Make 3D Glasses

My boys love the show "Chuck". Tonight they are having a 3D episode, but we didn't have any 3D glasses.

You know what this spells?.... OPPORTUNITY!

The boys thought it was more than cool when I told them that we could make our own 3D glasses.

Supplies You Need:
an old pair of sunglasses
transparency paper
1 blue Sharpie marker
1 red Sharpie marker

Directions:
Pop the lens out of the sunglasses and trace around the lens to make new ones out of transparency paper. If you are like my boys and wear glasses, use your existing glasses and trace around the lenses to make transparency lenses (just DON'T pop out the lenses - Ha!). Color one transparency "lens" red and one blue.

Be sure to put the blue lens on the left eye and the red lens on the right eye. (It makes a difference.)

Wasn't that easy?

Wish I'd had a pair of homemade 3-d glasses for those crazy commercials last night. Thanks for the tip!
