You will need

  • Two empty toilet rolls
  • Sticky tape or glue
  • Scissors
  • String or shoe laces

Optional for decorating

Method

  1. Stick the toilet rolls together
  2. Measure and cut your string so it is long enough to wear around your neck
  3. Help your child cut a small hole on the top outside edge of both toilet rolls
  4. Take one end of your string and thread it through the hole you made
  5. Tie a knot to secure and repeat with the other side of the string
  6. Colour in or use stickers to decorate your binoculars.

Now, you’re ready to go on the bear hunt…
