We're getting resourceful today and using all those toilet paper rolls we have been saving! Making this adorable binocular craft is the perfect way to spend a creative afternoon preparing for St. Patrick's Day. 

These toilet roll binoculars will help the kiddos find the gold pot at the end of the rainbow or even hunt out some leprechauns! 

This binocular craft only takes the usual craft supplies (no time for anything fancy here!). So,  I'm more than confidant that you already have everything you need at home to put these toilet paper roll binoculars together.

Now, it's time to make this craft and go out for some St. Patrick Day fun!

Let's begin, shall we?

If you want to get the most of this craft, have fun using your binoculars after you have finished making your binocular craft. 

If you are keeping to the St Patrick's Day theme like we have, enjoy using your binoculars to hunt out rainbows, gold coins or leprechauns. If you are going for a more general theme and decorating your toilet roll binoculars with various colours and designs you might want to use them for heading out on a scavenger hunt!

STEP 2: Decorate craft foam

Let the kids pick their favourite decorations and start adding some pizzaz to these binoculars! We recommend using paint pens or markers and cutting out shapes from bright paper or foam.

We decided to cut out strips of white foam and decorate them with rainbow coloured dots made using markers. We later added a shamrock shape, again made from craft foam and decorated with markers. 

Glue any decorations in place.

STEP 3: Glue toilet roll binoculars together

Heat up your hot glue gun and once it's ready, glue the craft foam to the toilet paper rolls and then glue both toilet rolls together. Make sure to press them against one another firmly until the glue sets and cools off a bit.

STEP 3: Add lanyard

Then, you'll want to attach the lanyard. Cut the string or ribbon you've chosen to size so that it will fit around your child's neck. Using the hole puncher, make a hole in the outside top of both rolls.

Then, tie each end of the string to the inside of the rolls.
