Long story short, my girlfriend was trying to put together this Otona no Kagaku kit
and lost the plastic lens pieces that it came with. She's super bummed about it and I want to surprise her with a replacement (I know I could just buy another kit, but they're not cheap and it seems wasteful). The piece is featured in step 7.1 of the above link. I think I just need two identical plastic lenses slightly smaller than 1" in diameter. Any ideas how I can make or purchase the replacement lenses? Bonus points if it's in NYC...
Alternately, if I do just end up buying a new kit, what kind of fun can I have with this thing? I thought a pinhole camera would be fun to make but there must be some other fun ideas...
