In line with my posts how to actually do some art with children and kid art supplies that make it easy, I thought I’d share some of the fun, achievable, and still beautiful children’s crafts I think are good ones. This project was inspired by the beginning of summer and something special to enhance playing outdoors. Although now that I think of it, a pair of binoculars are nice to bring out indoors too on a rainy day or in the middle of winter.

Somehow binoculars make looking at ordinary things interesting – perfect for when everyone needs a new pair of eyes to make the house come to life again.


  1. Two paper rolls
  2. Acrylic paints
  3. Paint brushes
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Yarn
  6. Hole punch


  1. I laid down some newspaper for our work area. Then put out a paper plate with our different color paints.
  2. Paint paper rolls! Can do inside and outside (for older artists) or just outsides.
  3. Allow paint to dry. (Acrylic paint dries quick!) Glue paper rolls together with hot glue gun.
  4. Hole punch a hole in the outside to tie on yarn.
  5. Tie yarn on at a comfortable length for child’s size.

I love the pretty marbling children of a certain age do when given the freedom to paint as they like!

The binoculars hold up well with lots of play. But with how inexpensive this craft is, I may just do them again whenever we get too much wear and tear.
