Preschool Craft Project - Spotting Scopes

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
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • 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!
