with a rubber band.
Cover your head with a twel and hold the paper covered end of the can up to your eyes. Let the end with the small hole stick out from the towel. Look through the can at something very bright. Look at a flower on a suuny day. An upside-down image of the flower will appear on the tracing paper! Look at a lamp. Look at a candle! If you like, you can decorate your Upside-downer with colored paper. Add some silver stars for a bit of sparkle.
Option: make this from a cardboard tube. Just cover one end of the tube with a circle of black paper. Hold the paper in place with tape, and poke a small hole in the center.
