Spring has sprung! And that means outside is going to be a tad bit louder in the mornings now that birds are out chirping. My children are always admiring the birds from our balcony so we decided to go bird watching. And what does every good bird watcher need? Binoculars!
It was time to craft. In my home, we keep everything! I mean, everything can be turned into a craft project the way I see it. I have a box of recycled materials from toilet paper rolls to plastic fruit containers that I save. You never know what you’ll need for a craft, honey!
For this craft you will need:
Anyway, the kids grabbed the toilet paper rolls, yarn, scissors, markers, and foam shapes to decorate their binoculars. Once they were satisfied with their design, I stapled the two rolls together at the top and bottom. Then, I punched a whole on each side. Put yarn through, gave it a triple tie and we were ready to look for birds. If you do not have a stapler, you can put a generous amount of glue along the outside and put the two rolls together. It will take a few hours to dry. I recommend leaving it overnight. Your other option is to use tape, maybe a pretty colored one to wrap around the two rolls.
The kids were so excited to head out with their new inexpensive binoculars to become professional bird watchers, hahaha.
