PVC Pipe Binoculars

 Spring is coming and why not get those kids excited to get out of the house and explore the outdoors once again.  It's been a cold snowy dark winter and my eyes as well as the kids' eyes have some adjusting to do with the sun so why not do it with a fun pair of binoculars!!  made from PVC Pipe!
Let me be honest...I have made them out of Toilet Paper rolls before but kids hammered those to death.  They were flattened within an hour.  That is why I love these ones.

 I found this bag of already cut, already sanded down pieces of PVC Pipe that was perfect for this project.  It comes with 10 pieces so you can make 5 pairs of binoculars out of one pack.  Simply glue 2 pipes together (using something like E6000 or another kind of super strong adhesive) and let them dry.
 I then glued some picture hangers onto the sides of the pipes and l also let them dry. (can be found anywhere in your picture hanging station at Lowe's or a craft store)  Tie some ribbon onto them and you are ready to go....

 I simply could not get my kids to stand still for a good picture of them using them, 
but hey I think they are a lot of fun even for moms!
