Making Binoculars

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Children love playing with binoculars -- even ones with no glass! Try making these.


This idea may sound a bit ridiculous, but you will be amazed at how much fun a child will have with these!

Materials
  • Two toilet paper rolls, or a paper towel roll cut in half
  • Tape
  • Markers, crayons, stickers, and so on

Directions

  1. Tape two toilet paper rolls together to make a pair of binoculars for your child.
  2. She can decorate them with markers, stickers, and so on, and use them to spot interesting things as you go for a walk or ride in the car.
