Make your own 3D glasses!
Posted on December 29, 2012 by Little Brownie Bakers
On Jan. 12, 2013, girls can make history by participating in the first-ever National Girl Scout Cookie Sleepover. What could be more fun? How about experiencing part of the program in 3D! Girls don’t need 3D glasses to enjoy the show, but they will certainly add to the fun.
You could purchase inexpensive, cardboard 3D glasses and let girls decorate them. You’ll need the type that is red-cyan. (Clear glasses that come with 3D TVs won’t work.)
But 3D glasses are simple to make. Here’s how!
- Sturdy cardstock or poster board
- Sheets of red and cyan (bluish) acetate (available at your local craft store)
- Print off this handy template for your 3D glasses on cardstock. Be sure to print enough for all the girls attending the sleepover.
- Cut out the glasses and the holes for the lenses.
- Cut out pieces of the acetate in cyan and red.
- Tape the red acetate over the LEFT lens hole, and cyan to the RIGHT. (The glasses will not work if the colors are reversed.)
There you have it! Your girls are ready for the premiere of the National Cookie Sleepover — in 3D!
