All it takes is two empty toilet paper rolls, glue, paper, ribbon and a hole punch to make this super cute binocular craft from Celebrations.com writer Lauren DeBellis for kids ages 3 – 5. Make them together, then, send the kids off on a hunt for bugs, rocks and other backyard finds.
Binocular Craft Supplies:
- Two empty toilet paper rolls per set of binoculars
- Camouflage-themed scrapbook paper (we found ours at AC Moore)
- Glue stick
- Hot glue gun
- Hole punch
- Plastic bugs (optional)
Binocular Craft Steps:
Turn scrapbook paper over and measure enough to cover the entire tube. Make cut marks with a pencil.
Cut paper out and glue onto paper tube using a glue stick. Repeat with second paper tube.
Hot glue the tubes together.
Punch one hole on the side of each tube, approximately three inches down from the top.
Cut a length of ribbon long enough so binoculars will hang comfortably from child’s neck. Thread ribbon through one hole and knot. Glue to reinforce and repeat with other loose end.
For decoration, hot glue a plastic bug or two. Let dry. Kids can then wear these and use them to hunt for real bugs during the campout party!
