Do you need a five minute craft project to keep your little ones entertained for the afternoon?
Try these super simple toilet roll tube binoculars. Just like Colin, toddlers will love to go snail watching with their pretend binoculars!
All you need is...
~ two toilet roll tubes
~ tape (I used pretty washi tape but ordinary sellotape will do the job too)
~ hole punch
~ Tape the two tubes together at the top
~ Repeat at the bottom
~ Punch a little hole on the outside of each tube
~ Thread the ribbon through one side & tie a knot in the end, then the other
~ Secure the ribbon end with tape
~ Voila! Super simple pretend binoculars. I told you they were easy!!
So... how are you doing with the snail trail? Have you found the first free goodie yet? The second snail has now been *hidden* somewhere on the front page of the blog... and I think you are going to LOVE today's freebie. So get your binoculars out & start hunting!
And the first group of bloggers involved have posted their snail trail posts too. Each of them has also hidden a snail linking to one of the goodies. So head on over & you might find some of the freebies early!
~ My Red Wellies has posted some lovely snail news.
~ Rocajo Studio has posted an awesome snail freebie of her own - a downloadable snails & ladders game.
~ The Krafty Cupcakes has posted a very cute snail themed etsy treasury.
Go and take a peek!
And if you fancy sharing the snail trail goodness, I may well love you forever!
