Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Pirate Spyglass

Posted on: June 11, 2009

(My boys are into pirates.  So we had to make a pirate craft.  We made spyglasses.  The boys loved painting them, stickering them, and playing with them.  Some stickers don’t bend well around the paper towel, which is just silly, so you can have some freak outs.  My boys had the plastic wrap off within seconds of playing with them.  Arrrr!)

Things you need:

  • Empty paper towel roll
  • Smock
  • Paint or markers
  • Stickers (optional)
  • Plastic wrap
  • Scissors
  • Rubber bands

Have the child decorate the paper towel roll with the markers or paint. 

Finger painting?  Didn;'t I give you a brush?

If the child uses paint, let the roll dry. 



Have the child decorate it with pirate stickers. 

Looks more pirate-y!

Cut a piece of plastic wrap big enough to cover the end of the paper towel roll.  Wrap a rubber band around the plastic to make it stay.  Repeat with the other end.

There be a mighty fine spyglasss, mateys!
