After finishing a bottle of chocolate drink, I saw my son wash the bottle. I asked what he was going to do with it and he said he wanted to make his own binoculars. I reminded him that I was going to assist him because he would be using a cutter. I also asked him if I could record the process and he agreed.
This is super easy mode, but would require an adult to cut the bottom part of the bottles.
- two juice/chocolate drink bottles (bottles of mineral water will also work)
- scotch tape
- Wash the bottles.
- Remove the bottom part of the bottles using a cutter. Let an adult do this.
- Tape the bottles together.
- Add decorations (optional).
That’s it. It’s super easy. My kids use this to pretend they are in a safari looking for animals or sometimes, they act as soldiers and use these binoculars to look for enemies.
Here’s the one minute video of the whole process:
Have you tried doing one before? How differently did you make yours? What other items did you use? I’d love to learn from you. Share them below. =)
