Crafternoons: Toilet Paper Binoculars

A simple craft but with some new tips for using recycled materials around the house to encourage outdoor exploration.  Creating binoculars, a telescope, or a mini treasure box with recycled materials is a great activity for multiple ages.  Use stickers for younger children or allow older kids to create their own designs and problem solve how to best build and secure materials together.
