Paper binoculars for kids are perfect for backyard explorers and nature-lovers. Create this paper craft with a few supplies and a wild imagination.


What You'll Need:

  • 2 toilet paper tubes
  • 2 large wooden beads
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Thin yellow tape
  • 1 yard black cording


  • Paintbrush
  • Craft glue
  • Paper punch

Step 1: Paint both tubes and the wooden beads black. Let dry, then run a strip of colored tape around both ends of each tube.

Step 2: Line up the tubes, and glue the beads between them. Let dry.

Step 3: Punch a hole in each side of the binoculars, close to one end. String the cord through one hole, tie a knot on the inside to hold in place, and string through the other hole. Knot this end on the inside as well.

Now you're ready for a backyard safari!
