Rainbow Binoculars

rainbow binoculars

These rainbow binoculars is a rainbow craft that we made years ago. However, the binocular craft can be a great way to help kids develop many skills including scissor skills, bilateral coordination, visual scanning, form constancy, visual convergence, visual tracking, and other visual processing skill areas. Add this to your therapy tool box. Be sure to check out all of our rainbow activities for more ways to play and learn with the colors of the rainbow.


Rainbow Binoculars

This was a fun craft we made for a MOMs Club playdate.  A fellow mom offered up her stash of toilet paper tubes and this is what I came up with.
We got busy…

searching for Rainbows with our Rainbow Binoculars!

(Or, as little guy said, he had to go look for Tick Tock crock.)
This is what it started out as. 
Big Sister helped me make a set of Rainbow Binoculars for our friends to copy at the playdate.
 Use two toilet paper tubes, glue strips of colored paper around, and tape together.  Attach with yarn for handy access during Rainbow Expeditions.
Cousins during our weekend-cousin-sleep-over had fun searching for rainbows, too.


Tick Tock Crock has been spotted and sent to the hot, hot lava*
