Upcycled Safari Play Binoculars Craft for Kids
Summertime is the season of outdoor adventures and imaginative play. Making a simple pair of toy binoculars can inspire a backyard safari, a game of eye-spy or endless imaginative adventures. They're easy to make, super customizable, and provide hours of creative play.
1. Decorate your two tubes. We used markers, wrapping paper, and duct tape, but the options are endless. Try fabric, tissue paper, ribbons, paint, or collaging magazines. Wrap some duct tape or paint a thick stripe around one end makes them look more like real binoculars.
2. Glue the tubes together side to side and let dry.
3. Add a yarn, twine or ribbon loop so your kid can hang the binoculars around their neck.
