Play Learning Tuesday: Toilet roll binoculars

We love toilet rolls... recycled ones that is. We always have a great time with them, whether it's painting or sticking. They are just so versatile and there are 101 possibilities of turning them into something fun yet functional.

So this week, we worked with two recycled toilet rolls, felt and foam, and made a pair of binoculars!

It's really quite simple, though it may take a little longer for the glue to dry. Firstly, we measured the correct amount of felt, then stuck them onto two recycled toilet rolls. For the ends, we cut the felt into smaller lengths and pasted them to the insides of the rolls. We used clothes pegs to secure the felt until the glue dried up.

Then it was time to glue the foam. We used star and moon foam pieces that we cut out ourselves.

And there we have it. Star-and-moon binoculars. Just look at how much fun EV is having!
