img_20160915_092538For our “I can see” theme, we created a pair of binoculars from a pair of empty drinking yoghurt bottles.

You will need:

  • Clean empty drinking yoghurt bottles (we used Actimel)
  • Ribbon or wool
  • Stickers
  • Thick double-sided sticky tape

Cut the bottoms off the bottles before you start.

Use the tape to stick a pair of bottles together. Tie thin ribbon or wool round the tops of the bottles for a strap. Decorate with stickers.

You can also use glass pens to draw on them, but they may not be washable or non-toxic!

Story: Jesus heals a blind man (John 9: 1-12 or similar stories in other gospels)
