Let’s explore! Binoculars help us see up close when an object appears far away. They are part of a great explorer’s kit, and scientists rely on them for up-close inspections of natural elements, big and small.
We made some super fun crafty binoculars that pair perfectly with our songs “I See Something Pink” and “I See Something Blue”! Be sure to take your binoculars on a color hunt, scavenger hunt, and a walk outside. You can also bring a notepad and a pencil to write notes about everything you discover. Now let’s get started.
Things you’ll need
- 2 paper tubes
- Construction paper
- Decorative tape
- Hole punch
- Glue stick
Mark the width of the paper tube with a small pencil mark on your construction paper. Draw a line across the paper. Repeat these steps for the second paper tube.
Next, cut out these two strips.
Use your glue stick to add glue to the strips of paper. Tape one end to the paper tube and wrap the paper around it. Finish with some tape on the edge.
Wrap some decorative tape around the top and bottom edges of both tubes. Tape the paper tubes together at their taped seams, both top and bottom ends.
Add decorative tape around both tubes. Use a hole puncher to punch holes on either side. Attach a ribbon through the hole at both ends, long enough to wear around your neck. Add stickers if you like. Get decorative!
