Leprechaun-Spotting Binoculars

Spotting leprechauns is a demanding job – but you and your kids can make the right equipment with materials you already have at home! You’ll need: empty cardboard tubes or juice boxes, green paper, pipe cleaners, string, tape and glitter glue. If using juice boxes, open the ends and shape them into a cylinder. Cover each tube with construction paper. Cut pipe cleaners to fit around each opening and glue them in place. Decorate the outside of the binoculars with more glitter glue. Tape the tubes together, and attach the string. Start looking for leprechauns!

Cut a buckle from yellow paper and tape to the front of the box. Enjoy a refreshing sip!
