It’s that time of year again! St. Patrick’s Day is getting close! Have you noticed anyone causing mischief around your house? This time of year they say there are leprechauns lurking about and they like to play tricks on people. They are so quick and small that they are hard to see. But here’s a trick for you – make some leprechaun binoculars to help you look for the leprechauns!
You’ll need 2 empty toilet paper rolls or 1 empty paper towel roll (cut in half), some construction paper, scissors, glue, markers, a piece of string or yarn and whatever you want to decorate with like mini pom poms or stickers, etc. First cut a piece of construction paper the length of each empty toilet paper roll and long enough to wrap around it.
Glue one end of the piece of construction paper to the empty toilet paper roll, then wrap the paper around and glue the other end.
Hold it in place a little bit till the paper holds together on its own.
Do the same thing for the second roll.
Glue or use double sided tape to hold the 2 rolls together so they look like a pair of binoculars. Decorate them in ways that might be appealing to a leprechaun. They seem to like green, white, black and gold or the colors of the rainbow. Here I added some mini pom poms.
I added a rainbow and a shamrock to my leprechaun binoculars. What will you add to yours?
Poke a hole at the top of the binoculars on the two outside edges. Tie one end of a piece of string or yarn to each hole so that you can wear your binoculars around your neck.
And there you are! You’re ready to go looking for leprechauns! Happy Hunting!! 🙂
