Binocular Craft

Binocular Craft

WP_20130820_004As part of our recent Safari Theme we made binoculars.  Its a very quick and easy craft which lends well to so many pretend play themes, as well as looking at nature.

For each child you need two toilet paper rolls, a strip of paper with materials to decorate and a string.  Cut a strip of paper which can easily wrap around both rolls (this is what will be holding the craft together) and have the children decorate it (the skies the limit here).  Cover the plain side of paper with glue and then place the toilet rolls in the middle and wrap the ends of the paper over with one side covering the other.  Punch two holes and tie an end of the string to each side of the binoculars.



Quick and easy.  Now its time to go on a bear hunt (check out ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt‘ by Rosen and Oxenbury for a fun song/book to add to the activity), or bird watching or on safari.
