First, let's make shakers or rain sticks.
Get your hands on:
*markers, paint, crayons, crayons, colored paper, glue, ect.
*wax paper or parchment paper - cut into two 2 by 2 inch squares for each shaker
Let each child decorate their own roll. As much as I tried to get my kids to cover their rolls in colored paper, they were not interested. They just wanted to color their rolls with markers, but the decorating options are endless. My oldest tried to make it into a person. She drew a happy face on one side and a frowny face on the othr side. Then she decorated the middle like a shirt or top.
Decorate the two rolls.
Staple the two rolls together by putting a staple or two one each end of the pair.
Punch holes - pick one end of the binoculars and punch one hole on each inside edge of the binoculars (two holes total). Don't punch the holes on the outside edges because the yarn will then go right in front of the eye holes.
Place yarn through holes and tie.
Binoculars finished and imaginary nature hikes begin.
So start saving those toilet papers rolls and craft on!
