Default Need help to create rainbow colors indoors

I am new to this forum, so please bear with my questions. For a first grade science project, we are trying to create an indoor rainbow using a prism (from one of those Discovery store play kits) This is not an issue when there is direct sunlight as it is fairly easy to create it. But I dont think we can get direct sunlight on the day of the fair as it is in a room with not too many windows around. So, we tried to use a regular flashlight but that was useless. So my questions are as follows:
1. Has anybody tried to create a rainbw indoors using a flashlight maybe of a specific kind?
2. Any ideas on how else this can be accomplished?
Thanks in advance.

SmartyC is truly a scientist!
Lightbulb I haven't....

I haven't heard of anyone doing this project with a flash light. Crazy idea, use the door! Like set up your display somewhere near a sunny area.

Default ok

maybe you could get 5 flashlights and put colored wrappers over them and then put a like mirrors around them in the right shape so the rainbow isn't straight.
Ya, i got nothing. I live the bored
