How to Make Binoculars out of Toilet Paper rolls

  • By: Michaela King

Are you looking for a quick, easy and fun project that you can do with your child? This article on how to make binoculars out of toilet paper rolls is surely going to be a winner.

Little art and craft activities give an opportunity to teach kids important concepts like recycling, taking turns and teamwork.

When you work with a child on something they are interested in you actually make a deep emotional connection with the child.

Without further ado let’s get into the details.

Supplies you need

  • 2 cardboard tubes for one binocular: You can use the tubes found inside a toilet roll for the purpose.
  • A stapler: You may also use a glue gun or crafts glue.
  • A 20-inch long string: You may use yarn or ribbon for making a string.
  • Paints, colours, or crayons of your choice.
  • Washi/Masking Tape (Optional)
  • Stickers (optional)
  • Paper Punch (optional)

Making binoculars at home steps

I will recommend you buy a professional binocular for your kids besides making one at home. This will help your kid have a true feeling of binocular.

  • Decorate the tubes using paints, coloured paper, crayons or colour pencils.
  • Take a small strip of washi tape and fold it around the edges of both the tubes, so that the edges give a neat look.
  • Now place the two tubes side by side and staple them so that they are tied together. You may also use a glue gun or crafts glue if you do not want to use a stapler.
  • Punch two holes, one on each side of the tied tubes.
  • Tie a string in both the holes, with each end of the string connected with one hole, and make a hanging string for the binocular. If you do not have a paper punch, you may also use a glue gun or crafts glue to attach the string to the tubes.
  • If you wish, you may further decorate the binoculars with stickers and washi tape.

Ta-Da!! Your teeny tiny binocular is ready.
