This activity would work well with a game of "I Spy," and is a good way to develop language skills by giving clues of places to look.

I can't wait to try this with my 3 year old daughter and then take a walk, looking through the binoculars to explore.

It would be fun to hide some tiny toys around the house and let your child go on a scavenger hunt with the binoculars.

My preschool class is going to use the binoculars to look at the trees as the leaves change colors this fall.

A variation on this project for younger kids is to create the plain binoculars yourself then cut out a strip of paper the right width and length to go around both tubes together. Have the child decorate the strip of paper instead of (or in addition to) the tubes. When the strip is decorated, tape it around the tubes. It is easier for the little ones to decorate a flat piece of paper than the tubes plus the strip around the 2 tubes helps hold them together for longer.
