Do you have a little spy?
I do.  When he's not cruising in his jet packs...
he is sneaking around corners with his toy gun in hand.
I figured some spy binoculars were in order!

These are easy!  About 10-15 minutes...

Step 1: Gathering the supplies!

You will need:
3 toilet paper rolls
hot glue
spray paint
rope or shoelace

Start by cleaning the toilet paper rolls off...I let my 8 and 10 year-old help with that part!
Cut a small 2 inch or so piece off 1 of the tubes.
Make it curve on either side, so it snuggles the tubes on each side.

<p>simple and fun</p>
U could also buy lenses so that you could see like 20 feet with $1.00 lenses
Love the idea, just use some kind of breakable cord for the neck harness. That way the kids will not hang themselves accidentally.
the lace would pull free of the cardboard.
My children have always been really careful with the things they play with...I think it's because I make them help with the construction...gives them ownership. I wondered if I should reinforce the tube with eyelets or something. The simple fact was that I made it out of garbage...so when it gets trashed, it will get trashed. After 2 weeks of play they are holding up great, not even smashed yet! :) <br>
If you want to reinforce it I would suggest a piece of tape in and outside the tube then punch a hole through the tape and cardboard sandwich. the tape will help hold the cardboard together. Or you could hot glue a washer to the side where the hole is.
Yep, you could definitely do something like that! :)
But, I think Shantinath1000 is right, the tube will tear before there is a problem...
That is so adorable! So perfect and so simple to make :D
Thanks again! You have to go cheap when a 3 year old is involved...that way you aren't heartbroken when they are destroyed! :) He used them last night to gaze at the moon! :)
