Kids love to explore and discover new things in their everyday surroundings. Their very own spyglass is the perfect tool for taking a close look at new treasures, both real and imaginary!
Find three cardboard tubes with three different diameters, so that each tube fits inside the next biggest size. If you need a smaller diameter, cut down the length of the tube with Crayola® Scissors, then tighten the roll and tape it securely. Cut the tubes into three lengths, from widest and longest to narrowest and shortest.
Cut two strands of yarn as long as your longest tube. Cut two more yarn strands as long as your medium tube. Attach the long strands with tape to the ends of the long and medium tubes. Attach the shorter strands to the medium and short tubes. (See the illustration.)
Slip the untaped end of the short tube in the medium tube. Slip these tubes, untaped end first, into the long tube. Pull the tubes all the way through each other so you don't see the yarn.
Tape a small piece of plastic wrap around the open end of the large tube.
Decorate your spyglass with Crayola Washable Markers and Twistables Crayons. Wide black stripes could be used to complete each end.
