How to make your binoculars

Take your toilet roll tubes and attach them together to make some binoculars. You can do this with a little glue or tape, whatever you have to hand.

Why not decorate your binoculars to make them extra special and personal to you?
 
 
Safari animals 
 
If you're using our animals, print out the A4 sheet of paper and cut out the animals.

Use the bluetack to stick them around the room, or in multiple rooms. Try and do this without your little ones watching so they don't know where they are!

If you have some animal toys, do the same with these, hiding them high and low around the space you've chosen to play.
 
Grab your binoculars and off you go! See if you can spot them all. You could also make a tick list to check off as you go and draw pictures of what you see as if you are studying them in the wild.
 
Idea! Do this activity outside in your garden if you have the space. Hiding the animals in the grass, trees and shrubs to make it really feel like you could be in the wild.
