Coolest Kid Birthday Parties

Coolest Kid Craft Idea: Styrofoam Cup Binoculars

A great kid craft idea for most parties is setting aside a craft table with glitter, glue, stickers, markers, crayons, colored papers, etc.

For my daughter's 3rd birthday - a Safari party, I decided to create a special attraction at the craft table.

The only problem was that I decided to do this just a day before the party...

Armed with a hot glue gun, Styrofoam cups and colored cellophane (all of which we had in the house), I started designing the ultimate party binoculars. After all, how can you see the animals in a Safari without. binoculars?

As the kids arrived they received the binoculars and went straight to decorate them. And they really got into it! Some parents protested that I hadn't made enough binoculars. for them.

I photographed the entire process and put together this craft page with all the info to help you create your own Styrofoam cup binoculars.

Enjoy.
