Make play binoculars

These binoculars are fun to make and even more fun for little ones to play with! They are easy to craft too – just watch our step-by-step video to show you how.

What you need:

  • 2 toilet rolls
  • length of ribbon or string (long enough to hang around your child’s neck)
  • stapler
  • masking tape
  • paint or stickers to decorate

Number of players:


Watch the below video to see how to make play binoculars.

Line up the toilet rolls parallel to one another and staple them together (on the inside) at one end.

The toilet rolls should now be fastened together to resemble binoculars.

Tape each end of the length of string to the inside of the combined toilet rolls (your child can use this to hang the binoculars from their neck).

To decorate, your child can paint the binoculars or stick stickers to them.


  • For an authentic look, wrap the binoculars in aluminium foil.
