You’ll think I’m crazy (and you’re probably right! lol) but I have a dedicated shelf in my craft cabinet for toilet paper rolls. They take up so much space as I collected so many in the last few months but never had enough time to use them all. I do have a nice home decor project in mind, but time is not my friend! Until then, I’ll settle for smaller projects like these kids spy binoculars.
This binocular craft is not only easy and oh, so crazy cheap to make, but also makes a great opportunity to spend quality time with your kids and teach them a little about nature. There is also a free “I spy Spring” printable that you can download below and use when taking the kids outdoors to play with these paper binoculars.
Go through all the items on the list and have them mark them off. It’ll be lots of fun, trust me!
