Purate, spyglass, telescope, fold paper cone


My kids went to a pirate party at the weekend and they had some great crafts to do at the start before the games began. They both really enjoyed making pirate telescopes. A grown up will need to help young ones with the folding and rolling but it's the decoration part which is most fun.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Coloured paper
Sticky tape
Stickers, pens & jewels to decorate

Method
Start with a rectangle of paper.



Purate, spyglass, telescope, fold paper cone

Fold over two corners as shown.
Roll from one corner that has not been folded.

You'll find that it naturally starts to turn into a cone shape.
Roll up to leave one end wide, and a narrower opening at the other but large enough to look through.

Tape at the back.
Decorate with stickers, drawings and stick on jewels.



Can you spy treasure island?
