Toilet Paper Roll Binoculars + Nature Hunt

Quarantine has shown us all just how precious our toilet paper is right now so why not get some use out of those toilet paper rolls, too! This is an easy craft both toddlers and preschoolers can easily complete with minimal assistance. Not to mention, your little explorers can put them to use almost immediately after they are finished. Here is what you’ll need!

Supplies needed:
2 toilet paper rolls
Hole punch (optional)
String (optional)

Clear the rolls of any remnant tissue and let your child decorate two rolls with stickers, markers or other decorating supplies. Wrap tape around both tubes to hold together. You can also use hot glue between the tubes to secure them together. Regular glue will work, but will take loner to dry before you can use them. I punched holes on each end of the binoculars and tied string to it so my toddler could keep them on her neck. My preschooler did not want a string so we skipped that step for him.

Nature Hunt Activity:
Pick 4-5 things you can find in your front or backyard. Discuss where you might find them and why. We looked for a magnolia leaf, a roly poly, a blue jay and a butterfly. We saw a blue jay with a twig in his mouth and discussed why that might be. We had trouble finding a butterfly and hypothesized we might find one near flowers and discussed why. Happy hunting!
