It’s holiday time! Can you feel it? Oh my – I’m going to have so much work to do when the holidays are over – children will be eating candies and chocolates (maybe you and your Mom could offer sugar-free treats, fruits, and nuts instead)!
You may have already read part one and part two of our ‘Fun things to do with an Old Toothbrush’ blog series. We’ve made a flower and a wand so far. You can find those blogs in the blog section on Rose’s website.
Well, today we’re going on Safari! If you subscribe to my letters you’ll soon be receiving a letter from me, Sasha the tooth-fairy, about my recent trip to Africa. One thing anyone needs on Safari is a good set of binoculars!
And so, today I’m going to tell you how to make your own pair. I’m only going to give you the basic building instructions. You can, of course, decorate them any way you like by painting them in camo colors, adding toothpaste lids as turning knobs; however you like!
What you’ll need:
1 – An old toothbrush
2 - Two empty toilet-paper rolls
3 - Sticky tape or glue
1 - Paints
2 - Colored pens
3 - Toothpaste lids
4 - String or yarn to keep them around your neck
How to make your binoculars:
1 - Sticky tape or glue your toilet-paper rolls together, as seen in the picture above.
2 - Glue or sticky tape your toothbrush (brush-side up) to the side of your glued-together toilet-paper rolls, closer to where your eyes would rest upfront.
3 - Decorate your binoculars any way you like. You could paint them black or camo colors. You could add toothpaste lids to use as knobs on the sides. You could join a long string or piece of yarn to either side of your binoculars, so that you can hang them around your neck.
Of course it’s best to try and stay hidden while on Safari, as to not frighten the animals off. But, if you love color and sparkles like me, feel free to decorate your binoculars with all of the things you may have used to decorate your wand and flower.
Keep in mind, of course, that these binoculars require one special item for you to actually be able to see the animals up close. Lenses, you might say? You’re quite right, and in this craft the lenses will be your powerful imagination!
Well, by this time next week Christmas day will have gone by and New Year’s Day will be the next celebration. So, from Rose and me, we wish you the most awesomest, wonderfullest, amazingest Christmas ever!
See you in 2019!
Keep shining brighter,
If I were a Crocodile
