  • Small bowl
  • Black construction paper
  • Rubber band
Line Bowl with Paper

Arrange the piece of construction paper so it lines the bowl. Secure it with a rubber band.

Fill Bowl with Water

Fill the bowl with water. Put the bowl on a larger plate so your table doesn't get wet. (The water soaks through to the edges of the paper.)

Test Out Your Mirror

Your water mirror will only reflect if you have a source of bright light. Try going outside or standing by a window on a sunny day. Move around until you can see yourself in the water.
