INSIDE: Toilet Paper Roll Binoculars Craft is an adorable craft to create anytime of the year. This easy craft is perfect for your little bird watcher or adventurer. It is great for kids of all ages and easy to create using recycled materials.
This fun binocular craft is perfect for preschoolers and kindergarteners. But older kids would enjoy these as well. They make a great pretend play activity and pair well with many books about adventures such as safaris or searching for gators! They of course are perfect for pairing with any book about birds and bird watching.
Had I thought about it I would have made these with my kindergartner during the lock down when we saw so many different kinds of birds right in our backyard.

Toilet Paper Roll Binoculars Craft
Grab toilet paper rolls or a paper towel roll cut in half and paint the tubes. Set them aside to dry.
While they dry, create your binocular strap. Take a string, yarn or ribbon and tape one end to the end of table or surface and let your little one decorate the string with pony beads or cut paper straws.
Once your rolls are dry glue them together and secure with clothespins.
Time to Decorate your Binoculars
Let your little one decorate their binocular and make them their own using stickers, washi tape, gems, pony beads or whatever you have on hand!
When they are done, use a single hole punch to attached the strap on either side of the binoculars.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
