Introduction: Spy Gear Binoculars! Little Boy Crafts! From Toilet Paper Rolls!
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
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.
Step 2: Assembling the Binoculars!
Hot glue the 3 pieces in place!
Hold together until the glue dries.
I put a ring of glue on one side, just to make it look different and cool...
sloppy, but cool.
Step 3: Customizing and Stringing!
At this point, it's time for customization!
I super lightly misted mine with Gun Metal silver.
You can still see cardboard color in there...but for a 3 year old, it's all about getting it done fast!
Let them dry,
Then punch a hole on either side and tie a shoelace in the holes. Make sure it comfortably fits around the spies head and neck!
Step 4: Spy Time!
Your little spy will be ready to prowl!
This was so fast, free and fun! The results were nearly instant! For a 3 year old, that's critical!
These would be fun for a preschool, party or gifts!
