My daughter used to love watching Go Diego Go. She still occasionally watches it, but is now getting past the preschool television show age. On the show, they use a spotting scope, so we decided to create our own. This is a very easy, simple, and fun preschool craft project or an easy craft project for any child really.
Things You'll Need
- Empty Paper Towel Roll
- Construction Paper
- Crayons or Markers
- Stickers (Optional)
Step #1 - Start by having your child put glue on a peice of construction paper. You can use a glue stick or your standard white glue.
Step #2 - Wrap the construction paper piece around the paper towel tube. The glue may not hold right away; therefore, you might want to use a little bit of tape for reinforcement.
Step #3 - Cut the excess construction paper from the ends of the paper towel tube.
Step #4 - Decorate the tube; we cut smaller peices of construction paper to create a layered effect, added stickers, and so forth.
And you now have a spotting scope!
