If you’ve been around a 3 year old much at all, then you know that it doesn’t take much to spark that little one’s imagination. Cardboard tubes, for example, are always, always the beginning of some great fun!
Our most recent creation was binoculars which led to going on a sort of “window and patio safari” in our apartment.
You would not believe the animals we saw!
There were hippos, crocodiles and all sorts of animals. They just kept showing up!
Take a look…
Don’t see it? Look a little closer…
Ahha! You had to see it that time, right? That elephant just snuck right in there!
We couldn’t just look at them, though. The camera came out to take lots and lots of pictures.
It was great fun.
AND it was one of my favorite things, because it was FREE! Love that.
Don’t be limited to just binoculars, though! Here are a couple more fun cardboard tube (toilet paper or paper towel rolls) posts from my old blog (click on the pictures to check out the posts).
