Make Some Kid Binoculars

Be on the "Lookout" With This Easy Craft Idea

Kid Binoculars

Go birdwatching with our kid binoculars!

Made from simple toilet roll tubes, these field glasses are an easy child craft that you can make with the kids. If your kids like to camp out in the backyard or stalk wild animals in the bushes, they'll definitely need a pair of our kid binoculars.

Let's take a look at what you'll need to make this craft!


  • Two toilet paper rolls

  • Colored wrapping paper

  • Scissors

  • String or ribbon

  • A stapler or wide-width scotch tape

  • Hole punch


  • Place your toilet paper roll on a piece of wrapping paper

  • Measure the length and width of the roll and cut the paper accordingly

  • Glue the wrapping paper to the toilet paper roll, tucking in the excess paper on either end of the roll

  • Staple two toilet paper rolls together (or, for a stronger hold, tape them together using wide-width clear adhesive tape

  • Using a hole-punch, make two holes at the sides and thread using ribbon or string

    Now your kids are ready for some serious stake-outs!

    How to Use Craft

    1. The first use would be simply as a prop during playtime. Maybe your kids want to do some "birdwatching" or take a jungle safari to watch wild animals. Let them use their imaginations when playing with this prop.

    2. I used these binoculars as a learning tool when teaching ESL to young kids. Each child was given a pair at the beginning of the lesson. We then sang a "Who do I see..." song, and we would look through our binoculars and say the name of each student in turn. I also liked to place large flashcards throughout the room and ask the children, "What do you see?" which initiates the response, " I see....(whatver was on the flashcard).
