Today I was on Good Day Sacramento (See the whole video here.). One of the things I talked about were these adorable Leprechaun binoculars.
You guys, they were ridiculously easy to make! I’m not kidding. The only bummer is that the kids can’t really make them by themselves. At least my 5 and 2 year old can’t. Most definitely older kids can. Lou helped with the duct tape a little bit. But Brady wasn’t really able to do much.
You need duct tape of your choice (I found this cute quatrefoil pattern at Micheals.), 4 TP rolls (or 2 paper towel rolls cut in half), a hole punch (not pictured), and some yarn. First, you individually wrap each TP roll in duct tape. Then you wrap one roll to the other with one piece of tape. May a hole punch on the outer sides. Take your yarn (or twine) and make a knot.
Voila! You’re done! This was surprisingly popular with both my little Rinos. As the lovely Melissa Cabral of Good Day Sacramento suggested, you could make these anytime of year. And she’s totally right. Spring, winter, summer, fall, and especially camping! You know this will totally be added to my camping list! Thanks for the tip Melissa!
I talked about these other St. Patrick’s Day crafts: Rich Rainbow Wind Sock and bell pepper shamrock stamp. I also showed DIY candy necklaces and a St. Patrick’s Day cake parfait. See the whole video here.
