Few days ago Alya noticed a binoculars in a book we were reading and asked me to get her one right away. A toilet paper roll project seemed like a great option to combine an art activity and an actual toy as a result.
What we used:
- 3 toilet paper rolls
- liquid paint
- glue gun
Alya chose white color to paint the rolls and each of us finished one. Then I unrolled the third one to get a straight line, and I wrapped it around the binoculars in the end so they stay together. We painted it red.It took around an hour for all pieces to dry completely – Alya was really generous with paint. 😀
Afterwards I used a glue gun to stick the wrapping strip around the tubes and poked 2 holes – one from each side, so the thin ribbon could get through. This way my girl can have the binoculars on her neck, supervised of corse.Alya was extremely happy about the result and now carries her new binoculars everywhere with pride. 🙂
