Light and Shadow

What do you do with the tissue paper rolls? I have an idea of ​​using them with cellophane in this kids activity to create colored light. We will get red light through red cellophane. This is the same with other colored cellophane. Let’s try it.

What you’ll need

  • Colored Cellophane
  • Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
  • Transparent Tape
  • Toilet Paper Rolls

How to Set Up

  1. Cover the end of tissue paper rolls with different colored cellophane. Create one with multiple colors.
  2. Stick all the tissue paper rolls together on the sides with a glue gun (I used about 7 rolls).
  3. Set up a dark room.


*Cellophane is a thin, transparent sheet that allows light to pass through. Colored cellophane absorbs other colors in the light and only allow the color you see to pass through, so we see a red light through red cellophane.

Adult supervision is required for any activity presented by CHANA and Chanafavors.
