Pinhole Camera

Does your child have a budding passion for photography? Building a pinhole camera out of a cardboard box will help him understand how the modern-day camera came to be invented. A pinhole camera acts as a lens by allowing only a narrow beam of light to enter the box, thereby forming an upside-down image much as today's camera lens does. With just a box or can, aluminum foil, black masking tape, a needle, and some light-sensitive paper, your child can produce his own photographs from his homemade camera, and will love showing off his creations to friends and family.

Read the instructions for making a pinhole camera.
